Micah D.

Kennesaw, GA

About Micah

My philosophy is simple: have fun with what your doing, no matter what it is!

You can always be working hard---working diligently, and studiously while having loads of fun. That's something I consider with every student who comes through my studio-- we may be drilling and playing passages over like a well oiled machine for good autonomy, but don't be fooled! We're laughing, smiling and having a good time while learning perseverance, discipline, life force, and a WHOLE lot of creativity. Yeah, you heard me, I just used all caps right there.

I'm a professional violinist, and so naturally
I do a whole lot of violin-related-stuff in the Atlanta area: clinics, performances, lectures, masterclasses ect… I have performed with the Georgia Symphony, Rome Symphony, Columbus Symphony, Kennesaw State University Symphony, Ludwig Symphony, Macon Symphony, and Chattanooga Symphony. Currently, I am the new concert master in the Alpharetta Symphony.

And you know what the coolest part is? I want to teach YOU anything under the sun you'd like to learn! That's right, I teach Violin and Viola lessons for ABSOLUTE beginners all the way up to highly advanced students. Many of my students started with me having no clue how to even hold their bow, and in just 4 MONTHS, I was preparing them for auditions for regional all-state orchestras and playing in volunteer orchestras. Yes, you heard me right, I currently have students who have won placements in the Beethoven Chamber Youth Orchestra, Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra, Emory Youth Orchestra, Metropolitan Youth Orchestra, and All-state orchestras.

Oh and it gets better. Music education is an all-encompassing art form, folks. I've studied the psychology of learning to play a musical instrument for over 15 years, and I've learned not from a textbook, but from EXPERIENCE that learning to play music teaches you more than just how to make music. Test scores in math, Language Arts, and problem solving skills are substantially higher in individuals who learn an instrument that those who don't. That's a statistic that's stood the test of time for the last 30 years in the realm of music pedagogy and my personal students have validated this statistic with their high level of focus and attention to detail.

Now I think the real question is, do I beat them over the head with a ruler to get them to play so well? Absolutely not! As a violin student growing up, I knew violin playing immediately became not-so-fun if I knew my lesson included being scolded too harshly, or other forms of negative reinforcement. I simply inspire my students to be the best they can be, and to carry those skills with them in all aspects of their life….and to make some awesome music in the process!

I've been taking lessons for only a few weeks now and so far micah has really helped me. I play clarinet in in hs band, and so violin is a new instrument I wanted to pick up and learn. I quickly found out that violin is tricky to learn on your own, but he was able to give me some great tips for painless calm playing techniques..would definitely recommend!

Micah was very dedicated to teaching Caitlin and Kelsey, our 2 daughters (9 and 11). He was very thoughtful accommodating of our busy schedule, since both girls also play soccer and had to frequently move lessons around. Honestly, I was afraid the girls would have to chose one or the other, but Micah was understanding of our situation, and found a way to work with us. I would say he has a very keen sense of professionalism and has gently encouraged my girls to practice at least 10-15 minutes every single day, and patiently understands that they have other activities in their day.

Micah taught our daughter Bailey for 2 years and he was the best teacher we'd ever had. As her mother, he allowed me to sit in during her weekly lessons so I could remember the concepts they'd practice to help her reinforce this during the week. I immediately noticed the change in Bailey's behavior outside of music. She was enthusiastic about studying for her math problems, saying Micah had taught her ways to turn tedious tasks/chores into enjoyable game. Currently she is now an honors student and I can only thank her music teacher for influencing her so positively. He's very professional, and always made lessons fun and engaging for her. Bailey looked forward to each lessons and is now principle chair in her high school orchestra.

Kelly M.

Acworth, GA

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.
