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 am a very patient person and in my teaching I try to keep the atmosphere positive and encouraging. I have taught beginning to advanced private flute lessons to childre
n and adults in person and online all across the country including Hawaii and even as far away as Italy. 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 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!

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

About Carolyn
Sharing my love of music and teaching others is my passion. I began teaching piano and harp lessons when I was in high school. After earning two degrees in music performance at the University of Arizona, I continued my love of teaching by working as the Artistic Director of the Urban Youth Harp Ensemble for 7 years. There I taught harp lessons to hundreds of students, and tried to make music fun and accessible to everyone regardless of their background. I believe that students learn best when the teacher is able to balance hard work and discipline with joy, humor, and a caring relationship wit
h each student.
