Why take this course and how much time does it take to complete?

You've just been strumming chords and that is getting stale and repetitive but now you will mix individual notes and strums. You've been stuck on the same old strumming patterns but now you'll play arpeggios. You've been playing guitar but you really don't know anything about music and you're limited to the first few frets on the guitar you are held back by your limited chord vocabulary and you have acrofretphoboa (fear of higher frets). In this 10 week course you will learn the musical alphabet, you'll learn how to find notes and use them to build slash chords and even to move up the fretboard. You'll also learn what scales are and get your first taste of the pentatonic scale which is the foundation for thousands of iconic guitar solos.

Do I need any previous guitar experience?

Yes! This class is for students who are familiar with basic open chords including 4 finger chords such as Gadd5, Cadd9, etc, basic 8th note and 16th note alternate strumming patterns and right hand techniques like the palm mute and scratching, and who can play some songs all the way through. (If you don't yet know 4 finger chords, 16th note strumming, etc. then take Guitar for Near Beginners first.)

NYC Guitar School

We don’t merely teach guitar information. We teach people.

People succeed at guitar when they practice. They practice because they are committed. Their commitment is strengthened when their goals are motivating, when their pathways to achievement are believable and achievable, and when they are supported by other people who care about their success.

As teachers, we succeed when we help our students to identify and behave as guitar players. So we teach kids and adults fundamentals in the context of the music they are inspired by, whether it is Bach or Green Day. We break down long term goals into small and achievable steps. We give our students opportunities to hear others play, to perform, and to experience the positive role model of a teacher who excels in guitar.

Some of our students achieve great success in music. Others find a positive outlet, pastime, or experience which adds to their life. We are happy either way.
