Chris August Megert's Musical Education Edit
Chris Megert is a self taughtBold text instrumental musicianBold text who always had immense natural musical ability. While many people at his church helped him learn to play keyboards, guitar and drums he was an unusually quick learner who seemed to pick up the instruments like a prodigy.
When he was in his young 20's Chris enrolled in the music program at Collin College in Plano, Texas where he studied Audio Engineering in their Work Force Education Program. While attending Collin College his most significant musical training was spent in the study of the voice with Professor David Alexander, a classically trained singer who has an uncanny understanding of the vocal mechanism. Professor Alexander was a former student of several of the greatest singers and vocal pedagogues of the 20th and 21st Century including the late Greek Contralto Elena Nikolaidi and the leading pedagogue and author W. Stephen Smith.
During his time with Professor Alexander Chris was carefully brought to understand his natural, beautiful voice. Under the careful guidance of Professor Alexander Chris' voice blossomed from that of an awkward rookie to a polished professional singer. It was during this time that he recorded the demo that would launch his career into motion. He worked every song on his demo with Professor Alexander and carefully recorded them following Alexander's exact advise - advise that would enable him to acquire a record deal with Geffen Records label.
