About Our Teachers

In 2004, New York City Guitar School consisted of a single room in the Recording and Rehearsal Arts Building on West 30th Street in Manhattan. 17 years later, we have thousands of students around the world and 50+ expert teachers.

NYC Guitar School teachers came from around the globe to New York City to master and share their craft. Their world-class skills, performing experience and education are matched by a passion for helping their students grow.

Our teachers come from reputable institutions such as the Berklee College of Music, Manhattan School of Music, Mannes School of Music, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Queensland Conservatorium, and many more.

Details and FAQ's

Absolutely. Our step-by-step curriculum is based around our best-selling Guitar For Absolute Beginners book. You’re supported with clear video warm-ups and practice guides, and most importantly with small group live-online classes with expert teachers. 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

After your trial month, the NYC Guitar School Class Membership is $129/month or $1,200 a year. Yes, we know we are more expensive than other online guitar options–but this is because we have lots of live small group with real, live teachers who are among the best teachers in the world (and they are paid more than our competitors.) If you try out our classes, we think you’ll realize that the value you receive is incredible.

We recommend that you schedule a free one-on-one “Ready-Set-Play” video evaluation and orientation after you sign up for your trial—it just takes one click. But some students have already looked at our classes and are ready to just start jumping in. That’s OK, too!  Our teachers are warm and friendly, and exploring different classes and teachers is part of the fun of joining our school.

At the end of your $59 trial month, your card will automatically run for $129/month – but don’t worry, you can stop at any time! We also have an annual membership option for $1200, a 23% discount! Click here to upgrade to the annual membership, or give us a call at 646-485-7244.

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!

Nope! Back when our founder was starting the school, people used to make fun of him. “Dan,” they’d say “don’t you think your mission should maybe be to, you know, teach guitar? What are you trying to do, change the world? You only have 20 students!”  Now we have over 1,000 students, because it turns out that lots of people feel greatness inside of themselves that they want express. There are lots of ways for us to become more of the person we want to be–and learning to play a beautiful chord or a beautiful song is one of them.
