We are very excited for the Kirkwood Wine Stroll this Friday! We have two Guitar Shed ensembles performing – The Bobcats and Cosmik Debris.

Check out the Wine Stroll website for more info and we hope to see you there!

The Fall Student Showcase is next month! This showcase will be held again at Waller’s Coffee Shop in Decatur and will feature many of our talented students and bands.

To register for the showcase, please talk with your teacher and then sign-up through the student portal. Please contact the front desk if you have any questions!

Thanks to everyone who came out to ShedFest! ShedFest was held at a great new Atlanta music venue, The Garden Club at Wild Heaven West End, with music inside The Garden Club and the artist market outside in the Wild Heaven lawn area. The music lineup featured four great local bands: Voodoo Visionary, Casual Cadenza, Rujen, and The Norm. There was a little something for everybody with genres spanning from indie to rock to hip-hop to funk!

We look forward to the continual growth of this event for years to come! We raised $1000 for Lanta Gras this year, and we will continue our efforts through ShedFest to provide access to instruments and music lessons for kids in our community. You can donate to Lanta Gras year-round in support of this great initiative!

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.

Happy Thanksgiving!

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. 

Thank you all for participating in our Kids Winter Recital at City Winery! Click here to view the photo gallery where you can download and purchase photos. Big thanks to Addison Hill for capturing some excellent moments. We’re very proud of all our kiddos and all of the hard work they put in!
