Those who can, teach.

I teach guitar and coach singers, songwriters and performers at Maple Street Guitars in Atlanta and at home in Kirkwood. I began teaching guitar in 1978 at Ken Stanton Music in Marietta, Georgia, my hometown. I have a degree in Classical Guitar Performance from Georgia State University where I studied with John Sutherland, a student of Andres Segovia.

I organize bi-annual Master Classes for my students, and guests have included Amy Ray, Emily Saliers, Michelle Malone, Sonia Leigh, Girlyman, and John McCutcheon.

The last Saturday of every month I hold an informal guitar get-together for my students and their friends where we workshop songwriters’ new songs, jam, perform and talk music theory, guitars, and snack on guacamole, salsa and chips from La Fonda.

If you’d like to study with me, contact me via email: bucky@buckymotter.com

I update my schedule here.

Masterclass With Emily Saliers August 5, 2018

Join us for a Masterclass with Emily Saliers Sunday, August 5 from 2:15-5:15pm. If you would like to perform or just attend, please contact Bucky at bucky@buckymotter.com for more details on the in-town location. Those performing must audition either privately or on July 29 from 1:00-3:00 at Bucky’s place.

The cost is $35 per person.

There will be time for Q&A as well as meet and greet. Emily will share a few songs with us as well. The Masterclass is always a supportive and friendly environment. Meet some of your peers and listen to some great music from covers to students’ original songs.

This is Emily’s third Masterclass with us. She’s been very gracious over the years to take time out of her bust tour schedule to come and visit with us. Hope you can make it!
