I think I learned more in 10 weeks at NYC Guitar School than I did in an entire year of trying on my own.
Brad, Media Relations
There are lots of places where you can find great guitarists, there are lots of places you can find great teachers, but these are awesome guitarists who love to teach.

The school rocks...it's a lot of fun!
I really like the staff. The staff is the friendliest I've seen in 12 years of advanced education.
It's fantastic. It's changed my life, actually. Probably the best thing that's happened to me in New York is finding this school.

After failing with uninspired private lessons, my Absolute Beginners group got me through the first ten weeks, and the next ten, and the next ten...NYC Guitar School rocks!
