About Kelly

Introduction

Hi, my name is Kelly Meholic. I have about 20 years playing experience and 12 years of experience teaching private flute lessons. 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 and to see them reach their goals whether it is gaining confidence in their playing, making All-State, or winning a competition. I have taught beginning to advanced private flute lessons to children and adults in person and online all across the country including Hawaii and even as far away as Ital
y. 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.

Biography
I was born and raised in Sarasota, Florida and became interested in studying music at the age of 12. After weeks of gazing longingly through the window as my twin sister crossed the street to her French horn lessons, I was determined to play an instrument too. I asked my mom if I could take horn lessons, but my sister's teacher advised that I should play another instrument so there would be less competition between the two of us. She told me there was a fantastic flute teacher down the street though and so I began walking to my flute lessons. That flute teacher was Betsy Hudson-Traba, principal flutist of what is now the Sarasota Orchestra. Meeting her and starting flute lessons set my life down an incredible journey through music that would eventually take me halfway across the world.

With Betsy's instruction and encouragement, throughout high school I played principal flute in Sarasota’s youth orchestra program and was a winner of the Young Artist Competition. I attended the prestigious Interlochen Arts Camp where I was exposed to many wonderful artists and teachers. With a lot of hard work, I was able to win first chair flute in the FMEA 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. Her teaching gave me a greater understanding of tone development and movement and also pushed me to understand more about myself as a person. 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+ flutes! It was truly incredible having a weekly audience of 80,000 football fans cheering us on. One of my favorite and more unique ensembles I participated in was the Andean ensemble, Aconcagua. I played the zampona (panpipes) and the quena (Andean flute). I loved it because it gave me the chance to play flutes still, but in a different capacity that was much more free than the classical music setting I was accustomed to.

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. Through their help I was able to refine skills and demonstrate greater musicality in my playing. Performance was emphasized greatly in lessons and in our school curriculum. I also had many opportunities to pursue my love of travelling and work on my foreign language 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 play in the Alpharetta Symphony Orchestra, as well as serve on the orchestra board. 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.

Jared L.

Kennesaw, GA

About Jared

I am passionate about music and I strive to share this passion with my students. I started playing guitar at age seven and have been hooked ever since. I have been teaching and playing gigs for years and I have just graduated from Kennesaw State University with a Bachelors degree in Jazz Guitar Performance. I can help students with a variety of styles including Jazz, Blues, Country, Funk, Rock and Metal, Folk, Finger style and Classical guitar.

Lessons are tailored to where you are as a player, what your goals are and how serious you wish to be. No matter what, music should always be fun an
d something you love, and I believe I can help inspire you to have the same love for music that I have. You will find me to be a laid back teacher. Students will develop skills in a wide variety of areas including reading, chords, scales, modes, and how to use all of this to make meaningful music.

Guitar · In studio
Mr. Jared Leach has been my instructor for almost a year and a half in Cartersville, GA. I'm an "older" student at 56-yrs who's been on/off with the instrument (guitar) over the years and Jared has met/exceeded my expectations for formal music instruction. Looking back over these past 18 months - Upon initial instruction, Jared does a fairly good skill assessment and works with the student ("me") to remediate their weaknesses and builds on their strengths AND (most importantly) provide a study/training routine that rewards the student while at the same time keep them out of their comfort zone and growing as a musician. His diverse musical interest and taste in many genera of music is impressive and rubs off on the student. His passion is contagious so one must be ready to work, have fun at it and - before you know it - you're making music !!!

About Tim

My name is Tim Warren. I am working on my Bachelor of Music in Music Education at Shorter University. My primary instrument is the euphonium, but I have had the opportunity to study the workings of each brass instrument. I started playing trumpet in middle school and did so through my freshman year of college. During the first semester of my sophomore year, I switched instruments to euphonium. Although I am a teacher, I am still constantly learning. I continue to take privately under Mr. Anthony Avitollo. I have passed multiple performance evaluations, students recital performances, and
a junior qualifying exam. I am preparing to perform my senior recital on March 31, 2017.

Trumpet · In studio
Tim meets my 7th grader at the middle school and gives him lessons in the band room after school. My son switched from Clarinet to Trumpet at the beginning of the school year and we new we would have to do some hard work for him to catch up to his peers. Tim is GREAT at diagnosing students' problems with breathing, tone, or whatever it might be and helping to find a solution.

My son LOVES playing the trumpet and a lot of it is due to Tim. He is affordable and he is very professional for a college student. I would recommend him.
