NYC Guitar School is one of America’s largest music schools with 2,000 students and over 50 teachers. Students love us because they learn to play guitar and make real connections with other great people. But our mission is not teaching guitar. Our mission is “Coaching Personal Greatness One Lesson At A Time.”
Join our team as Summer Camp Director!
For the past 15 years, NYC Guitar School has operated NYC’s largest rock band day camp. Campers (mostly teenagers) spend most of each two-week session rehearsing intensely with their small group bands and band coaches in preparation for a show in a NYC club with professional sound and lights. Group rehearsals are supplemented with instrument break-out learning, workshops and visits to other bands, as well as individual lessons.
The NYC Guitar School mission is “Coaching Personal Greatness One Lesson At A Time”. We love music and our teachers are excellent musicians, but we are clear that music is not the end goal; music is a path to helping kids gain confidence, resilience and discipline, and for learning to work together with and appreciate other people.
We strive to create an environment of respect, support, professionalism and achievement in which each camper grows towards their personal potential in order to contribute to the success of their band. One of the things we’re proudest of is that many of our campers form lasting friendships and even create bands that last for years beyond the camp. Note: Our camp is screen free to help maximize musical focus–and positive human connections between our campers.
We want to meet YOU. We are interviewing for this position in March 2023.
