Morgen Stiegler - Educator
Morgen is the Applied Jazz Voice faculty at Bowling Green University and teaches jazz and pop voice in her private studio. As instructor for ethnomusicology at BGSU, where she graduated with a MM, her research has focused on the Native American connections to Jazz—an effort rooted in the heritage she shares and seeks in her music. Morgen has also taught courses in jazz history and vocal jazz pedagogy among others.
She has studied voice with New York Voices' soprano Kim Nazarian, and was a founding faculty member of the BGSU NYV vocal jazz camp. She has worked in lessons, master classes and workshops with Peter Eldridge, Jennifer Barnes and SJ Hasman-Selby among others.
Morgen has directed and arranged for vocal jazz/ a-capella ensembles at Bowling Green State University, Tiffin University and Terra Community College. She has extensive experience as accompanist for choral ensembles, including the multi-ethnic Balkan Youth Link Chorus that performed for the United Nations in New York in 2000.
