Brooklyn Guitar School Guitar Lessons in Brooklyn, NY
We dont 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.
Michelangelo comes to us from Boston as a recent graduate and scholarship student of Berklee College of Music, where he earned a degree in Guitar Performance. He has over 15 years of playing experience in all styles of music, with Classic Rock and Metal holding a special place in his heart.
Chris Gabriel has been playing guitar for fifteen years. As a singer/songwriter, he has fronted two bands, SGT and The Atlantic. In between those two projects, Chris spent some time touring the country as a hired guitarist. He has played guitar on stage at almost every Hard Rock and House of Blues across the country.
Marisa began playing guitar 10 years ago in college at the University of Maryland. Five guitars, six bands, and many solo projects later, Marisa now preaches the gospel of rock and roll, and teaches guitar to early and advanced beginners everywhere.
We are so pleased that we convinced the amazing Kyle Tigges to join our staff! Hundreds of students of all ages and levels have become proficient guitar players and intelligent musicians with Kyle's patient and expert coaching. He has tremendous knowledge of music!

I inherited my first acoustic guitar back in April 2010 - In May 2010 (Since I have NEVER played an instrument in my life) I started weekly classes with Kyle Tigges at BGS and now, as we close out 2010, I am not only playing, but also WRITING chords to my own songs, and playing them... and am well on my way to being the folk-rocker I have always wanted to be!
