Our Story

Good Times Guitar has taught hundreds of students in Santa Barbara county. Founded by Andy White over 15 years ago, Good Times has always been about making music fun! Good Times has continually grown over the years. 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 2017-18 school year, Andy and Jade Granada are ready to take on a full schedule of  students! Register HERE.

We teach guitar, drums, bass, piano and ukulele! Good Times helps students realize their musical potential in a fun, safe environment. Music is fun and Good Times keeps it that way for their students. 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. Alternative. 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.

In case you’re wondering, yes, we have recently added ukulele and piano! We don’t teach classical piano, but many of our clients are interested in learning how to play piano and/or keyboard in a band. If you’re interested in learning chords and how to play rock or worship style keyboard, we can help!

We’ve been teaching drums and bass for quite a while! We LOVE helping our students learn the fundamentals of theory and live performance.

If you’re looking to find joy in music, come to Good Times and we’ll get you going!
