Meredith started the violin at the age of 3 and a half learning from the Violin Suzuki Method. From there, Meredith expanded her horizons and found her love for alternative styles, specifically Scottish Music. She graduated Cum Laude from Baldwin Wallace University Conservatory of Music with a bachelor degree in Music Performance. Meredith then went on to pursue her Masters of Traditional Music at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland located in Glasgow, Scotland and graduated in 2018.

Meredith has had the immense pleasure performing in the US, Canada, and Scotland over the years. Some of her performances included playing at a white house Christmas party, playing in front of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra at Hienz Hall, and performing for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at the Holyrood Palace.

She has also won regional competitions in Scottish fiddle and has placed up to 2nd in the National Scottish Fiddle Competition. In 2017, Meredith competed in the National Association of Accordion and Fiddle Clubs Festival and won the championship for the Slow Air category.

Meredith has studied under a number of teachers including, TanyaSatteson, Leah Givelber, Dr. Julian Ross, Dr. Melinda Crawford Perttu, and Alistair McCulloch.

In addition to performing, Meredith has been certified to teach Suzuki Books 1-8 in violin and 1-7 in viola. She enjoys teaching both classical and alternative styles, primarily Scottish fiddle music.
