Q: What makes NYC Guitar School different? A: Our teachers, community and curriculum!

NYCGS Teacher Training

Our teachers are (of course) skilled players--but they've also gone through a slightly insane hiring and training process including 5 interviews, sample lessons, a sample class and an intense mentoring and training program.

More importantly, our teachers join our team because they exemplify our values of relentless improvement, honesty, hustle and being people centered. Our mission is coaching personal greatness one lesson at a time. Our mission driven teachers are the reason we've become one of the largest guitar schools in America.

  • five star reviews for nyc guitar school I started at the Near Beginner's Class and it was the right choice. I learned so much and my teacher is fantastic...I love coming every week. It's very supportive and everyone from the staff that I've encountered is really excited that you're there. They also have a great make-up system if you have to miss a class.

  • five star reviews for nyc guitar school I am enrolled in my 3rd 10-week course of the year [Guitar for Intermediate Beginners] and it's changed my life...I could not be more grateful. Do you know how cool it is to have ALWAYS wanted to play guitar and, in a matter of months, be able to come home to your family on Thanksgiving, take requests from them and share the gift of music with people you love while they sing along with you? It's the best.

  • five star reviews for nyc guitar school I am currently enrolled in Guitar IV [Guitar Workshop]...the teachers are AMAZING, the owner is fantastic, and the classes make learning guitar fun.

  • five star reviews for nyc guitar school I directly signed up for Dan's Advanced Beginner class, where I had my first exposures to barre chords and Dan just made those seemingly difficult techniques so much fun to learn. And the momentum just can't stop ever since.

  • five star reviews for nyc guitar school I started as an Absolute Beginner...and I am still going over a year later! By now I've taken all intro guitar classes (zero to hero), as well as songwriting, fingerstyles and guitar workshops as well as the vocal classes. The guitar teachers here are fantastic. Their passion for adult music teaching shines through, and it is always fun to come to class. Finally, the school itself is a great environment. The front desk staff is friendly and accommodating...everyone is supportive and encouraging. It feels like a community and I'm glad to feel like a part of it!
