From Our Website

Tuesday-Saturday from 12-5. All transactions for accessories (strings, picks, etc.) must be done over the phone (credit card) or online (PayPal or Venmo) and can be picked up at the front door. All other shopping is by appointment only and can be arranged over the phone or via email, as well. If you need to drop off or pickup an instrument from our repair shop please call ahead. Since safety & health is our primary concern, our front door will be locked during these hours, so please call or email before coming.


Sylvan Music is located in Santa Cruz, California, a sunny surf-town one-hour south of San Francisco - in the same neck of the woods as some of the world's most famous acoustic instrument crafters. We specialize in high-quality instruments, both electric and acoustic, that were designed to give the player a tool for musical expression, and a lifetime of fulfillment. The instruments we offer stand headstocks above the competition, both in quality and in price performance. We have taken years of cumulative experience and searched all corners of the globe to find the luthiers (master instrument builders) making outstanding instruments.


Sylvan Music has some of the finest music teachers in Santa Cruz! Below is a list of our in-store teachers and some other local teachers teaching outside of Sylvan Music. Time to pick up that old guitar and come in for a lesson! Need an instrument, but not ready to commit yet? Check out our Instrument Rentals.
