Previous employment

Voice Instructor 

Marble Music Studio, Seward, NE

Creating music and finding my own voice is very important to me. My name is Meredith Wohlgemuth and I am currently a vocal arts student at The Juilliard School, pursuing my Master of Music in Vocal Arts. My greatest joy is performing for and with people who need to experience something beautiful and help them, along with myself, to be more loving, caring, and creative people. I thank God every day for my loving husband, Luke, my supportive family and friends, and my sweet cat, Sox.  Thanks to everyone who has helped and encouraged me along the way. I am looking forward to a wonderful first year at Juilliard!
