Meghan Dibble has been teaching privately for 10 years. She began teaching during her course work at California State University, East Bay. There she focused on college aged students who were interested in exploring their singing voice. Ms. Dibble then attended Northwestern University where she received a master’s degree in Vocal Performance and Literature. During her master’s program, Ms. Dibble specialized in vocal pedagogy. Ms. Dibble worked with a variety of students between the ages of 7 and 52 in both Chicago and New York City. While living in San Francisco, she currently teaches voice in her home studio as well piano lessons at the Chinese American International School. Ms. Dibble is a board member of the San Francisco Bay Area Chapter of the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) and a member of The Etude Club of Berkeley.
As a mezzo soprano, Ms. Dibble made her debut last October with Pacific Repertory Opera in San Luis Obispo singing Ruth in The Pirates of Penzance after debuting with the Redwood Symphony singing the Old Lady in Candide. Last spring she was seen singing Cherubino (Le nozze di Figaro) with San Francisco Cabaret Opera and Mercedes (Carmen) with Rimrock Opera in Billings, MT, and as Aunt Clotilda in The Haunted Manor with Pocket Opera. Last June, Ms. Dibble premiered Inez Serrano in the new opera based on No Exit by local composer Zachary M. Watkins which was double billed with her as Miss Todd in Old Maid and the Thief with San Francisco Cabaret Opera at the Live Oak Theater in Berkeley.
Ms. Dibble sang Dorabella (Cosi fan tutte) with West Bay Opera in Palo Alto and Cherubino (Le nozze di Figaro) with Rimrock Opera in Billings, MT. Other roles include Suzuki (Madam Butterfly), Mrs. Page (The Merry Wives of Windsor), and the Governess (The Queen of Spades) with Pocket Opera. She participated in the New York City Fringe Festival opera premiere, A.F.R.A.I.D., Suor Angelica with Garden State Opera, and Thomas Pasatieri’s Signor Deluso with Opera Company of Brooklyn. Other roles include Marcellina (Le nozze di Figaro), Fidalma (Il matrimonio segreto), and Siebel (Faust).
Ms. Dibble sang Agave in Steven Clark’s opera Dionysus, and has performed several songs from D.C. Meckler’s The Albion Deity. A new music enthusiast, Meghan is thrilled to be working with several local composers including Kirke Mechem, Mark Alburger, DC Meckler, Steven Clark, and Sheli Nan
Whether you are an aspiring singer or pianist, young or old, I will help you find your inner musician.
Specializing in beginning piano and all levels of singing, my years of teaching experience will inspire your creativity and encourage you to focus on your unique talents.
I am pleased to offer lessons in Berkeley and San Francisco to all ages.
I strongly encourage students to audio record their lessons to refer back to during the week’s practice at home.
All students are asked to obtain their own music books which can range in price between $7.00-$25.00 or be checked out form the library. Some singing books come with CD accompaniments which can be used at home for rehearsing.
Please provide at least 24 hour notice when cancelling a scheduled lesson time.
