Dear NYC Guitar School Community,

I am reaching out with another regular update for you on New York City Guitar School's contingency plans related to potential coronavirus impacts. Check back on this page for regular updates.

You love music and you love your lessons. We love music and we love teaching you! FEAR NOT! NYC Guitar School students--the rock will not stop! But it might look a bit different.

Something Free For You And/Or The Kids
The speed with which many people we know and love are getting laid off is striking, and of course many people are sheltering in place, without the usual activities for kids and adults. So we decided to put together a free mini-course for beginners. This is all you need to get started playing--24 short video tutorials, a 22 page PDF you can download to view or print, and 14 songs.. It's totally free, it will truly get you playing--and please share it!

Lessons and Classes Continue With Extra Greatness and Perks
A few weeks ago, we began transitioning some of our private lessons to live-online instruction. We were not exactly certain of how this transition would go, but you have been continuing to take virtual private lessons and now - classes!

Both private lessons and group classes now come with a bunch of cool perks to deliver the best value to your live-online learning! Not only will you receive instruction from an expert teacher in the form of a weekly private lesson or a group class, but you will also get full access to hundreds of video lessons and PDFs of NYC Guitar School books, lessons and charts; admission to live-online virtual open mics, study halls, concerts, workshops and daily online drop-in classes; access to the exclusive NYC Guitar School Facebook group; free make-ups for missed classes; and more.

We're currently offering $20 trial lessons to give you the chance to try it out. I think you might be impressed.

We, just like you, will continue to hope for the best and see how this story unfolds. No matter what, I expect we will all want music more than ever!

As always I'm grateful to you, our students, making music together in our great city.

Good health, and expect regular updates!
