Kelly H.

Marietta, GA

About Kelly

Kelly has taught private flute lessons for 10+ years from beginning to advanced skill levels and children to adults. She has also helped with marching and concert bands as a woodwind instructor in various schools.

Kelly was born and raised in Sarasota, Florida. She started taking flute lessons at the age of 12 under the instruction of Betsy Hudson-Traba, principal flutist of the Sarasota Orchestra. Throughout high school, she played in Sarasota’s youth orchestra program and was a winner of the Young Artist Competition. She also won first chair flute in All-State multiple times. With
a solid foundation in flute playing, she went on to study with Eva Amsler at the Florida State University where she earned her Bachelor of Music in flute performance. She had a lot of wonderful playing opportunities here and as an undergraduate was playing in the top orchestra. Kelly was a member of the “world renown” Marching CHIEFS, where she served as section leader to 50 plus flutes. One of the more unique ensembles she participated in was the Andean ensemble, Aconcagua, where she played the zampona (panpipes) and the quena (Andean flute). Kelly decided to go abroad for graduate school earning her Master’s at a small conservatory in beautiful Lugano, Switzerland called the Conservatorio della Svizzera Italiana. She studied under Italian flutists, Mario Ancillotti, Stefano Parrino, and Giovanni Crola. She had many opportunities to pursue her love of traveling and work on her foreign language skills! After heading home to the States Kelly began her freelance career substituting in various orchestras in Florida including the Sarasota Orchestra, Sarasota Ballet Orchestra, and the Southwest Florida Symphony Orchestra. She now lives in Marietta, Georgia where she teaches privately and freelances. In addition to music, Kelly loves spending time with family, friends, and her adorable kitties (Ron & Harry) and dog (Leia). She also enjoys reading, hiking, baking, organizing, and cleaning!

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

Mike is a stern but gentle teacher. He is very easy going, however, Mike is very willing to push a student to reach their potential should they need it. In his own studies, Mike focuses on Jazz and improvisation. He enjoys many other styles of music as well such as rock, pop and classical.

Mike's focus for beginners learning the guitar is on technique and theory. His approach is to use basic chord progressions and single note reading. In addition he incorporates any song the student brings in and would like to learn. Mike believes that learning comes best when the student has songs they are interested in. Of course the specifics of a student's curriculum will be shaped by that student's interests.

Rich G.

Woodstock, GA

About Rich

I am a public school music teacher by day (11 years experience), a private music teacher by afternoon (16 yrs), and a gigging musician and DJ by night (16 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,
Don Grosh Custom electric guitar,

It has been both a pleasure and a blessing for me to have Ms. Collver as my voice instructor. Within the first two lessons she was able to immediately recognize what we needed to work on the most in order to bring out the best of my voice and so she created a well developed plan that we have been productively working on. Furthermore, Ms. Collver, does a great job at making one comfortable and confident every step of the progress by making sure each concept she teaches is firmly grasped.
