As an adult, learning to play guitar should be fun, not another task on your to-do list. Finding the right method is the trick. We've found it and you'll love it!


Adults are often pretty busy. Many would love to play guitar but either don't have any musical experience or haven't played anything in years. This combined with a general apprehension around taking a private lesson with an instructor who might very likely be younger then themselves leads them to procrastinate taking the plunge. We understand, we've been helping adults learn for a long time. The NYC Guitar School courses have expertly taken the task of teaching small groups of adults to play basic guitar and turned it into a fun, relaxed and super social weekly activity that consistently produces adults who can quite simply play guitar. It works, and all it takes from you is a leap of faith, a guitar and a personal commitment from you to practice for a few minutes most days. With the right method, the right instructor and a bit of determination from you, it is TOTALLY possible.
