TODD BLACKMORE:- 2010 - 2014 student & tutor0
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.
