"Martin has consistently and creatively supported my children in developing their musical talents over the last five years. He has, in particular, patiently worked with my son as he made his way through the brass section looking for the best fit - Euphonium with a sideline in Trombone as it turns out - whilst at the same time making sure he progressed through his practical grades and music theory exams. This combination of encouragement and achievement means I would certainly recommend Martin's services."

''Mr Todd combines a warm, charismatic and diplomatic teaching style with experience, knowledge and professionalism.''

- SD, Ramsey
As the children have grown up, Martin has taught piano, guitar and singing in our house and we have all enjoyed the lessons (myself included). He guides and encourages, is honest about the practice required - yet always finds a positive point to highlight."

"Mr Todd has been a wonderful music teacher to my two children, and I enjoy having the lessons here at our home. Mr Todd recommended the trumpet for my son and he has gone on to enjoy playing very much, and very well, having recently passed his grade 6 aged 13. He was also recommended by the music teacher at Kings for entry to the school following an audition there. My daughter has also very much enjoyed learning the flute, and both children also enjoy their Saturday mornings at the Bury and Ramsey concert band, where they also take part in concerts from time to time, which I'm sure give pleasure to many. Mr Todd is a friendly and amiable tutor who is also very professional in all the work he does. We feel very lucky to have found him!"

"Martin's enthusiastic teaching approach is supportive, always encouraging and inspiring. The results speak for themselves. As an adult in my late 50s I took up piano. At 60, I am now working towards Grade 5 alongside discovering the delights of Clarinet playing, with Grade 3 being my next goal. In addition, he has unlocked the mysteries of music theory."

''My 9 year old daughter has gone from complete beginner to passing her grade 1 clarinet in less than 4 months. Mr Todd is an exceptional teacher''

"If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Mr Todd is an absolutely inspirational teacher and makes learning the piano so simple. I wish I had found him years ago."

''I've learnt more piano in 6 months with Mr Todd than I had in four years with my last teacher''

"Superb musical teacher with his studio at Warboys. He has an adaptive teaching style to maximize the learning speed with lots of fun. My daughter who is a teacher cannot speak highly enough of Martin teaching her to grade 8 Saxophone. He has a gift for teaching."

"Martin has been teaching me saxophone for over a year now. I have so much fun and look forward each week to his lessons.

Before I found Martin I was with another music teacher, I wasn't making any progress at all. I was about give up . But I decided to have one more go with another teacher and start afresh. That was the best move I made.
Martin's lessons are nicely structured and have a clear path. They are held in his music studio. His teaching technique makes learning so easy.
Martin is the best choice of teacher you could choose - friendly and a good sense of humour. Puts you at ease if you're nervous.
With him my ability and confidence has grown so much that I have passed my grade 5 and I plan to take 6,7and 8. And I am playing in 2 bands!
My only regret is, I wish I had found him sooner"

"I started Clarinet lessons in 2015 when I was in my 70's and was unable to read music at the time. With Martin's help and encouragement I have progressed to Grade 5 standard, very much enjoy playing my Clarinet and look forward to my Weekly lessons. I do not believe I could have found a better music teacher."

"As part of our bucket list for turning 50, both myself and my husband decided to take up learning an instrument. We were very lucky to have discovered Martin, not only is he able to teach in a positive and supportive way but the breadth of his knowledge and expertise across various instruments has been a blessing. Between us we are learning flute, saxophone and piano plus he is also successfully teaching me how to tunefully sing with all the right notes where they should be!"

"Really enjoyed clarinet lessons and have made very good progress under Martin's tuition. Always cheerful and encouraging and an inspiring music teacher."

"My daughter and I have been tutored by Martin for several years now. My daughter initially started learning piano and then moved on to singing, and I was so impressed that I also decided to learn the piano a few months afterwards.

Martin is an extremely knowledgeable teacher spanning multiple instruments, singing, and theory. He is very patient and friendly and has a great approach with adults and children alike.

Under Martin's tutelage I have gone from being able to play some simple piano tunes by ear to having achieved some reasonably good passes in several intermediate practical piano and theory grades, and have much improved my sight reading which I though was impossible! My daughter looks forward to her lessons each week, passing several grades, and made excellent progress too.

Martin does not pressure teach meaning you learn at a comfortable pace. I would have no hesitation in recommending Martin to other adults and parents looking for a great teacher."

"Martin has been teaching my daughter piano for the past 18 months. She is progressing quickly through her grades and finds the lessons enjoyable and fun. Martin is always fair and honest with his feedback as well as motivating, encouraging and very reliable."
