About Todd A.

Hello! My name is Todd. I've been playing music for most of my life. My first instrument was a Casio keyboard when I was about ten years old but I moved over to guitar as a teenager and fell in love with it. I recently graduated from Webster University with a BA in music after receiving an AA in guitar performance at SWIC. In college, I learned everything from music theory to conducting as well as playing in the guitar ensemble, jazz ensemble and so on. Over the years I have played in a handful of bands in the St. Louis music scene but in January 2019 I moved to Portland, OR and taught lessons with Guitar Center. I have been teaching for 5 years and have had hundreds of students, some of which have been with me for a few years now. I look forward to hearing from you!

We're impressed by our 6.5-year-old's progress already after just three lessons.

I’m very happy with my lessons!
Todd has already taught me basic concepts on my ukulele, & I’m playing.
It’s wonderful to have a challenge like this right now.
Todd is very patient with me, & he has a great sense of humor!

Todd is wonderful! The lessons are always a combination of fun and challenging. I'm so engrossed in the lesson, 60 minutes just go right by. He's so patient and calm and encouraging, an ideal personality for a teacher.
Would highly recommend lessons with Todd to anyone who wishes to learn ukulele!

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!
