NYCGS is AMAZING! The culture of acceptance, encouragement and mutual respect starts at the top and runs all the way to the youngest students.
Great teachers and super supportive of students.
They have come up with many creative solutions for students during recent restrictions on in person activities and kept the community intact and engaged.
Thank you!

This is the most amazing place to begin or continue on a musical journey. Every one from the teachers, to the managers, to the desk assistants is vested in helping each student progress and achieve musical greatness! Seriously, I've improved so much and am now venturing into performing at neighborhood open mics. I've been taking the guitar ensemble class with Kyle for a couple of years and it is the best. I look forward to our student showcases and performing with my class band. I started my journey later in life but it's the best decision I ever made. The Brooklyn Guitar School has helped me achieve a dream. Music is now a big part of my life and it's thanks to the Brooklyn Guitar School!

NYC Guitar School is a warm, welcoming community of highly effective and friendly teachers. Particularly outstanding is Suke Cerulo, for the Lead Guitar series, the Blues Guitar classes, and the new and fantastic Fundamentals of Music series. No matter how long you've been playing, the Fundamentals series will increase your confidence and ability to think and play music independently, rather than rely on apps or books. Classes at NYCGS are an investment in your current and future happiness!

I've became such a better guitarist since the pandemic, thanks to the online group classes and the ability to play so often-(your online videos too!) a combination of both plus my private lessons with Curtis, an incredible and dedicated teacher. Vinnie, Dylan, David K. and Gabriel are so passionate, it's a joy to learn in their groups, thank you for the quality of your teachers. Many thanks again for building such a wonderful community! I can honestly say that I've made more progress in six months than in the 2-3 years prior, trying to teach myself with apps and YouTube videos.

In 2004, New York City Guitar School consisted of a single room in the Recording and Rehearsal Arts Building on West 30th Street in Manhattan. One door led to the offices of four other businesses. The other led to a shared bathroom. As my students and I moved our guitars aside to allow yet another person use the facilities, I did not imagine that sixteen years later New York City Guitar School would have over fifty teachers and thirty studios in five school locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, or that our community would grow to include thousands of busy New Yorkers learning to play guitar or perform in bands, and thousands of students around the world who would learn through our many books, videos, and live-online lessons and classes.
