Whether you're picking up a guitar for the first time or are a fully fledged guitar slinger, my adaptable guitar lessons will help take your playing to the next level. With a First Class Honours degree in Popular music performance and as an active session musician and artist working within the industry, I have gained a wealth of experience and versatile knowledge that I channel within my lessons in a clear and understandable manner.
Teaching in a relaxed home studio environment, well equipped with a variety of some of the finest guitars and amps, my lessons are ready for you to just turn up, plug in and go.
My passion for music and guitar started from an early age, being brought up around the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin and AC/DC to name a few. This passion soon turned into a career and have now been performing professionally and teaching for 7 years. Some of my highlights include performing on the main stage for Reading and Leeds with my originals band, Performed on the TV show Soccer AM, Toured the UK with a high end Queen Function band as the role of Brian May, as well working regularly in function bands. In my experience of teaching, many of my students both past and present are now confidently playing in bands of their own and some are now even teachers themselves.

Perfect! I have now had 5 lessons with Todd and look forward to many more. As a beginner, I pepper him with questions that he always has answers to from technique to music theory to just having fun and enjoying the process of learning an instrument that is way more challenging that I first expected. The lessons are fun and massively useful. Todd is reliable and always answers questions even if outside of the allocated lesson. I ‘cannot recommend him highly enough.
Excellent! My husband has only had one lesson so far but really liked Todd and found him to be a skilled, patient and kind mannered tutor, very easy to get on with and makes you feel at ease immediately and able to move forward confidently with playing the guitar. As the lessons progress, I can update on the review a little more!
Thank you Superprof for providing such a reliable, simple and effective tutor service. 5 stars!
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.
During my first few gigs with the Ready to Rock school, Todd always made me feel welcome and comfortable performing on stage. Even sharing a couple laughs during the performance!
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 inspiration and I intend to follow in his footsteps!
Todd is an incredible guitarist, he taught me for years and as a result of that has turned me into a tutor aswell! I can't fault this guy, hes definitely a peoples person and his knowledge and skill around a guitar make him someone that i personally have always looked up to.
