ROCK BAND

Rehearse, rock, and perform. Includes weekly 1.5 hour rehearsals in a fully equipped Midtown music studio with an expert coach in preparation for a professional showcase at a New York City club. Studio to stage! Grow as a person and a musician in this incredible rock band experience. Bands are grouped by age, level, and musical instrument. Bands typically fall into age groups 8-11, 12-14, & 15-17 yrs.

Spots available for guitarists, bassists, drummers, vocalists and keyboard players with some experience on their instrument.

COLLABORATIVE SONGWRITING

Collaborative Songwriting Band is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for vocalists and instrumental writers of all styles to tap into their creative minds, collaborate with their peers, and further develop their unique talents in a band just for songwriters. In this class students will learn about a variety of songwriting techniques such as concept writing, improvisation, rhyme scheme, song form, and so much more, all while workshopping ideas in a supportive environment of fellow writers. Bands will then collaborate to write and perform their own original songs! Bands are grouped by age, level and instrument and typically fall into age groups 12-14, & 15-17 yrs.

Spots available for guitarists, bassists, drummers, vocalists and keyboard players with some experience writing original songs and playing their instrument.

CUSTOM BAND

You and your bandmates select, rehearse, and arrange songs under the guidance of an expert instructor, and work as a team toward a performance on stage at a New York City nightclub.

Bands rehearse for two hours, once a week and have the opportunity to perform in 4 showcases a year! Many custom bands play together for years, and even play shows beyond NYCGS!  Most custom bands meet in Rock Band 101, Theme Band or Jam classes–but work groups, families, friends and any other group can form a custom band. 

If you have a group and are interested in joining our custom band program, please click below to register for one of the available times. If none of the available times work with your band’s schedules please email and we will do our best to set you up with a coach at a time that works with your schedules. 

Are you an individual player looking for a band? Join a 101 or Theme band and start connecting with the community! Play in weekly jams and let the Jam Coach know you are looking for a band. Are you a band looking for a player? Let us know!

Winter 2020 Showcase

Details and FAQ's

Rehearsals will take place in midtown at Funkadelic Studios – 209 W 40th St 5th Floor, New York, NY 10018

You will find that the NYC Guitar School Community is an environment which supports you in being your best. Whether you are honing your skills in private lessons or in our lead guitar, vocal or other classes…or when you are cheering on the other bands…or taking advantage of our open mics and student showcases…you will find that you are surrounded by positive people who are growing as musicians and as people. In fact, many of your classmates on stage will have started as Absolute Beginners. And some of your classmates will end up playing in bands on their own, outside the school. Does this sound like it might be the right place for you? Then…it probably is!

Our mission is Coaching Personal Greatness One Lesson At A Time. We believe that each of us is capable of more. By learning and improving in music, we not only experience the fun, connection and excitement of playing, but we live one of life’s greatest lessons, “what you put in is what you get out.” Playing music helps us all be calmer, have better focus, be better at accomplishing great things over time. Also, playing guitar is super fun!

No problem! You can drop or change bands after each show. Because we take so much time matching bands, we require 30 days notice for a drop or day/time change. To protect the quality of the band experience, there are no drops or changes available in the 7 weeks before a show.

Ex: You sign up for a Fall band but you want to take a break or try a different band AFTER the Nov 14th show. Just let us know by October 14th that you will be dropping your band or are interested in switching to a different band so we can open up your spot to new students for the Winter Session and get you set up with your new band. If you want to drop or change your band BEFORE the Nov 14 show you would need to let us know by Sept 27. You will only be charged for the rehearsals you have attended.

September 15 – 21

On the 15th of each month. Your first month’s tuition is charged at sign-up and the next charge will run October 15th, 2022. If we don’t have your card on file, we will call you in September to set up the recurring charge.

A $100 deposit is required to hold your spot. This will be credited to your first month’s payment once we match you with a band. In the unfortunate and unlikely event that we are unable to match you with a band your deposit will be fully refunded.

Average is 4 classes a month. Shows count as a weekly class. December 15-Jan 15 payment is pro-rated to $114.50 (two sessions only).

We match students by age and level. We even try to match musical interest as much as possible. Bands typically fall into age groups 8-11, 12-14 and 15-17.

We will work hard to move you to a day/time that works! If we aren’t able to, you will be charged only for rehearsals you have attended.
