Natalie McGee Filmore grew up in the Dunwoody School for the Arts program and began studying voice at the age of 7 with Jane Hendrix. She was also enrolled in piano, acting classes, import groups, and was a music camp counselor on many an occasion here at DSA and at other locations around Atlanta.
Natalie's experiences performing in Atlanta throughout her childhood and young adulthood led to life-long friendships, personal development, and a love and appreciation for the simple beauty of a melody line. The study of music also enabled Natalie to become Georgia Tech's first vocal music scholar (Opera). Natalie is truly honored to be on staff at DSA to share her knowledge of and love for music with others. Natalie has a talent for connecting with and encouraging children and truly loves to teach!
