What are guitar lessons at Sage Music like?

Our guitar lessons extend beyond the guitar. While our guitar teachers will show you how to play the guitar, they will also show you the best methods for learning and practicing the guitar so that you will get the best possible results from your lessons and your practice at home. This will result in the swiftest progress possible. Many of our students apply the things they learn here to other parts of their life. We are not satisfied unless we are offering you the best lessons possible. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to meet and play music with our other guitar students when you join the community at our nyc guitar school. We have recitals, music parties, and two concert series that offer you the chance to interact with others. We offer private lessons, acoustic guitar lessons, electric guitar lessons, jazz guitar lessons and classical guitar lessons.  We also have a few free lessons available on our YouTube channel if you’d like to see us in action.

  • What I liked the most is the approach to teaching, very relaxed, unhurried, building the foundation first before jumping into something more sophisticated during my guitar lessons.

  • Jason Sagebiel is an excelent guitar instructor. Jason is teaching how to play an acoustic electric guitar. I been going to him for about 2 years and have learned both practical and theory. I highly recommend Jason as a guitar instructor.

  • Though an experienced guitarist in many styles of music, like many others I’ve long felt I lacked the basic technique and focusing skills necessary to be fully in control of my playing and musical satisfaction in general. Jason’s refreshing back-to basics, direct and supportive approach to technique has given my playing a new lease on life. It’s been well worth the trek from Park Slope to LIC and back each Saturday!

  • I’ve learned more about the elements of music and discipline in the past few weeks than I have in years of guitar playing. For the first time in four years, I feel like I am progressing!

  • Learning guitar on my own was not working, so I decided to give Sage Music a shot. A couple months later, I have improved vastly, have had adjustments made to my guitar courtesy of Sage, and have developed techniques that will make playing easier going forward. Taking lessons here is a great mix of focused technical training and a laid back atmosphere. I’m given license to decide what direction the lessons go in. I highly recommend any beginners out there to consider building a foundation with Sage Music. Guitar Lessons for Beginners at Sage Music School

  • I have gained not only a better understanding of classical guitar technique, but a whole new approach to the way I understand, practice, and view music in general. Classical Guitar Lessons at Sage Music School

  • Having worked with 4 different teachers before meeting Jason, I knew from the beginning he was different. I was amazed by his attention to detail and the passion that he was showing for my progress from day one. There might be a lot of guitar teachers out there but Jason put me on the path to becoming a true musician, and there is a huge difference between the two. Jason is more than a teacher to me, I consider him a mentor. Many of the principles that I was taught in class I was able to apply to different aspects of my life. Thanks Jason!

  • What I enjoy most about these lessons is the fact that I am learning real theory, building dexterity with several exercises, getting many handouts, occasionally being emailed with updates and reviews of past lessons, etc. I also really love the friendly and artistic energy of the building and the area. I would recommend Sage Music to my friends because I’ve tried many different guitar teachers and music schools that have not taught me anything close to what I am learning now. Previously, I was not satisfied with learning song fragments and musical pieces that were not allowing me to improve efficiently. I Also feel that my teacher really takes an interest in my musical progression.

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.

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.
