A Bit About Megan
Megan Masson, mezzo-soprano, is a Southern California native with over 10 years of musical experience.

Now located just north of Los Angeles, Megan sings in the Los Robles Master Chorale under the direction of Dr. Lesley Leighton and cantors at churches throughout Ventura County.

"For the contextual understanding of this super-positive student testimonial of voice teacher Megan Masson, you must know that this 54-year-old turned to Megan to build my public singing self-confidence. I always thought I could vocally nail a Guns & Roses or Bon Jovi hit in Karaoke Carpool ever since the late 1980’s, but recently I heard a recording of myself, and it was adolescent in projection.
Right from the start of our weekly, half-hour Zoom virtual practice sessions, Megan organized our time to include scaled baritone warm-up exercises, a weekly series of fun and easy-to-follow practice drills to strengthen my vocal cords, and recital practice of the rock songs I wanted to sing publicly. Megan gets an A+ for building my personalized singing curriculum.
I also want to thank Megan for nudging me into experiencing other vocal registries. I will always remember our hilarious sessions working my voice strength higher into a falsetto just to see if I could match contemporary rockers. It was during those sessions that Megan extended her teaching to clue me in on the physiological processes of the larynx. I am so grateful for that learning extension. If you’re looking for a highly personable, highly knowledgeable, and highly adaptive voice teacher, I recommend you contact Megan Masson. Megan is awesome.”
