With two locations we cater to families throughout the Bay Area from San Jose all the way up to San Francisco!
Our main goal with The California Conservatory of Guitar is to provide Bay Area families with exemplary guitar education. We believe that all students have great potential, which can be reached when they are placed in the right environment. The school was formed to supply that: an inspiring place to learn music through the classical guitar.
Benefits of Music
The most important benefit of a music education is the creative and expressive outlet it allows a student, but there are many others that are interesting!
Numerous studies have shown that learning to play an instrument contributes significantly to cognitive development. Students in study groups displayed a higher IQ and up to 20% improvements in standardized testing.
"The theory of relativity occurred to me by intuition, and music is the driving force behind this intuition. My parents had me study the violin from the time I was six. My new discovery is the result of musical perception." - Einstein
To play music at a high level, one needs to practice everyday. Students who constantly prepare well for their classes and performances develop a strong sense of work ethic, as well as a strong sense of commitment. When they see the positive fruits of their labor from reassuring comments in the lessons and at the recitals, their confidence grows! Besides guitar lessons are fun - an added bonus!
Music is Social
We have grown a community of well over 160 students and families in the San Francisco Bay Area that benefit from our exemplary guitar instruction. Music is a social phenomenon, and it is a shame that most student's experience with music is going to a weekly private class, practicing at home, and then going back to the private class. At CCG students practice with their parents at home (depending on their age), attend group classes and ensembles, where they can play guitar with other kids, and participate in recitals and performance at the school.
Our Santa Clara location has easy access from Central Expressway and Highway 101, and our Redwood City studio is conveniently located on Woodside Rd. between the 101 and 280.
Guitar students come to us from San Jose, Santa Clara, Sunnyvale, Woodside, Atherton, Redwood City and throughout the Bay Area for guitar lessons taught by a well-educated, experienced faculty.
