Guitarists & Friends of the Guitar

The Carmel Guitar Society promotes the classical guitar through education, recitals and gatherings.

Monterey was the first capital of Spanish California. The Spaniards brought the guitar with them, and it was probably the first European instrument played in California. From those humble beginnings the guitar has remained a dynamic force in the musical scene on the Monterey Peninsula.

If you share a passion for the classic guitar or just take pleasure from the music, please come join us -- you need not be a player.

CCGS oversees two grant-funded music programs within Monterey County:

  • The Guitar In The Schools teaches musical concepts to 4th and 5th graders through the guitar and curriculum.

  • The Healing Guitar fosters spiritual wellness to seniors through concert performances in hospices, convalescent homes, and hospitals.

Find out about membership benefits, or sign up to join the Carmel Guitar Society.
