   “Tod is an amazing teacher.  Instead of following a rote path of instruction, he lets students pick the type of music they want to play, and then adapts his teaching style to impart the necessary techniques and music theory along the way.  He believes that if playing is fun and rewarding, then students will continually push themselves to learn more. He has helped me reach a place I never thought possible.” Thayer

   "Tod has always been an influential teacher to me. In fact, his skills and teaching abilities have enabled me to become a better player and more musically inclined. His instructing method has led me from the basics of reading music to discussing uses of a Mixolydian mode.

I can't tell you what a difference Tod has made in my playing and ease on the fretboard." Tommy
