Meet Meredith Hyatt Lewis

Meredith Hyatt Lewis began singing at a very early age in the community of Lawrenceburg.  She was singing and participating in 4-H Variety Shows as well as traveling around to local churches where she needed a milk crate to see over the podium. Her love of music lead to many years of voice, piano and organ lessons along with her love of choral music at school and church. She was a member of Fred Waring’s US Chorus and a Sweet 16 Academic Showcase Vocal Performance participant. Meredith began studying at UK for private voice instruction as a Freshman in High School and found her way to Eastern Kentucky University where she was involved in EKU University Singers, Show Choir and Theater.  She is a graduate of Anderson County High School and Eastern Kentucky University with a Bachelor of Music Merchandising Degree.

Meredith Continued to expand her singing and dancing through her involvement in Lexington Musical Theater and spent her college years performing for Kings Island, Paramount Parks Touring Shows, Shanty Creek Schuss Mountain Resort and the Department of Defense USO Tour of the Mediterranean. She has provided special entertainment for the Miss Kentucky and Kentucky Junior Miss programs as well as a variety of other special performances.

Meredith began teaching private instruction and formed Lawrenceburg Academy of Performing Arts, Inc. in 1995. She expanded her studio offerings with Kindermusik and began a studio in Lawrenceburg before purchasing the established Kindermusik of Danville Program and starting a third program in Frankfort, Kentucky. Meredith then spent 10 years in public education teaching 1st through 5th grade elementary general music, choir and drama programs in addition to maintaining her private studio.
