"Whether students desire to study music in college or play professionally, or are just exploring a fun and enriching hobby, our goal is for each student to experience the joy that comes with making music and growing in skill over time and practice, which will benefit them for a lifetime."

Music Education for All Ages, All Levels

Whether your rocker is only thinking about picking up a guitar, or has played for years, you need proven teachers and classes to nurture their love of music and help them build practice guitar skills for a lifetime.

Our expert and experienced coaches are chosen for their warmth, patience and inspiration. Students are guided from holding a guitar for beginners, to advanced scales and music school prep for advanced students.

As students progress, they take the stage and work together to create memorable shows. In fact, last year we held more than fifty student events across the city.

We Look Forward to Welcoming You

The NYC Guitar School Community is an environment which supports each student in being their best. Whether a student is honing their skills in private lessons, in group classes, in rock bands or camps…or is cheering on the other bands…or taking advantage of our open mics and student showcases…you will find that your child is surrounded by positive people who are growing as musicians and as people.

In fact, many of our students end up playing in bands on their own, outside the school.
