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

Online lessons are exactly the same format as in-person private lessons with the exact same teachers — only you get to play from the comfort of your own home. Instruction is real-time and all you need is your guitar, Internet connection, and a computer or a mobile device.

Private lessons are 30 or 45 minutes long.

You will need a guitar, a computer (equipped with a camera and a microphone) or even a phone, and an Internet connection!

No, it’s super easy! After you schedule your lesson, we will email you a link for the lesson. Just save that email, and then click the link before the lesson begins.

(We also recommend bookmarking the link so that it is easily accessible!)

This is the number one question we get asked by new students. Meeting a teacher and starting to learn guitar online can be both exciting and—depending on how much experience you have with taking lessons online—a bit daunting. But we’ll help you get ready step by step. When you sign up, we’ll send you a link for a test meeting to make sure that your equipment is ready for your lesson. If you need to download an app or an extension, you’ll be prompted to do so. Just follow the prompts!

And of course, if you have any questions we are standing by to help at 646-485-7244 or via email us at info@nycguitarschool.com.

Sure! First, make sure that your equipment is ready for your lesson by going to a test meeting here. If you need to download an app or an extension, you’ll be prompted to do so. Just follow the prompts! If you have ANY QUESTIONS at all, visit FAQs here or call us at 646-485-7244 or email us at info@nycguitarschool.com. We would LOVE to help you!

Oh, and of course you don’t want your first lesson to be interrupted by technical issues! Check your lesson time and give yourself some extra time before your first lesson to make sure that your internet signal is strong and that your video and microphone are working. Watch this fun video for a step by step checklist to make sure that you are totally ready!
