The Atlanta Guitar Guild is a 501(c)3 non-profit arts organization. The mission of the Atlanta Guitar Guild is to promote and support the artistic performance of music on guitar in all of its stylistic variety. The Atlanta Guitar Guild is dedicated to the presentation of the guitar as a unique vehicle for the artistic expression of Atlanta’s diverse musical culture. As a non-profit organization of Atlanta area guitarists, enthusiasts and students, the Guild exists to facilitate all aspects of the study, performance and appreciation of the guitar and its music. In pursuit of these goals, the Guild sees its mission in three broad areas:
Education: The Guild seeks to further the study of the guitar and its music through education and outreach. In order to facilitate student success, the Guild will sponsor a number of educational opportunities, including orchestra, chamber, student recitals, and master-classes. Additionally, the Guild seeks to promote the study of the guitar in middle and high schools with curricula that align with the Georgia Performance Standards for current music education programs for wind band, orchestra, jazz band and choir.
Appreciation: The Guild will sponsor concerts by professional guitarists. Events will be open to the public at large. Venues and events will be selected and presented in a way that heightens musical expression and grows the audience for similar events.
Professional Development: The Guild seeks to develop and sustain Atlanta’s existing professional guitarists through concert promotion, recognition of excellence (teaching, performing, recording, etc.) and an online teacher directory.
The Atlanta Guitar Guild is a community of Atlanta guitarists, teachers, students and music lovers, and as such, it reflects the interests of its members and contributors.
