Private Classical 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 ...

I felt really comfortable and not at all intimidated with my first lesson. Looking forward to the next lesson.
Gabriel
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 have been fortunate enough to study with many great classical guitarists since I started playing the guitar. My first instructor was a student of Andres Segovia, the father of classical guitar! I also studied with great classical guitarists while earning my degree at USC. I took years of lessons with both Adam del Monte and James Smith, and I am always glad to share everything I learned on to the next classical guitarist!

Jason is an AMAZING TEACHER!!! He is so fun and knowledgeable. I found him on Instagram. I was always admiring his guitar playing whenever I saw his videos. I reached out to him and I took my first lesson last week via Skype since I'm living in a different state. I'm looking forward to what he is gonna teach me next! Thank you so much Jason!

I took several lessons with Jason and he is a very knowledgeable guitar teacher and he makes the learning experience a good one. He breaks down the teaching experience so even the most beginning student can understand it and he caters to his students individual needs.

Ray is an amazing teacher. My 11-year-old has high-functioning autism and has a great interest in learning music. I was hesitant to hire just any teacher, as many teachers don't have the patience and understanding to work with special needs kids. However, Ray has been not only patient, but he has an exceptional way of teaching my son in a way that he would understand and retain the information. Ray is creative, intuitive, and experienced. My son is very happy and enjoys the lesson every single time. Thanks Ray.

Great friendly instructor!

Matt continues to challenge me. His teaching methods are great - he doesn't just teach techniques, he immediately puts techniques to work by applying them to a song I would like to learn. He is also very good about explaining the reasoning behind certain techniques/habits.

Excellent. Didn’t need so much info about electric guitars since we’re just starting and have an acoustic guitar. Otherwise, excellent.

"As a child about 5 Years hè already played Quarta a kind of ukelele. As a child I already was in love with music. We bechame friends and I learned a lot from him, that still is the basic for my music. As a child about nine years old hè already played beautiful Classic guitar music from Bach, Tarega, Alirio Diaz, bossa novas, Curacao music waltz ect. His father was also a great musicien. I always could listen for hours when hè played guitar and later also the organ! I'm so blessed that I had the oppurtunity to listen so much during my young years when hè played. Because of HIM I came in contact with classical music. In those days we didn't hear much on our little Island Curacao. For always I Will be grateful to HIM and his father Shon Toni! Thank you my dear friend for opening one of the most precious door in life for me and .....That's MUSIC!!!! THANKS"

I grew up in the late '70s and early '80s in the rural Midwest when "Hee-Haw," a country television program, was something that everyone knew about. It was the Grand Ole Opry’s rendition of a high-theatrical experience, and a showcase for classic country artists to play their tunes. Willie Nelson, one of my favorite songwr …
