Todd Green has astounded audiences across the country with his diversity on a multitude of string, flute and percussion instruments from all over the world. His performance will be enhanced by digital samplers, which allow him to record and over-dub instruments one by one, making him a one-man-orchestra of unique and exotic instruments. As fascinating to watch as to listen to, Todd intersperses his playing with entertaining explanations of the music and the instruments.
Todd Green has been writing and performing his own music professionally since the age of 15. He studied composition, arrangement and performance at Berklee College of Music and privately with Guitar Greats George Benson, Pat Metheny, Christopher Parkening and Mick Goodrick. He has also studied ethnic instruments, including the Indian Bansuri Flute with masters Sachdev and Steve Gorn, and many other instruments with players from around the world who now reside in New York City and San Francisco.
