About this pro

Meghan Davis, MT-BC, is an alumna of Loyola University New Orleans, where she graduated from the College of Music and Fine Arts with a Bachelor of Music Therapy in December 2013. While at Loyola, she sat principal flute of the Wind Ensemble and the Loyola Symphony Orchestra. Since 2014, she has practiced as a Board Certified Music Therapist in music therapy and private teaching. She has played the flute for over 15 years and continues to play and teach regularly.

Meghan founded MusicAbility with the intention of creating a space for EVERYONE to feel they can be an active music maker. She has experience with a wide variety of students and clients, including Autism, Down’s Syndrome, Vision Impairment/Blindness, Learning Disabilities, ADD/ADHD, Anxiety/Depression, and Dyslexia.

She prides herself on her ability to create effective, age-appropriate lesson plans in order to help all her students be successful and feel respected.

In the past five years she has lived in Louisiana, Minnesota, Texas, & California, and has now decided to make a home with her husband (and parents nearby) in Franklin, TN.

The lessons we absorb when learning an instrument can be carried with us through our whole lives. My philosophy of learning revolves around taking it slow, emphasizing positive self-talk, and adapting teaching style depending on how the student will best achieve success.

    Easy scheduling - flexible times available and they come to you! Really professional approach and Meghan deeply cares about putting together a plan that suits the individual.

    My instructor, Meghan, was very friendly and super professional. I’ve always wanted to learn an instrument (the flute in particular) - and I have felt self conscious about doing it a little “later” in life. She totally put me at ease and made me feel comfortable. She has tons of patience, which I greatly appreciate. Thank you, for everything!!!!

    Meghan is a great teacher who takes the time to get to know her students, and tailors her lessons to their specific needs. Her background in music therapy gives her tools that not all teachers have. Would highly recommend MusicAbility for absolutely anyone.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with many different types of students including special needs, adult students, retirees, visually impaired, ADHD, & Learning disabilities. The more students I have taught the more I feel learning an instrument is one of the most accessible, universal, and valuable skills out there. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

In regards to flute lessons: If you want to make progress quickly, I would avoid a teacher who teaches all woodwind instruments. The flute is a complete different beast from your average woodwind instrument. Someone who is specialized in the flute will be able to give you much more efficient and useful help.
