From Our Editors
Guitar, drums, piano, and vocals; recording, composition, and performing; musical theater, reggae, and classical. Somehow, Justin and Megan McDonough have studied it all and still have the energy to share their passions with others as studio manager and school manager at Resonate. In addition to lessons for students as young as age three in popular instruments such as violin and guitar, Resonate’s instructors forge musicians ready to make a splash in the modern music industry with sessions in topics such as music theory, digital production, and audio engineering. The latter can be put into practice in a recording studio, where full-semester students get an hour of free time to put together a polished recording. The artists supplement musician-aimed lessons and resources with harmonic services for hire—producing ad jingles and voiceovers, composing original songs, and humming lullabies to squalling babies.
