In addition to traditional schooling, Meg attended a number of Music Institutes on scholarships for studies
in classical music performance and music theory including The Interlochen Arts Academy National Music Camp in
Michigan, on a Sigma Alpha Iota National Scholarship. She joined the Local 47—Los Angeles chapter of the
American Federation of Musicians at the age of 18 and by the following year, in 1970, was working full-time as a
classical violinist and a Los Angeles Recording Studio musician, often as soloist and concertmaster.r She continued
music studies at California State University at Northridge until 1973, but with a full music schedule, further studies were
put on hold until 1980. At that time, years of formal, strictly regimented music study and performance, a growing son and
a growing interest in the arts as therapy led to a decision to attend an accredited alternative education program. She
transferred from C.S.U.N. and enrolled in The Union—Undergraduate program-West, University Without Walls to focus
on studies including Domestic Violence, Violence and Human Behavior, Non-Verbal Communication, Psychodrama,
Human Interaction, Buddhist Meditation and Mental Development. She received a BA in 1983 with a double emphasis in
Music and Psychology.
