After years of composing bits and pieces of songs in her head, at age 14, Margo finally wrote her first complete vocal/piano solo. Months later, she began taking piano lessons from Brent Jorgensen, composer of the popular "Hymnplicity" series for LDS Ward choirs. At Brent's encouragement, Margo entered the New Era magazine's hymn and songwriting contest for the first time, where she received Honorable Mention. She later went on to receive First Place in the contest for six consecutive years. Each of her first place compositions was published in the New Era magazine, allowing people worldwide to become acquainted with her music. (Five of her songs were published under her maiden name, Margo Faraoni.)
Margo has received numerous other rewards as a result of being published in the the New Era, including landing an appearance on the television show "Center Street", produced by the LDS-owned Bonneville International Corporation. She also garnered the attention of her then-future husband, Trevin, who heard her music while on his mission in Puerto Rico and decided to contact Margo when he returned home.
In 2004, Margo earned a degree in Music Theory and Composition from Arizona State University, following studies with professors James DeMars, Jody Rockmaker, and Randall Shinn, among others. That same year, she received an "Award of Merit" from the L.D.S. Church Music Submission for her a cappella choir setting of the hymn text "The Lord is My Light". The following year, she received an award of "Special Recognition" from the Submission for her arrangement of the hymn "As Zion's Youth in Latter Days".
Both by herself as well as with her husband, Margo has spoken at firesides and youth conferences throughout Arizona as well as in parts of California, Texas, and Montana. She currently enjoys serving as choir director of her LDS Ward.
