Megan Gluhan started playing the piano at age 5. And five short years later, when St. Patrick’s Church in Watsonville was desperate for a pianist, Megan was booked for her very first gig! From there Megan started playing for the Moreland Notre Dame School masses, and then weekend liturgies thanks to the encouragement of her music teacher, Leslie Henderson.
More encouragement came from Fr. Matt Pennington, who got Megan to first start singing about 5 years ago at San Agustin Church in Scotts Valley. Fr. Matt convinced Megan to do a duet with him on Holy Thursday in front of the Bishop! When Megan discovered she could sing, it inspired her to start writing music for the Catholic Church. Since then Megan has written over 30 songs, many written with the help of her silent writing partner Jan Smith.
Megan is currently the Music Teacher and Music Director for Holy Spirit School & Church in Almaden Valley. It’s a dream position because she gets to use her gifts and talents and love of music to serve God!
