Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Micah Claffey
Music has been the compass of my life. I began playing the cello at the age of eight and never looked back. I was born and raised in Boise, Idaho and moved to Nashville, Tennessee in 2004 to attend Vanderbilt University to pursue my Bachelor of Music degree. I received my Masters degree in cello performance from Rice University in Houston, Texas. I moved back to Boise in 2010 and I have been teaching and performing here ever since. I became the Director of Classical Music at Idaho Fine Arts Academy when the school started in 2014. Teaching music to my students at Idaho Fine Arts Academy has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.
