Meet Drew

Teacher Drew Thompson playing guitar by the beachI’m Drew Thompson, a guitar teacher with a lesson studio in Hudson, Ohio. With over 20 years experience, I am dedicated to helping students get more enjoyment out of playing guitar. In this time, I’ve instructed complete beginners to advanced players in becoming better, more well-rounded musicians.


My academic qualifications, professional and personal experiences, and community involvement have proven invaluable in guiding students in their own musical journeys.
