Our Story

Good Times Guitar has taught hundreds of students in Santa Barbara county. Founded by Andy White in 2000, Good Times has always been about making music fun.

We teach guitar, drums, bass, piano, vocals and ukulele! Good Times helps students realize their musical potential in a fun, safe environment. You can check out the movies for yourself to see the students shine. We specialize in helping you learn the exact music that YOU like.

Rock. Folk. Worship. Blues. We teach it all!

What can we teach in guitar lessons? Good question! We teach theory, soloing, chords, composing, recording, and live performance. We’re happy to teach both acoustic and electric students ranging from beginners to very advanced.

We’ve been teaching drums and bass for quite a while! We love helping our students learn the fundamentals of theory and live performance. We specialize in giving students the tools they need to play confidently with a band.

Yes, we do teach ukulele and piano! Many of our students are interested in learning how to play piano or keyboard in a band. If you’re interested in learning chords and how to play rock or worship style keyboard, we can help!

In our tenure, several talented teachers have joined the team, including Dan Bos, Dave Granada, Matt Knoles and Jade Granada. All the teachers have played with local bands and recorded professional albums.

For the 2019-2020 school year, Andy White and Jade Granada are ready to take on a full schedule of students! We’re also excited to add Abby White to our teaching team! Register HERE.

If you’re looking to find joy in music, come to Good Times!
