Music Teacher's Biography
Dr. Meisha Adderley
Meisha Adderley is one America’s leading young pianists acclaimed by critics for her “calm restraint” and “tempestuous and stormy” playing. Her virtuosity has led to performances across the United States and abroad including Italy, Australia, and the United Kingdom. As an emerging artist, she won the Paul W. Hagan Concerto Competition and, most recently, completed a residency as a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar at the University of Sydney’s Conservatorium of Music where she lectured and performed throughout the continent. With an active schedule as clinician, adjudicator, and soloist throughout the nation and abroad, her compact disc of piano duo works was released by Albany Records on November 1, 2012.
 
An accomplished pedagogue, Dr. Adderley has presented her research and instructional methodology at national and regional conferences and symposia including those of the National Conference on Keyboard Pedagogy, College Music Society, Music Teachers National Association (MTNA), and Music Educators National Conference. A master teacher and dedicated educator, she was awarded the “Lois Bailey Glenn Award for Teaching Excellence” by the National Music Foundation for a grant written for the implementation of an American Music project. She has received additional grant awards from the Community Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, South Carolina Arts Commission, and the Hamels Foundation for innovative educational projects for community music initiatives and the Charleston (SC) and Philadelphia Public Schools.
 
Dr. Adderley earned the Doctor of Musical Arts and Master of Music degrees in performance and pedagogy from the University of South Carolina, a Performance Diploma from the University of Sydney Conservatorium of Music (Australia) and the Bachelor of Music degree from Indiana State University.  She is a Nationally Certified Teacher of Music (NCTM) with the Music Teachers National Association and holds a professional teaching certificate in music with the South Carolina and Ohio State Departments of Education.  Prior to her current tenure at Holly Springs-Motlow Elementary, she taught at Briggs High School and Capital University in Columbus, Ohio.
