I have been seeing Jeff for about 3 years. I was an old folkie - with no time to practice - for about 50 years, but finally my wife bought me some lessons when I retired. Hit it off with Jeff immediately. He really knows the music I want - which in my case is classic rock - but he can do pretty much anything you need. Still give him 5 stars!
Richard R.
I immediately felt at ease with Jeff and it did not take him long to figure me out and point me in the right direction. Looking forward to many more lessons with him. I wish I lived here so it could be on a more regular basis. But happy with what I CAN get. Thanks Jeff!

My Aunty is turning 80 this weekend and I decided to learn how to play Happy Birthday on the ukulele as a surprise for her. Jeff not only helped me accomplish my goal but also got me started on other songs as well. His patience and enthusiastic personality made the lessons not ony productive but personable as well!!! 2 thumbs up to an awesome instructor!!!!!

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Guitar lessons with me are unique because although I am young, I am a very experienced teacher already. I started learning guitar at 10 years old. By the time I was 16 I was gigging and teaching kids in my neighborhood and any Craigslist clients I could find. At 18, I took a 1.5 year program at the Los Angeles College of Music, where I graduated with an AA in guitar performance. Since then I have worked as a professional musician, and also as a teacher /consultant with Adopt the Arts, a non profit started by Matt Sorum (drummer of Guns N Roses, Hollywood Vampires) and director Abby Berman. In my time at Adopt the Arts I have amassed over 4000 teaching hours of teaching kids ages 4-13, so I am very experienced with kids and get along with them great since. I have also been giving other private lessons to people of all ages since 2011. Qualities that make me stand out as a teacher are relatability, patience, and an ability to identify the proper pace for the student to enjoy the ...

Taught at the basic level very well. If you know nothing about music or guitar Tommy's your guy. Goes through all the simple steps at an even pace making the entire experience relaxing. From there giving you the knowledge of your scales and blues scales, teaching you how to make mini solos on the spot really helps out with the musicality of it all. 10/5
Susana
Tommy has provided music lessons to both of my children for the past 3 years. He is a very nurturing and patient teacher. Both my children enjoy having music time with Mr. Drinkard.

I am a 30 year old software engineer that wanted to start learning guitar as my 2016 new year's resolution. Heard about Tommy through a friend and I've been taking consistent lessons ever since and progressed a lot. He is knowledgeable, patient, and just a genuinely good/funny guy to be around.

Started with some basics and built on that. Was very helpful in showing me tuning, proper hand positioning, and how to improve my fingering (those pesky notes). Got a lot for the first class and enough homework to keep me busy! Will be meeting again next week.

I am a Chicago-based guitarist and composer with a style rooted in the jazz tradition but flavored with other styles.I hold a Bachelor of Music degree in instrumental performance from Columbia College in Chicago where I studied jazz guitar and theory with Frank Dawson.

As a trained musician with a degree in music as well as a lot of professional playing experience, I offer a unique perspective to teaching guitar, both as a guitarist and a passionate educator.

I played in a few professional bands and wrote a lot of original music.
I also wrote score/soundtrack for two films.

"Albert is a musical genius and a perfect teacher. For years, I wanted to build on my guitar playing as a kid, improve and learn how to play my favorite songs in fingerstyle (Albert teaches all styles), but I could never find a teacher. I finally found Albert, literally almost twenty years ago. With his help, I tremendously improved and learned to play some great songs. I would bring in a CD with a great solo version of songs like Eleanor Rigby, Albert would figure out the tablature for it, and he'd help me learn it. We've done that with more songs that I can count Since I met Albert, YouTube came along, and now it's even easier to find great fingerstyle versions of songs on which I can work with Albert. My schedule does not permit me to see Albert and practice as much as in the past, but I still play, and ask Albert to help me with new arrangements I've found. I am not inherently musically gifted, but I have sufficiently improved that people have sometimes stopped to listen to me play when I'm shopping in guitar stores. I cant imagine there's a better person out there to help you achieve your goal of being able to play well."
