OUR MISSION


Preserving and promoting the traditional music of our region of Appalachia by leading youngsters to play and sing in the old-time and bluegrass traditions.



​Professional Teaching


Students can join Pick and Bow in 4th grade.   They can continue until they graduate.


Our professional instructors teach 20 lessons and a one-week summer camp every year.


We teach guitar, fiddle, mandolin, banjo and more. Students learn the old songs, sing and jam  together every lesson.  Kids love it!



​Sliding-Scale Tuition


We offer affordable instruction to students in Lumpkin County by using a sliding scale.    


We offer a sliding tuition scale so everyone can afford to learn – they just have to put in the practice.
