I have had an amazing experience with David. He has taken the time to truly get to know me and has set up our sessions based on what my goals are. He took his time to really understand what I needed to take my skills to a higher level. I feel that I was able to open up to him with total confidence and trust. I feel that he takes his time to really understand his students and mold his sessions to the needs of his students. I honestly feel that I have found a mentor who I will be reaching out to for all my needs.

Author and Motivator, Joyce Rennolds says...Phenomenal Results!

David, I am grateful to you for encouraging me to give up old beliefs about 'not being able to sing'. Since I am a Motivational Speaker and a New Thought Minister and teach an 'I can' attitude it never occurred to me to apply that idea to my singing voice. The results have been phenomenal. Thanks to your wonderful style of teaching I am now singing with confidence and poise in my church services. For my own pleasure I am becoming better and better at singing those wonderful Broadway tunes. Thank you for your encouragement, your professionalism, your unique style and your loving patience to work so diligently with me. You are the BEST!

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.
