"The long line of family tradition is what got me in, but the insurmountable passion and camaraderie that developed is what kept me hooked."
Megan Moede, a Dallas-based musician, describes her musical beginning as a family tradition. Crashing cymbals, stomping kicks and syncopated beats belonged first to her brother, Ian, before Megan picked up her own pair of sticks. She also found musical inspiration from her Father, who graduated from Julliard with a music degree. Drumming has carried Megan far; she’s participated with performance groups including Drum Corps International and Winter Guard International and now works at Lone Star Percussion in Dallas, TX.Megan has always been drawn to helping aspiring musicians – she’s taught students of all ages – and she encourages her students to take the time to study and practice. It’s no surprise, then, that Megan’s CHIME Gives design, focuses on a more technical side of percussion. Megan translated a fundamental pattern of drum strokes, the paradiddle (RLRR) into Morse code.
