Meg Pash

Instructor

Meg Pash teaches Renaissance and Baroque Dance and Lute, and coaches ensembles including Renaissance Dance Band, Lute Ensemble, and 17th-Century song Seminar. She has been a performer of early repertoires as a singer and on lute and viola da gamba since the late 1970s, and has toured, recorded, and taught at workshops in the U.S. and Europe. Meg holds a bachelor’s degree in Voice and two master’s degrees in Early Music Performance with concentrations in voice/viol and lute/historical dance from New England Conservatory. She subsequently joined the NEC faculty as Collegium Director and taught courses in performance practice, music history and historical dance. She has often veered off the classical path into modern and traditional folk, world music, classic jazz and classic rock. Currently a faculty member in the Five College Early Music Program, her teaching style is informed by performance practices across historical and modern genres. She is glad to work with students from beginner to advanced levels through collaboratively designed course content and lessons. She is a member of the modern folk trio Muse3.1 (voice, bass viol, electric bass), and AyreCraft (viols, lute, voice), a quartet performing song literature from John Dowland to Warren Zevon.
