I accept only flutists for Music Performance lessons. There is a special art to performing well and making a connection with your audience. I can instruct you on how to bring your performance to the next level. We will talk about your playing, your movement, and even some speaking so that you feel confident and prepared when you step foot on that stage! This is great for overcoming stage fright, anxiety, and tension if you have an audition, recital, or other performance coming up.

About Kelly M.

I'm a flutist and flute instructor in the North Atlanta area. My home studio is in Acworth (near Woodstock), Georgia where I teach flute lessons. I play Principal Flute and am the Executive Director of the Alpharetta Symphony Orchestra.


Lessons:
My teaching philosophy is grounded in the idea that you don't have to be perfect, you just have to try. Each one of us has something unique hidden inside waiting to be expressed through music and my job is to draw that out and give you the confidence to share it with the world. With each student I hope to ignite a spark of passion and curiosity for music to carry with you throughout your lifetime.

I have been teaching since 2005 to students of all ages and levels. I currently have students all across the US and have taught online as far away as Hawaii, Italy, and India! Whether your goal is to start a new instrument, gain confidence in your playing, improve your current skills, make first chair in band, perfect a solo, make All-State, win a competition, or audition for college, I will guide you and help you reach your goals.


About:
Kelly Meholic grew up in beautiful Sarasota, Florida where she began taking flute lessons at the age of 12 with Betsy Hudson-Traba, principal of the Sarasota Orchestra. After deciding to pursue music as a career, she earned her Bachelor of Music degree in flute performance from Florida State University as a student of Eva Amsler. She continued her studies in Lugano, Switzerland where she studied under Mario Ancillotti, Stefano Parrino, and Giovanni Crola, receiving her Master of Music degree in flute performance. She has played with the Lugano Chamber Orchestra, Sarasota Orchestra, Sarasota Ballet Orchestra, Southwest Florida Symphony Orchestra, and Gwinnett Symphony. Kelly currently lives in Acworth, Georgia where she teaches flute lessons in her home studio and online.  She also plays Principal Flute and is the Executive Director of the Alpharetta Symphony Orchestra.  Kelly and her husband, Vance, have 3 cats and a Giant Schnauzer/Lab mix.  When she is not feeding her zoo, she enjoys volunteering at church, reading, listening to podcasts, and cleaning.

Ms. Kelly is the best teacher ever! She is so kind, fun, and understanding. I am a busy sophomore in high school with a lot to do, but she always has something fun for me to learn/ play. I like to play more for enjoyment (although she did help me make it to my high school's Symphonic Band) , and I like that Ms. Kelly asks me to my best, but doesn't put pressure on me on things I don't want to do. I'm so happy to have such a nice and talented teacher. She is also super-responsible with sending me lesson notes, as well as keeping up with my schedule. Also, she has a very nice personal relationship to me as a person, not just as a student.

Kelly was absolutely amazing. She worked well with my daughter and was very encouraging. She also taught me many things I didn't know so that I could help my daughter along between lessons. Unfortunately, my daughter lost interest in flute altogether. If she was still into it, we would be taking more lessons with Kelly.

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.

I found Kelly to be a total professional in teaching. Prompt, educated and well versed in the principals of the flute.
She also was competent in the composition I had requested insight on, the Poulenc Sonata for flute, which is not an easy piece to play.
If you are intermediate to early advanced you will not go wrong or left wanting.
Highly recommend for beginner to early advanced level teaching.
