suzuki guitar!

In existence since 1983, the Longay Conservatory of Guitar is dedicated to raising the potential of children through the Suzuki approach to music education. Our experience demonstrates that all children may achieve very high levels of musical ability in an enriched and motivating environment and that music and the arts cultivate a happier, more capable individual.

It's a wonder to see my son developing his own love of music. It has a positive influence that transfers to the other areas in his life. The positive reinforcement to his self-esteem from this program is immeasurable.

— Parent, R. Milton, Fremont

Students from 3 to 17 years old study music and the classical guitar with active family support. Curriculum activities include music skills, theory, sight-reading and instrumental technique. Weekly private lessons are enhanced by group lessons which teach performance and ensemble skills.



I have learned a lot about myself as well as my children and feel the guitar helped my daughter develop higher self-esteem and confidence.

— Parent, A. Schultz, Los Gatos

The elegant and rewarding discipline of music stands out as a powerful aid in directing them towards a healthy, happy and responsible adulthood."
