Micah is from Helena/Pelham, AL. He graduated from Pelham High in 2006, and he graduated from the University of Montevallo in 2010 with his degree in Music Education. While at Montevallo, Micah taught private lessons in guitar at the Community School of Music, which was very fulfilling for him as an educator. After moving to south Alabama with Brittany, he taught special needs students at a variety of ages and abilities, while furthering his education through graduate school at Kent State. Currently, Micah teaches private lessons, String Beans, Junior and Senior Guitar Ensembles, Orchestra, and Jazz Band!
Brittany Davis Simpson
Brittany is a Cullman, Alabama, native. However, she moved away as a teenager and graduated from Southside High School in Gadsden, Alabama, in 2005. Brittany attended college at the University of Montevallo and graduated first in her class in 2011 with a Bachelor of Music Education degree. After graduation, Brittany accepted a position as the K-12 music teacher and band director for Kinston School in south Alabama. While in that position for two years, she reinstated the music program that had been on hiatus for over a decade, including the marching band program, concert band program, elementary music program, and various other arts classes. Currently, Brittany teaches preschool and elementary music classes, private lessons, Junior Orchestra, and assists with the Senior Orchestra.
Micah and Brittany have been married for 10 years and have four beautiful children: Lydia, Hannah, Adam, and Ivy. They also have 2 rotten Basset Hound puppies, Penelope and Lucy-Belle. They currently reside in Cullman.
Sylus (Sy) is an apprentice who teaches all incoming students who are not quite ready for the intensity (or cost!) of Micah or Brittany. He has years of experience on violin, piano, and guitar. Sy is an absolute treasure of a person! Funny, polite, respectful, courteous, down-to-earth, always a "can do" attitude, and of course an amazing musician! Before taking lessons with Micah and participating in various ensembles and groups at Seed-Harvest, Sy was a member of the Decatur Youth Symphony. There, he served as both a performer and a teacher. He currently heads our "Interest Gauge" program, where he helps young students find their musical identity through listening, creating, and performing. Sy will attend Wallace State in the Fall of 2021 to pursue a degree in psychology, but also to study music more thoroughly in a collegiate atmosphere. He was awarded one of the highest musical scholarships possible to attend Wallace. We're very proud of him!
Fun idea - Ask Sy to teach your child's lesson in a funny accent sometime. They will love it!!!
