What we're about

The NYC Guitar School Meetup of Guitar Awesomeness brings together New York City musicians in positive, fun events that connect with you with other music-loving humans!

Do you love guitar? Do you love singing? Do you dream of playing in a rock band? Just want to try something new and meet awesome people?

This meetup is where you can get started with playing guitar, get started with performing, or dive into advanced guitar topics with other guitar loving New Yorkers.

We have cool online and in-person events for all levels! And of course the heart of our meetup is the Open Mic for Beginners, where less experienced performers get the chance to practice and polish their cover or original song at home, and then perform in a supportive small online group, with warm and encouraging feedback, and socializing.

Some of our events are free...but there is a small charge for some of them, like the Open Mic for Beginners ($5). We also have an amazing monthly class membership, where you can take a ton of live online classes. You can try one month for $59 (https://nycguitarschool.com/new-member-sign-up/) and for being in this Meetup group...you can try one class for free!

Questions or want to try a free class? Reach out to me via Meetup or email me at jen@nycguitarschool.com

ONLINE Intro to Open Mic - Workshop, Show, and Share

Link visible for attendees

$5.00

Perform that song (or piece of a song) you’ve been practicing alone in your room! NOTE: This Open Mic is a regular NYC Guitar School class. Guests from outside the school are VERY WELCOME, but because most spots are reserved for students, public RSVPs via Meetup are limited to a maximum of 3 per Open Mic.

Whether it’s stringing together your first two chords, working toward singing in front of people, introducing your song writing, or playing a song that you are rehearsing at home - this introduction to open mic is a welcoming workshop for beginners who don't feel quite ready to perform on stage.

Let’s play, connect with others, and express ourselves in a supportive environment with other students!

PS: If you are a current NYCGS Member (or interested in becoming a member)...please sign up using the member class sign-up page, as this open mic is included with your monthly membership at https://nycguitarschool.com/members/
