"The teachers and the staff at the NYC Guitar School are incredibly professional, passionate, knowledgeable, and engaging....Thanks to the NYC Guitar School they discovered their passion for music. My daughter loves her on-going piano and guitar private lessons and is having a blast at her Rock Band camp this summer. The NYC Guitar School really ROCKS!!!"
"NYC Guitar School is an extraordinary place. It's not just that the music program is excellent, it is the culture that makes it so awesome. The self-confidence the kids get from this school is tremendous...And the kids are so supportive of the other kids."
"I can't say enough about how this school helped cultivate my son's passion for music. We look forward to him continuing there for years to come."
"My child attended a 2 week session of NYC Guitar School summer camp. It was an amazing experience, from learning techniques and rock history, to songwriting, recording and the cornerstone last night performance by all the rock bands at a great rock venue near Times Square. The instructors are all top notch and Jen runs a great program. The 2 weeks flew; cannot recommend this program highly enough."
"My children have participated in a variety of lessons and camps through the years, but none of them have been as rewarding or enjoyable as the programs from NYCGS!! The teachers are amazing! They are extremely talented individuals who work hard to help each student reach their potential. Students not only improve their musical abilities, but learn to work as a band, supporting each other and working together. NYCGS has definitely made my children better musicians!"
"My daughter, age 15, has been attending NYC Guitar School Summer Camp for three years and my son has been going for two years doing both summer camp and year-round sessions. NYC Guitar School is an extraordinary place. It's not just that the music program is excellent, it is the culture that makes it so awesome. The self-confidence the kids get from this school is tremendous. I wish I could post before and after videos of my kids performing. In the beginning, they were a bit timid and nervous getting up and playing and now when they perform they get on that stage act as if they own it. My son on stage after his first performance threw his arms in the air and screamed: "I am so proud of myself!""
