Magen Dignan

Board Certified and Licensed Music Therapist/Music Teacher

Magen DignanMagen joined the Victory Team in 2015.  She was born and raised here in Portland, and she also lived on the East coast for 12 years. Magen and her husband, Ted, moved back in 1998, when their first son was born. She received a BA in English literature from Boston University and a BA in music therapy from Marylhurst University. In addition to her role at Victory, Magen has taught piano since 1996 in her home studio.

Magen believes deeply that music is a gift meant for everyone and can open a whole new world of communication and self-expression. She has experienced the transformative power music has had in the lives of her students here at Victory.

Magen loves to spend her free time with Ted, their two sons, Mitchell and Seamus. They enjoy spending time at the Oregon coast and camping with their three dogs.
