Private 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 teaching guitar for 10 years. I specialize in working with beginners, and love to work with children. Whatever style of music you enjoy, I want you to start learning songs right away and having fun. Then we can see how those songs are built, learning musiv theory to broaden your musical horizons.

About Kellen

I believe this is a great time to be a musician. I have come of age as a musician in a time when music making and the music industry have shifted dramatically. There are many positives in this shift, with new oppurtinites opening up for musicians. I also see these changes not being addressed in

Great teacher! Kellen has made me really excited about the guitar again.
Jon
Kellen is a great instructor. He explains musical ideas in an way that I qet quickly. I'll show him a song and he'll pick it up and teach it to me right away. I would definitely recommend him!
Susan
I had been playing guitar for a while, mostly learning songs and chord changes on my own. I wanted to take lessons to work on composing my own songs, and this is where Kellen really helped me. He had a lot of ideas and suggestions that were really helpful in trying to create a unique composing style. He's a trained musician, and it shows when he helps me with music theory and exposing me to lots of different styles of music.

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!!!!!

I usually check my students level of technique and knowledge about music in the first lesson and then will prepare lessons according to what they need, and will always cover the gaps they have to go straight forward to more advanced levels, depending on the student's ability of practicing and progressing will prepare the materials that is best to them

"The location is great (right by my house), his scheduling is flexible, online payment takes no time at all and perhaps best of all Jason is a great guy, very professional yet very personable and down to earth.

There is no doubt that Jason is a phenomenal guitarist. Very inspiring and encouraging. His guitar abilities are one of the best I have seen in person. Lessons are fun, interesting, and helpful. I have only been taking lessons for a little more than a couple months now, but I already see improvement.

It is great to take lessons with somebody who is both patient and encouraging at the same time. He is especially good at recognizing if the pace is getting too fast/slow and adjusting for that. I consider myself fortunate to have found such a good teacher."

"I recommend Aaron to anyone and everyone for his services in teaching music!

I started guitar lessons with Aaron when I was 11 years old and stayed his student till I was 17!!! He has taught me so much about guitar and how to play! We would work on cover songs and a little bit about music theory. He kept the learning fun and not boring with the music theory, since I was young. He showed me the fun, musical side to playing and learning songs. But see, thats what was cool about it. Now that I'm 19 and in college studying music, I think back, if it wasn't for Aaron and the way he taught me; I might not be that into learning more about music. As I got older I started to see the puzzle pieces of music come together. There is a whole structure to writing songs and music and Aaron knew, that for me, the best way to learn was to start with songs and let my own curiosity about music be my drive and determination to learn more about it and how to write it!!! Aaron and I have stayed close friends over the years. He is still really helpful to this day because not to long ago i called him up and asked for some advice on music colleges as well as some good music books to learn from. Thats what is so cool about Aaron, he will always help his students out in the best way he can! :)"

"I've been taking lessons with Eric for about 6 months once a week for 1h online, we have been mostly focusing on lead guitar playing. Before that I couldn't really play solos, now I can play solos of about 19 songs to some extent, some better than others. I got to a level when I can learn new solos on my own of most songs that I like, which was way too hard just half a year ago. Eric is a great teacher, very knowledgeable about all things related to a guitar."

"As a middle aged man trying to learn an instrument, it was a daunting task to find a teacher that would work with me to learn the basics of guitar without laughing at my inability to actually play the darn thing.

Adam has been a great teacher and exactly the sort of professional and understanding person I was looking for. While I don't think my mediocre (getting better every week) guitar skills are the best testament to Adam's ability as a teacher, I think the fact that he has encouraged me to stick with it and turn a crazy idea into a legitimate hobby is."
