Megan Koch, a Wisconsin native and midwestern transplant to Texas, is an avid performer and educator in the DFW metroplex. Returning to Fort Worth Opera as a Resident Artist for the 2021-2022 season, she will make her mainstage debut in Verdi's popular opera, La Traviata. You may have seen Megan perform with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra on their America Strong concert which was locally broadcasted. Along with her operatic endeavors, she has a plethora of choral experience, having sung alongside both the King’s Singers and the Voces8 Foundation.
Teaching and music have always been two of Megan’s biggest passions, leading her to pursue a degree in Music Education at Illinois Wesleyan University. She has her license to teach K-12 music in both Illinois and Texas. At the University of North Texas, she completed her Master of Music degree in Vocal Performance and her Graduate Artist Certificate in Opera. Throughout her time at UNT, she has sung abroad in Bulgaria and the Czech Republic.
Megan’s approach to teaching is to meet every student at their level and to help them reach their goals through healthy technique, expression, and music literacy. In her studio, students are encouraged to explore their voices in a safe and supportive environment while also learning habits of effective practice. Her enthusiastic approach to teaching motivates students to expand their comfort zones and be open to major growth. She has experience teaching all levels of singing from first-time singers to advanced artists. Her former students have gone on to major in music and music theater, while others simply enjoy singing and want to continue to improve. All are welcome!
