What our students say

“I had my first Violin lesson [online]…with Jeremy and it went very well. I felt very comfortable with him and his style of teaching left me feeling encouraged and with the sense that I have come to the right place for real growth in my violin playing. I’m excited and looking forward to my next lesson.”

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.


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.

Please don’t purchase a guitar until you speak with us. There are many considerations to buying the right guitar. We can advice you on what guitar is right for the style of music you want to play. And most important, we’ll help you get the right size guitar. Many students can struggle because their guitar is the wrong size for them.

I had my first lesson via Skype with Jeremy Roberts today and it went very well. I felt very comfortable with him and his style of teaching left me feeling encouraged and with the sense that I have come to the right place for real growth in my…playing. I’m excited and looking forward to my next lesson. Now it’s time to enjoy and get to work on my homework. Perfect practice makes perfect with Sage.”
