2022 Music Scholarship Winners

          Megan Blood: 2022 Cheryl Iley Lindstrom Church Music Scholarship in Piano

        Megan Blood is a pianist, pedagogue, and teacher of all ages. Her goal in teaching is to create lifelong          musicians and independent learners who can adapt to many different musical experiences, and to serve         God through joyful music making. Megan earned a Bachelors of Music in Piano Performance and Masters         of Music in Piano Performance and Pedagogy at the University of Idaho. She performed throughout the         Pacific Northwest with the Vandaleers Concert Choir and as a soloist of works such as Gershwin’s         Rhapsody in Blue and Scriabin’s Black Mass Sonata. While in Idaho she served at First Presbyterian         Church of Moscow for several years, playing piano and organ, and singing with the worship band and choir.         Megan is currently a DMA Candidate in Piano Pedagogy at the University of South Carolina, where she         teaches group piano and accompanies opera and solo vocal students.

          Alyson Smith: 2022 Cheryl Iley Lindstrom Church Music Scholarship in Piano

        Beginning at eight years old, attending piano lessons on Monday afternoons became the norm. Some         weeks were better than others in terms of my practice, but each week I grew more and more. It never            crossed my mind that music would become an integral part of my life. Since then, recitals, festivals, and 12         fun filled years have passed. Presently, I am a piano teacher with 17 students studying music performance         and finance at UNCC with a dream of starting a piano school. This has been a surprising journey filled with         unexpected opportunities from God whom I am greatly blessed by.


          Shelby Moss: 2022 Martha Strawn Iley Church Music Scholarship in Voice
        Shelby is a junior Music Education Major at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Shelby has a         strong connection with music ministry, beginning with her involvement in church music as a child. Her time         participating with music ministry has been a strong force in shaping her love for music and her decision to         become a music educator. She currently serves as a McCormick Music Intern at First Baptist Church in         Greensboro, where she sings in the Sanctuary Choir and works with the Children's Music ensembles.                          She is excited to share her passion for music and faith through music ministry for years to come.
