Not Just Guitar!

GCNW is dedicated to the teaching of all plucked instruments, and we offer a wide variety of instruments and playing styles to choose from.

Our core curriculum is centered around standard guitar in one of three styles – Classical, Acoustic and Electric, each requiring a different and dedicated approach. We're also committed to Early Childhood guitar and offer two ways for kids to get started, GFC and Suzuki Method. Among our more recent offerings include Lute/Early Plucked Instruments, Banjo and Ukulele.

Both of our Early Childhood Guitar programs are centered around the Suzuki Guitar method.

GFC (Guitar for Children) is for kids who are old enough to learn without the help of a dedicated home teacher and is on the more traditional side, but still includes the best elements of Suzuki (repertoire, CDs, games). Our Suzuki Guitar program follows an authentic methodology which includes private lessons, group lessons, and active parental involvement

Our specialty is in providing conservatory-class music education for you or your child in the comfort of your own home. If you don't require this convenience, we have a small number of private studios available.


  • "My daughter really loves her teacher. We've seen a huge improvement in her skills since she began studying classical guitar, and having the teacher come to our home makes it so much easier manage the kids activities."

  • "My child really loves guitar and her teacher is very skilled, dedicated and supportive of her playing. We really can't believe how far she has come in the past 5 years."
