Introducing our newest teacher at Guitar Shed, George Kotler-Wallace. George is an expert at all things that slide on the string! George teaches pedal steel, lap steel, guitar, banjo, ukulele, and bass.
We’ve been looking to offer pedal steel lessons for a long time, and are glad to have George join our faculty! He has availability on Friday afternoons from 4:00-7:00 pm starting 8/12. Call us today to reserve your spot!
Camp Woodshed was so much fun this year! Thanks to all the Camp Woodshedders, to Sean McMorris and Brandon Marsolo for leading the bands, and to the parents for enrolling your kids and for coming out to support at their final concert.
Week 2 featured campers ages 12 – 16 where they had the opportunity to take workshops on piano extended techniques, guitar pedals, recording and production, and an instrument show & tell. They learned and performed Sunflower by Post Malone, Sky Full of Stars by Coldplay, and Come As You Are by Nirvana.

It has been a busy month at Guitar Shed with two packed recitals! Our Kids, Tweens, and Teens all had some very memorable performances. I am continually impressed by the creativity, talent, and emotion on display at our recitals.
Students prepared songs old and new as well as songs of their own. Our teachers worked diligently to prepare accompaniments and made sure that everything ran smoothly on stage. Parents and grandparents sat nervously in the audience and held back tears of pride. We were fortunate to perform at two of the finest music venues in Atlanta to a full house. Thank you, everyone, for your participation and support!
Looking ahead, we will be closed for a few holiday breaks so please check the calendar below.

This is a free event and open to the public, so feel free to invite friends and family to see you perform! We will have amps, microphones and a keyboard available. Please bring your instrument with you (unless you are playing piano) and arrive at least 15 min. before your set time. Unfortunately, this performance is not open to drummers due to the size of the restaurant. Space is limited so sign up today to guarantee your spot.
P.S. We just created a private facebook group, “Guitar Shedders” for all of current and former Guitar Shed students that you can request to join here. The purpose of this group is to help us connect with each other in the local music community. If you’re looking to jam, sell an instrument or want to talk about the candy offerings in the lobby feel free to post it here! Open to adult students and parents.
The Lanta Gras Music Program (LGMP):LGMP provides private music lesson scholarships for one year. Lessons begin with one 30-minute lesson per week (summer and holiday weeks not included). The lessons are held at Guitar Shed, 1610 Hosea L Williams Dr NE, 30317. Students and their parent / guardians are responsible for transportation to/from these free lessons. Once awarded a scholarship, students will contact Guitar Shed to coordinate their weekly lesson schedule and to choose from one of the following instruments: Drums, Guitar, Violin, Bass, Piano, Ukulele, Banjo, Mandolin and Voice.
Eligibility and Priority: Student eligibility is extended to children who attend public school in the Jackson Cluster and/or reside in the NPU-O neighborhoods of Kirkwood, East Lake and Edgewood — as well as parents/guardians who are employed within this NPU-O zone in the following professions: schools (pre-K through 12), first responders (Police, Fire and Rescue) and military service. Our candidate age group is 4th-12th grade students, but younger candidates may be considered. Applying for this scholarship is a commitment to attend weekly lessons and an agreement to march with us in our annual “Lanta Gras” parade, which is held in Kirkwood on the last Saturday in January. Happy Lanta Gras!
Lanta Gras is a Mardi Gras Parade with purpose. Our mission is to build community and provide opportunities for children through the common bond of music. Please email questions to [email protected]
