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.

Raffle Winner 2018

Based on 2017 costs, each student costs $174 per semester. 


Volunteers, the community raffle and many small dollar donations allow us to offer scholarships to all students.


We base the scholarships on "school lunch prices".  Student lunch prices are based on the reported income of our student's family.  There are three types of school lunch prices:  Normal, Reduced and Free.


Registration fees are as follows:


"free" =  we provide a scholarship of $144.00, a student pays only $30.


"reduced" =  we provide a scholarship of $114.00, a student pays only $60.


"normal" =  we provide a scholarship of $49.00, a student pays only $125.


Buying Raffle Tickets give you a chance to win a great prize and helps support students in our community.
