Our Story

In September of 2003 Alan & Debby Simcoe opened Village Music in historical Lynwood Center on Bainbridge Island. It started as a show place for the custom guitars, ukuleles, and stringed instruments built by Alan Simcoe, and has grown into the local source for instruments, classical guitars, ukuleles, parts & repair, and teaching.

ALAN SIMCOE

Maker of fine classical guitars in the Hauser/Torres tradition. 

Since 1993 Alan Simcoe has crafted handmade classical instruments built with the finest materials. Although his professional output includes many modern and historical designs, he specializes in nylon-stringed guitars in the Hauser/Torres tradition.  His formal schooling includes a B.Mus. degree in classical guitar performance.  An accomplished player, Alan applies his music sensibilities to the design, building and voicing of his instruments.
