Gowanus Music Club is a school of rock that offers rock music lessons to children and adults with 4 music school locations in Brooklyn, NY and Manhattan, NY.


For kids who wanna rock!  Gowanus Music Club offers rock band coaching for kids 8-16 in Brooklyn, NYC and Manhattan, NYC.  


Gowanus Music Club is a school of rock that offers young people, ages 8 to 17, and adults an opportunity to play music together in a friendly, safe and productive environment. Our goal is to help students develop ear training, learn their favorite songs, and jam together as a band. We also encourage our students to write and arrange their own original material. Beyond that, GMC strives to foster the kind of confidence in each student that inspires them to make positive choices, build strong creative expression, and seek collaborative relationships.

All of the teachers of Gowanus Music Club know first hand what an early commitment to music can bring to a young person’s life. We know because when we were young – we were lucky enough to have great musical mentors. Our instructors hail from places as diverse as the shores of Cape Town, the wilds of Oregon, and the streets of Buenos Aires.  Members of the GMC staff have spent their lives performing and touring for both major and indie labels, and possess a wealth of first hand experience to share with students.  The rehearsals, recordings and shows that GMC students participate in take place at top professional facilities. As a result, students engage on a deep level with their music. Together, we discover courage, we build character, we encourage critical thinking, and creativity. We also have fun!

Music remains the driving force in our lives.  Since 2009, Gowanus Music Club has been honored to teach, mentor and guide hundreds of individuals. Our students perform regularly Joe's Pub and Rockwood Music Hall, two of the best venues in all of New York City. We continue to grow our mission and diversify our community to support students through the transformative power of music.
