Hello. My name is Todd. I've been playing music for most of my life. I recently graduated from Webster University with a BA in music after receiving an AA in guitar performance at SWIC. I play in several bands in the St. Louis music scene and try to play music as often as possible. I look forward to hearing from you.

I wanted to learn guitar, but I knew absolutely nothing about it. After weeks of failed self-teaching I decided to get a tutor. Best move I ever made and better yet, I stumbled upon Todd. Not only is he extremely talented, but he knows his music theory. Every week he would blow my mind with something new and I actually looked forward to the next week's lesson. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Would highly recommend him to anybody, young or old.

Todd taught my daughters, aged 9 and 7 guitar and piano, respectively. I can easily say that Todd is the best thing in music my daughters could have asked for! He was patient with them, let them learn at their pace and was an awesome teacher. Most of, my daughters learnt to love and appreciate music.

I am a guitarist myself and I can safely say Todd is a great teacher and he has set them up for learning music and so much more for the rest of their lives. We would have continued the lessons had he not moved to another city.
We wish him all the success!

My son has really enjoyed his lessons and even practices without my nagging!

Todd is a fantastic guy! He's patient, informative, and genuinely educates you, even at the most basic level.

Highly recommended!
