Meg is a classically trained jazz pianist who holds a Bachelor of Music (Performance) with Distinction from the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University, where she was also the recipient of the Conservatorium Medal (2018), the Sid SJ Bromley Jazz Award for Outstanding Student (2017), the Victoria Chalmers Education Award (2014), and the Sir Samuel Griffith Scholarship. 

Originally from rural Queensland, she is now based in Brisbane, where she works as a performer, composer, bandleader, and educator.  With a love for learning new styles of music and ways of playing, Meg has pursued performance opportunities in jazz, salsa, pop, Colombian, and Indian music.  Her particular passion for vocal music has facilitated her extensive experience as an accompanist for musical theatre, choirs, and classical, jazz, and pop soloists.  Meg was most recently engaged as the Musical Director Mentee for the 2019 Women in Voice production at the Brisbane Powerhouse, and as the substitute Musical Director for the 2019 A Very Naughty Christmas show by Understudy Productions.

As a composer and songwriter of jazz and pop fusion, her work blends harmonic complexity with catchy, appealing melodies, and is a reflection of her personality and musical style.  Meg was a featured composer and performer at the 2020 Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University Season Launch, and at the 2019 Women of Noise International Women’s Day concert in a celebration of female composers.  Her original music is available now on YouTube and SoundCloud; listen and read more here
