Welcome to Grand Central Music Online

My Name is Dan Ernst and along with my wife Kathy Ernst own Grand Central Music and Conservatory.

We are a true mom and pop, real brick and mortar music store in San Luis Obispo California.  We live, eat and breathe music and have the hands on experience to back it up.  Our goal is to have everyone who walks in to feel comfortable and welcome: and we have worked hard in our new location to bring a warm and relaxed atmosphere that’s fun and informative.  Because music is so dynamic we don’t intend to rest on our laurels here, but will always keep up with what’s going on in the music community.  Our lesson program can’t be beat and we are very proud of the quality of our instructors.  Along with our staff, Andy Morris and James Yerkes, who also bring years of experience that just can’t be bought.  So come by and meet our music family.  We know it won’t be long before you are family too and that’s something you can’t get online!

We make a point to compete with internet pricing. We stand behind every guitar we sell, and will continue to set up the action for you for free if purchased through our store.
With what we have to offer, why buy from Musician’s Friend?
