New Program alert: “Band Practice”

We’re starting a brand new program and we think you’ll love it! It’s called “Band Practice” and it’s open to all intermediate and above students. This is an amazing opportunity to fine tune your musical abilities in a group setting. Each band will meet for a full hour every week and polish songs together. Over time, they’ll have a substantial set of tunes that are performance ready.

Speaking of performing, that’s exactly what they’ll do! Besides obvious school opportunities (like chapels and talent shows), each band will be given multiple opportunities to play gigs around town. Good Times will book concerts at local venues like SoHo, etc, and the bands will hit the stage!

This program is designed to accelerate student progress, make music more fun and save you money. The price will be just $115/month. We’ll plan to mostly meet 4x per month. If you miss a week here or there, no problem. The price is still $115/month. Occasionally, we’ll meet five times instead of four. Other months, we’ll skip a band practice due to a holiday, etc. It’s like Netflix – same price every month. The important thing is that you will want to BE in the band! We’ll be learning, having fun and playing shows. What could be better?

Although students will be in a small group setting (3-5 per band), individual attention will still be given. New skills, chords, scales and theory will be shown to each student as we work through the material. The program will run from September until the end of May.

Questions? Please don’t hesitate to ask!

We anticipate this program filling up quickly. Please register today to be sure your spot is secure! Register HERE.

**NOTE: If your student is still a beginner, we recommend sticking with regular lessons until basic skills are up to speed. Band Practice will be waiting for them when they’re good and ready! Register for lessons HERE. If you’re not sure if your student is ready, just ask! We’ll help you evaluate their readiness. 🙂

The Good Times Concert totally rocked! We’re so proud of all our students for doing a tremendous job. We had EIGHT different bands perform. Here’s a full video of our concert. Click HERE to watch! #GTconcert18

Good Times Drums

We really love teaching kids to rock on drums. Molly has put in a couple months of focused practice and it has really paid off! Way to go, kiddo!


Good Times Shines at Chili Roundup!

I asked several of our “Good Times” students to play some live music at Elmo’s Chili Roundup. They did a spectacular job! Practice pays off when you get to enjoy playing live music at a fun outdoor event!

Bass is Fun!

We love teaching students how to rock on guitar, drums and bass! We haven’t had as much demand for bass, but Calvin is quickly discovering how much FUN it is!

Caedon Selected for Church Band!

We love notes like this! Thanks to Caedon’s mom (Heidi) for sending it!

I just wanted to let you know that we’re signing Ariel up for guitar lessons with you once again, but Caedon is going to be working with a guy from our church’s worship team this year. So I wanted to say thank you for all that you all have done with bringing Caedon along so far, it’s been incredible and we’ve appreciated it so much. We look forward to seeing how Ariel is going to progress this year, and then her little brother in a year or two to come!

Good Times Alum Performs at the Lobero!

IMG_2359We are very proud of Braeden Biegert! He got his start with Good Times Guitar. We always knew he was a special talent that would go far. Well, he just recently rocked a full house at the Lobero Theater in Santa Barbara at the Brandon Heath concert. He did amazingly well. We really appreciated the way he thanked us before his performance! Thank you, Braeden! Keep up the great work!!


His band, Trip Aces, also includes another Good Times prodigy, bass player Brett Knowles.
