Play the Blues

Lead Guitar, Riffs and Licks! Everything a Beginner Needs to Play the Blues All in One Place!

The Blues is a language every musician should be able to speak. If you are a fan of The Rolling Stones or any classic rock, you are already familiar with this unique American sound. Lightnin' Hopkins, Howlin' Wolf, Robert Johnson and Chuck Berry are just a few of the Blues giants you'll hear about in this 10 week course.

Play the Blues is designed for busy people to reach their guitar playing goals. Not only will you learn the basic tenants that lead to rock and roll, you will finally be able to "jam"! Improvisation is often the skill that separates students from musicians and with this journey into the world of Blues you will be on your way to improvisation in any style!

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.
