Micah Priest fell in love with music at a very early age. She began her journey as a musician playing the piano and hand bells in elementary school. Following her training in piano she found herself swept away in classical music’s complexity and ability to stir up emotion. Growing up in her Southern Gospel church in Decatur, Alabama; Micah witnessed the power of music to unite, heal, and uplift her community. She began her study of wind instruments in middle school with the Oboe, Alto Saxophone, and Clarinet. Supported by her father, Bishop N. Priest, Micah excelled in every instrument she encountered along with her powerhouse voice. She received many awards and honors for her dedication, skill, and raw talent throughout her adolescent years. Finding her voice, Micah became a part of the UNA Collegiate Singers group and Chamber Choir. Classically trained in Jazz and Contemporary Arts, Micah has traveled and performed with many ensembles, artists, and bands across the nation as well as recorded music in studios. Music and Spirituality are the two most important aspects of Micah’s life, and it shows in her performances and instruction. Micah’s purpose and passion in life is to help others find joy and expression through the art of music. She has taught people from all walks of life. From 4 to 80, Micah has taught them all. Her teaching style is unlike any other in her ability in finding ways to make concepts and theory digestible at any skill level. Many of her students have even became teachers themselves; finding her technique easy to replicate. Music is an eternal soundscape of every moment in life. Whether sitting quietly or navigating this busy world, there’s always a melody, harmony, or rhythm waiting to be expressed.
