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 ...

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

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.

My students will have the opportunity to learn music theory and perform their favorite songs from any genre in my lessons. Throughout my 27 years of playing the guitar and 17 years of teaching it, I have learned that patience and practice are what defines a great guitarist. During my lessons, the student will not be rushed, and they will not feel uncomfortable nor nervous in my setting. Overall, their time will be used effectively when they are with me. Understanding is one aspect, but practice completes the process. A student has to practice at home as well. They will be provided practice sheets or online exercises to help them achieve that effectively.

"My experience with Raymond has been wonderful! I have been studying classical guitar with him for a few years and have steadily improved even though I have less time and energy to practice than I would like. Raymond teaches the process of learning music, and as I have opened up to this process, I have seen great results, not only in music, but in other aspects of my life and learning. Raymond's instincts about how to help me learn are an example of the way he goes the extra mile to tailor each student's instruction to their needs. Hearing him play is also incredibly inspiring! Along with his wonderful personality and sense of humor, these qualities keep me excited to play the guitar, and always brighten my day! I highly recommend Raymond as a teacher to anyone who loves music!"

"I had been playing primarily heavy metal guitar for the past decade or so, but recently I had been itching to give classical guitar a shot. I chose Shaun primarily because he lived in my area and because he offered in-home lessons at a very reasonable rate.

After 6 months of lessons or so, I have to say I've had every expectation met and exceeded. He puts a lot of effort into designing his own instructional materials (exercises, theory work, etc), and he always comes to the lesson with a plan. He's also done a great job helping me develop proper technique (particularly in the right hand) and certain musicianship skills (e.g., improv, inflection/mood). The pieces he has chosen for me to work on have been both challenging for my skill level but also musically compelling.

Most importantly, he's just the nicest guy in the world, always has a lot of enthusiasm (but isn't over the top), and has an open mind when it comes to others' taste in music and what his students want to get out of the guitar.

In sum: my lessons with him have been very effective and have been a blast, I highly recommend him!"

"I continue to love taking guitar with Raymond, which I have been doing for more than a few years, now. He is such an insightful and encouraging teacher that each new challenge becomes something fun to learn. His approach to music as a process has helped me tackle other life goals as well, and to grow as a person. If you want to learn and ENJOY beautiful music with a warm, generous, masterful, and talented teacher, who truly cares, you will want to take lessons with Raymond!"

"I sat in on every lesson Michael gave my daughter, who had not studied guitar before. He uses the time effectively, balancing sight reading, repertoire development, music theory (which he presents in very practical and immediately useful ways), and at all times instilling the technique necessary to sustain rapid progress. My daughter really enjoyed studying with him, and I really enjoyed watching her go from a blank slate to a guitarist you want to listen to. I completely and unreservedly endorse this teacher."

4 Essential Classic Rock Guitar Solos That Will Make You a Better Player

Learning to play other people's guitar solos is a great way to begin learning to write your own! Guitar teacher Nils B. shares his tips to learning four classic rock solos so you can develop your technique... An essential part of every musician's development is to imitate those who have already mastered their instrument. After settling on a song, give it a couple of close listens (preferably on headphones or a decent stereo), pick up a good transcription, then learn the rhythm parts, while …
