We are so pleased to welcome Margaret Flower into the community of teachers here at CYM! Ms. Margaret joins our vocal department for the 2016-2017 school year.
Margaret Flower, soprano, is a resident of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where she recently moved back to after spending two years in Texas. She lately completed her Master of Music degree in Vocal Pedagogy and Performance at the University of Texas at San Antonio and holds a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education from Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York. Margaret has taught private voice lessons at the middle school, high school, and collegiate level at the Comal Independent School District and The University of Texas at San Antonio. Her focus is on developing healthy vocal habits that allow students to continue their music throughout their lifetime, instilling whole-body performance, and providing pedagogical tools for students to continue their study independently. Margaret has appeared as Miss Todd in the UTSA Lyric Theater performance of Menotti’s The Old Maid and the Thief and on the Lincoln Center stage singing Verdi’s Requiem with the Ithaca College Choir. She has also appeared in opera scenes as Orphée Gluck’s in Orphée et Eurydice and The 3rd Lady in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte. She is looking forward to starting her new studio with CYM!
We're fascinated to know more about Ms. Margaret, so we sit down for a little Q+A:
CYM: What is your favorite piece of music to play and or favorite composer?
CYM: When/where/how do you listen to music for fun?
CYM: What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you?
Ms. Margaret: I seriously considered going into law or criminal justice. I wanted to be a detective and solve crimes, probably due to the many episodes of Law and Order I watched growing up. My mother joked about me becoming "the singing detective."
CYM: Where do you live? Would you like to share anything about your family/roommates/pets?
CYM: Favorite childhood book?
