Clay Kirkland hails from Macon, Georgia. He got into teaching music to help people live their dreams of making music. When he is not at Swallow Hill, you can find him on the Kirkland Brothers Farm, walking through “Clay’s Eighty Acres” of wooded acreage, lake, and a creek. Wherever he may be, he is working on making plans for a harmonica and music school and meditation retreat. When he is not teaching or performing, you can find him developing a community garden behind the apartment building where he lives, or in the vegetable gardens and fruit orchards at the farm.

General Info & Policies
Recurring students meet with their teachers weekly. Recurring lessons are great for students looking for a consistent and reliable schedule, and they are billed on a monthly basis. Students may keep their regular lesson time slot as long as the teacher is available and the monthly payments are made on time.
*An additional $1 off per half-hour discount is available for recurring lesson students who opt in to auto-payments.
