Best guitar tutor I've ever met!
I had met Todd at the Ready to Rock School, he was the tutor and I was the student. At the time of meeting him, I had already been teaching myself to play the guitar for roughly a year. Todd was the first guitar tutor I had met at the Ready to Rock School and he left a lasting impression.
Todd is many things; friendly, supportive, patient, bright, encouraging and professional. Each lesson Todd gave, I walked away with something fun, interesting and memorable to work at throughout the week before the next lesson - scales, modes and exercises that I still use to this day in fact.
Thanks to Todd and his teachings, I was able to continue playing guitar throughout college, perform gigs in bands of my own and even become a tutor at the Ready to Rock school myself! Todd is an inspi

GUITAR TUTOR TEACHING STUDENTS THEORY AND PRACTICAL ASPECTS OF THE GUITAR THROUGH TO LIVE PERFORMANCES/LEADING LESSON SESSIONS/EQUIPMENT LOAD IN AND SET UP OF THE SAME.
From November 2010, I have had the privilege to watch this extremely likeable and capable young man greatly grow in confidence, through his initial and understandably nervous years, as a new and young guitar student with us, through to the fine chap he is today. During his time with us, as a student, his progress was quite simply astonishing and his like we haven't seen as a student to this day.
Todd was 'born to play the guitar' ...with a name like Blackmore, it was pre-ordained and as he grew older and more confident, his natural ability to share his learning with younger guitar students shone through too.
His personality, obvious passion and ability for music meant that he was an obvious candidate for bringing him back in to the school as a guitar tutor.
As hoped for, Todd flourished in his role as a tutor, due to his ability to enthuse our students and easily liaise with their parents, building a natural rapport with both parties and delivering major learning and confidence building successes for the former, particularly for our students within the Autistic and Asperger's community. Todd demonstrated ownership of broader tasks in the general running of the teaching sessions and our charity gigs and still is a much valued and respected member of the broader Ready To Rock School Collective as a result, as no one really leaves Ready To Rock School...it's a much treasured 'band' of tutors and students, past and present.
I have proudly watched his progress through to obtaining his degree and his contined rise with the excellent JUDAS www.wearejudas.com.
I'm absolutely delighted to be asked to provide this reference for Todd.
Please contact me if you require further information.
Todd's an exceptional guitarist, an exceptional chap and you'd be daft not to engage him as your guitar tutor!
