This is good for the student who does not play in an ensemble to have the opportunity to play and listen to other moving parts.

I must say that Mr Daniel is doing a very good job. This was my third lesson, and he is not going through a set program but is teaching me where I'm at. So he is eliminating any waste time.
I will rate Mr. Daniel with 5 stars

Kelly M.

Acworth, GA

I teach flutists of every age and level. In the beginning I like to ask each student what their goal is so that we can work towards that, whether it is to become first chair in band, make All-State or youth orchestra, play for Solo & Ensemble, perform with their church, or to just have fun and learn a new skill. In my lessons, I use positive reinforcement and encourage regular practice.

For beginners, I usually recommend doing a 30 minute lesson once per week and then increasing the lesson time and/or frequency as they become a stronger player. I use the Rubank Method for Flute as well as Pares Scales for beginning students. Once they have become more advanced I assign more challenging etude and scale books. When the student has a grasp of the instrument, I present solo repertoire and orchestral excerpts tailored for each level. I try to keep each student's goals, ability, age, and interests in mind when choosing music to keep the lessons engaging and fun!

About Kelly

I am very lucky to be able to share my passion for playing the flute with others for a living! It is so fun to hear how students grow with each lesson! I have taught beginning-advanced private flute lessons for 10+ years from children just starting out in band and adult beginners wanting to cross off an item on their bucket list! It is never too late to start, and can actually be very good for improving your breathing!

In 2009 I graduated from the Conservatorio della Svizzera Italiana with my Master's in Flute Performance. Prior to that I attended Florida State University and earned my
Bachelor of Music in Flute Performance.

Bio
I was born and raised in Sarasota, Florida. At the age of 12 I started taking flute lessons with Betsy Hudson-Traba, principal flutist of the Sarasota Orchestra. Throughout high school, I played in Sarasota’s youth orchestra program and was a winner of the Young Artist Competition. With lots of hard work, I also won first chair flute in All-State multiple times.

With a solid foundation in flute playing, I went on to study with Eva Amsler at Florida State University where I earned my Bachelor of Music in flute performance. I had a lot of wonderful playing opportunities here and as an undergraduate was playing in the top orchestra. During my time at FSU I was a proud member of the “world renown” Marching CHIEFS, where I served as section leader to 50 plus flutes! One of my favorite and more unique ensembles I participated in was the Andean ensemble, Aconcagua, where I played the zampona (panpipes) and the quena (Andean flute).

After undergrad, I decided to go abroad for graduate school earning my Master’s at a small conservatory in beautiful Lugano, Switzerland called the Conservatorio della Svizzera Italiana. I studied under Italian flutists, Mario Ancillotti, Stefano Parrino, and Giovanni Crola. I also had many opportunities to pursue my love of travelling and work on my foreign language skills! Although, I could use some more practice… would love to find some Italian and German students to brush up my skills!

After heading home to the States I began my freelance career substituting in various orchestras in Florida including the Sarasota Orchestra, Sarasota Ballet Orchestra, and the Southwest Florida Symphony Orchestra. I now live in Acworth, Georgia where I teach privately and freelance. In addition to music, I love spending time with my family, friends, my husband, Vance, and our adorable kitties (Ron & Harry) and dog (Leia). I also enjoy reading, hiking, baking, organizing, and cleaning!

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in flute and piccolo solo, orchestral, band, and chamber ensemble playing and also audition prep.

My granddaughter McKenzie was new to high school band. She was a little nervous about learning to play the flute and the life of a new high schooler at the same time. Kelly set her fears aside and was very patient with her. We feel blessed to have such a good teacher. The waiting area in her home is very comfortable

My daughter Clarisse had her first lesson with Kelly today, and we are very happy with how the lesson went. Kelly is professional and skilled as a teacher, as well as a fantastic flutist herself. We look forward to future lessons to take Clarisse's flute playing to a whole different level.

Rich G.

Woodstock, GA

I have studied flute through the college level

About Rich

I am a public school music teacher by day (14 years experience), a private music teacher by afternoon (18 yrs), and a gigging musician and DJ by night (18 yrs). I manage a highly successful cover band called The Retreat that performs all over the southeast. I have lead and arranged the worship music at a local church on Sundays and also have numerous original songs that have been recorded and published.

With all of this experience teaching, I am GREAT with kids and always PROFESSIONAL in my conduct.

I have 3 degrees in Music Education:
- Bachelors, Indiana University of PA
- Master
s, Auburn University
- Educational Specialist, Auburn University

I teach lessons on:
- Guitar
- Piano
- Saxophone
- Bass Guitar
- Drums
- Flute
- Recording and Music Production
- Songwriting

*** Lesson Details ***
The goal of music lessons is not to just learn the notes and mechanics of an instrument, but to become a well-rounded MUSICIAN. With my lessons, we don't just go through a book page-by-page, rather, lessons are shaped around the musical tastes and interests of the student. Musical theory concepts are applied in actual songwriting and current popular songs. I accompany the students on various instruments, imitating a real performance situation. I teach all ages; beginners to advanced musicians.

Unlike a crowded music store with a cramped little room for lessons, my lessons are taught in a large, open, and well-lit home studio. There is an open waiting area where parents can listen as well. Parking is convenient on a cul-de-sac with a clear view into the teaching studio.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Nord Stage 2 88 piano,
Yamaha Custom saxophone with Theo Wanne, Meyer, and Selmer mouthpieces,
Dr. Z RxJr amplifier with 2x12 cabinet,
Dr. Z M12 amplifier,
Don Grosh Custom electric guitar,

I am so thankful we found Rich! With my own degree in piano performance, everyone thinks I should teach my daughter myself. But with Rich she is not only learning how to read music, but how to play by ear and improv. She loves him cause he's so "chill" and is always positive with her. Couldn't ask for a better teacher!

I have been taking piano lessons from Rich for a little over a year now an it has been such a pleasure! Rich centers the lessons around my interests and goals but also challenges me in areas where I struggle. He has always been very supportive and such an encouragement. Being able to see my process is a great experience! I would recommend Rich to anyone.

Carey M.

Conyers, GA

I have taught flute privately for over 8 years. I believe that lessons should be fun and informative. I also believe in hard work and collaboration. I expect students to be prepared for each lesson with all necessary materials and eager to learn new material each week. As I mentioned earlier, I believe lessons should be collaborative meaning that the student and I will decide together what materials are best suited for their goals and needs.

About Carey

I have a Master of Music in Flute Performance Degree with Distinction from the Longy School of Music in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 2008 and a Bachelor of Music in Flute Performance, Magna Cum Laude, from Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Georgia in 2005. I have studied flute under Christina Smith and Carl Hall both of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Robert Willoughby. I have performed in numerous master classes as well as been a member of the National Wind Symphony in New York City. I earned merit scholarships from both the Longy School of Music and Kennesaw State University. I am
a member of Phi Kappa Phi, National Society of Collegiate Scholars, Golden Key International Honor Society and Pi Kappa Lambda Honorary Music Society. I currently maintain a private studio teaching students in Rockdale, Morgan, Newton and DeKalb Counties. I have adjudicated for the Georgia Music Educators Association as well as taught sectionals and marching band camps for area schools.
