Margaret Knight has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in music education.
Ms. Knight became involved in her profession because she was inspired by her mother, who was a piano teacher and imparted the love of music to her. In pursuit of becoming a music educator, she first earned an associate’s degree in piano teaching at the Royal College of Music in 1957. A year later, she was licensed in voice culture, aural training and school music and psychology in the ensuing years. From 1959 to 1965, Ms. Knight worked as an assistant to the head of the department of music at Thistley Hough School. She became head of the department of music at Macclesfield High School until relocating to the United States in 1972. Since then, Ms. Knight has worked as a private piano teacher.
The highlight of Ms. Knight’s career was meeting her high school music teacher, Greta Fleetwood, who was an inspiration to her as she wanted to do what she was doing. In addition, she was recognized as a county music scholar by the Cheshire County Council in 1955. In her career, Ms. Knight maintained professional affiliation and has held various executive roles with the Music Teachers National Association, the National Guild of Piano Teachers and the New Jersey Music Teachers Association. In her career, Ms. Knight served as an adjunct member of the faculty at Crewe Teachers College, directed student activities at the South Jersey Music Teachers Association and represented the state of New Jersey at the Associate Board of the Royal Schools of Music.
