What you'll learn in this guitar class:

Absolute and Total Beginners start here! Starting from zero, learn basic chords like D, G, Em, C, D7, Am, C, A and E, with super broken down step-by-step explanations of chord diagrams, strings and fingers--and real songs by artists like John Legend, Sublime, Taylor Swift, Coldplay and more. 

Yes, you really can and will learn to play guitar in this class! 

Here's how it works:

  1. Attend class weekly. The class cycles through the basics of guitar playing over 6-8 weeks, and then begins again. (Need to miss a session? No problem--make it up with another group session or a discounted private lesson. Want to attend more? Add other sessions at no charge! 
  2. Practice at home using the included video play along course. The more you practice, the faster you learn! 
  3. This simple Level 1 warm-up video is your friend! It only takes 2 minutes--do it before every practice session to warm up and to review your very basic fundamentals. In fact, try it right now (don't worry if it feels tricky, you'll get used to it!)
  4. At the end of each practice session, review the class graduation video. PLAYING ALONG WITH THIS VIDEO IN REAL TIME IS YOUR GOAL. First, you may be confused. Then you may be challenged. And finally, you will crush it!
  5. When you're ready, record a video of yourself playing along with that graduation video.Our NYC Guitar School team will declare a day of celebration and place you in your next class. And you will have proved to yourself that you are the on-fire, learning, growing, guitar-playing creature of spirit and light that you suspected you were!

Most absolute beginner students are able to play along with the graduation video after 6-8 sessions. But faster or slower is OK! You do you!

Prerequisites:

None!  Just bring your desire to rock!

Original cancellation policy (non-COVID-19):


You can cancel your registration any time before the first class for a one hundred percent refund or credit. You can withdraw from a class at any time after it begins by notifying us for a one hundred percent credit (not a refund) for future sessions which are scheduled after your drop date.

Secondly, you can drop in on the same session of a different section of your class--for free. Finally, we offer discounted private make-up lessons for students who want to go over their missed class one-on-one.
