Thousands of complete beginners learned to play with us, and you can, too.

Our classes are step-by-step and song-by-song with an expert coach.  Step-by-step means that new material is presented in a broken down, sequential manner with small, achievable steps. Song-by-song means that we teach using real songs, which make our classes fun and motivating. And an expert coach means that our teachers are more than highly proficient musicians–they are skilled at explaining and motivating students to reach understanding and

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!

NYCGS is AMAZING! The culture of acceptance, encouragement and mutual respect starts at the top and runs all the way to the youngest students. Great teachers and super supportive of students. They have come up with many creative solutions for students during recent restrictions on in person activities and kept the community intact and engaged. Thank you!

This is the most amazing place to begin or continue on a musical journey. Every one from the teachers, to the managers, to the desk assistants is vested in helping each student progress and achieve musical greatness! Seriously, I've improved so much and am now venturing into performing at neighborhood open mics. I've been taking the guitar ensemble class with Kyle for a couple of years and it is the best. I look forward to our student showcases and performing with my class band. I started my journey later in life but it's the best decision I ever made. The Brooklyn Guitar School has helped me achieve a dream. Music is now a big part of my life and it's thanks to the Brooklyn Guitar School!

NYC Guitar School is a warm, welcoming community of highly effective and friendly teachers. Particularly outstanding is Suke Cerulo, for the Lead Guitar series, the Blues Guitar classes, and the new and fantastic Fundamentals of Music series. No matter how long you've been playing, the Fundamentals series will increase your confidence and ability to think and play music independently, rather than rely on apps or books. Classes at NYCGS are an investment in your current and future happiness!
