The California Conservatory of Music
Lessons for all ages and levels

Formerly The California Conservatory of Guitar, we have provided the Bay Area with quality music education for more than six years! The school is committed to the idea that all students have great potential, which can be developed through a positive, motivational environment, consistent practice, and first-rate instruction. Our school offers a well-rounded, thought-out curriculum; experienced faculty; and a fun, educational atmosphere.

Come grow your love for music with us! Give us a call or sign up for a free introductory class.

The California Conservatory of Music offers private music lessons in guitar, piano, cello, violin, voice, and more. Many students supplement their private study with group classes, theory, and ensembles. We have locations in Redwood City and Santa Clara.

"My son has had a great experience with the California Conservatory of Music. He has developed a love for all kinds of music and discipline to move through challenging pieces. This discipline and work ethic have transferred to other areas of his life as well. The teachers have been fantastic in developing a well-rounded musician and making the process enjoyable."

"My kids have been taking lessons here since they were 2.5 and 5 years old. I was skeptical about starting music lessons so early, but I have come to appreciate the value of the Suzuki method as I've seen, now seven years later, the rewards in their musical ability, confidence, self-motivation, and love of music. We love the owners, Chris and Rob, and their dedication to excellence balanced with gentle motivation."
-Jacki R.
"We have three children taking lessons at the California Conservatory - ages 5, 7 and 10. Each child started in pre-school. It is truly amazing how they can work with children at such young ages and consistently teach them how to play so well. The program is amazing - individual lessons, group lessons, small group and large group performances, and parental involvement. The staff is talented, engaging, patient, and so wonderful."
