Who are guitar lessons for?
We are happy to offer guitar lessons for everyone, of all backgrounds and abilities. We offer guitar lessons for beginners, and for experienced guitarists who want to refine their craft. We have students who are as young as 6, though we don’t recommend any younger than that, and several students who are in retirement looking for a new creative outlet. Whether you are seeking a new pastime, or are looking for the serious training you would get at a guitar academy, we would love to welcome you into our school.
Guitars Available for Student Use
While it is best to bring your own guitar to the lesson, we have several guitars available in our studio for students to use if they are unable to bring one. We have quality instruments, and do not have any cheap instruments, because it is important that students study on a guitar that is easy to play and that produces a good sound. We also rent quality guitars for a low price to students who cannot afford a great instrument right away. We do this to enable their learning and progress, and make sure that no student will struggle with their instrument.
Acoustic Guitar Lessons NYC
Not all types of guitar are the same, nor are the many styles of music you can play on that guitar. That’s why we offer specialized lesson on the acoustic guitar. Whether you are looking to strum some chords while you sing, play fingerstyle guitar, or learn how to play in a band, we’ll design a program for your specific needs. There are also many different types of acoustic guitars, we’d be happy to help you find the right one for you, and the music that you want to play so that you will make the fastest progress possible in your acoustic guitar lessons.
Classical Guitar Lessons NYC
We take pride in our Classical Guitar program. The school’s founder is a nationally recognized teacher of classical guitar, and the director of the NYC Guitar Orchestra. Under his leadership, we are able to provide you with the highest level of classical guitar training, plus additional opportunities and access to the classical guitar scene in NYC. Not only will you learn solid technique, but you will learn artistry and interpretation, and everything you need to know about the business of making music on the guitar.
Electric Guitar Lessons NYC
The electric guitar offers a whole range of opportunities and sounds that are not possible on the acoustic or classical guitar, which we find very exciting! In your lessons at Sage Music, you will learn not only the proper technique for playing the electric guitar, but also the ensemble skills you need to play with others, how to improvise and solo, and how to set up your amps and effects to get the best possible sound and tone. We take a holistic approach to your learning of the guitar.
