Instruments Taught: Piano
It only takes a handful of notes for Todd to play before you start trying to guess where he’s from…Chicago?…St. Louis?…New Orleans? Actually, he’s a Memphis native. Having spent the first 25 years of his life there, it’s no surprise when you hear hints of Jerry Lee Lewis, Ray Charles, and Booker T. Jones in his playing. Despite playing professionally for only 8 years, he has already toured with internationally acclaimed recording artists Jackie Johnson (Memphis Grammy Winner), Alligator recording artist Tinsley Ellis, and Ruf Records recording artist Anthony Gomes spanning 47 states in the continental U.S., Canada, France, Italy, Spain, and Switzerland. The last 3 albums that feature Todd were all top 5 on the Billboard Blues Charts, the most recent of which, Anthony Gomes Live, debuted at #1.
Todd’s philosophy of teaching music involves inspiring students to find the excitement and satisfaction in music and providing the tools to do so.
