Welcome To Chris Conly Guitar Studio NYC!

Go from musical mystery to musical mastery.

Chris Conly has advocated his brand of musical individualism in New York City for over a decade.

Founded on the idea that individual self-expression is a core human pursuit – and most of our educational systems simply teach us how to color between the lines.

Don’t let the world try to make you sound like everybody else. Embrace your own creative curiosities, and unlock your latent musician within.

Master your musical passion!


Chris offers a compelling, student-centric approach to playing an instrument for adults of all levels. Song-based lessons get students quickly playing on a technical level, so they can set their sights on a more expressive relationship with music. Chris works individually with each student to quickly discover motivations, frustrations and goals, with the aim of connecting students with their audience. Regardless of skill level, Chris is a patient, enthusiastic and motivating teacher, who has a knack for immediately connecting with students and their goals. Chris excels at identifying what a student is really after, and clarifying the best method of unlocking the latent musician within themselves to achieve it.


Chris prides himself on the diversity of notable students he has worked with, across a spectrum of disciplines, and how they have have prospered from his personalized approach.

Chris makes sure new students are welcomed in an unassuming and encouraging way that has become his hallmark as an educator.
