Georgia Pick and Bow Traditional Music  School, Inc.

Georgia Pick and Bow preserves Appalachian music by offering affordable instruction to students in grades 4 through 12 in Lumpkin County.   We offer a sliding tuition scale so everyone can afford to learn – they just have to put in the practice.  Our classes are fun.  We learn the old songs and sing together!  We are a 501 (c) (3) organization.
