NYC Guitar School is one of America’s largest music schools with 3,000 students and 50 teachers, including campers in NYC’s longest running rock music day camp. Students love our camp because they make friends, learn new skills, make music and play a great show. But our ultimate mission is not teaching music. Our mission is “Coaching Personal Greatness One Lesson At A Time” and we know that our summer program is successful when our campers grow in confidence, skill and musical and social resilience.

Most of our summer coaches are continuing NYCGS teachers, however we have limited openings for full summer in-person band coaches who are new to our school.

Ideal applicants will have experience playing in, leading, or coaching bands, as well as experience teaching, working with kids, being a camp counselor, etc., and will have a degree in music or education or other related field or will be actively engaged in studying or working in these fields.

This is also a good opportunity to get to know our school (and for us to get to know you) for regular teaching opportunities. (Many of our regular teachers began with us as summer camp teachers).

Join our team as a Summer Band Coach!

  • Do you have a mission to help others?
  • Are you super reliable?

Help people reach their musical dreams!

  • Belong to an incredible community of students & staff!

We want to meet YOU.  We are interviewing for this position in April/May 2023.
