The addition of Meghan and Diego provide our teaching artists with a conduit for information, help determine appropriate placement for students in the programs, provide support for partnerships and leverage the tools and technology for all involved to make PCM stronger and more able to unleash the power of music.
“We are incredibly honored that Meghan and Diego are choosing to join PCM in these leadership roles. Having seen them in action as Teaching Artists, we are thrilled to work with them in this new capacity and look forward to the innovation to programs and care they will provide to our Teaching Artists and students,” said Regina Nixon, PCM Executive Director.
Meghan brings to the role a holistic understanding of music education through years of teaching, initially through violin, adding many other types of music education and administration, and looks to strengthen communication at PCM through a foundation of effective listening. Diego’s experience as a music educator through guitar, administration, technology, and other formats, provides him the ability to implement processes to make PCM run more smoothly through easy access to shared resources.
