Hello and welcome to The Official Website of Todd Coolman!  Although I am primarily involved in the world of jazz music performance and education as a professional, I have created this Website to additionally encompass a few things that pertain to some of my interests and passions outside of music as well.  If you are interested, do stick around and check it out. If, by some slim chance, you have any parallel interests, or can in some way enhance my own experiences, feel free to reach me through my contact link with your thoughts.  I can’t promise that I will answer it immediately, but I will respond eventually.  I have posted my performance itinerary for your information as well, in case you care to come out and hear some live music sometime.  Also, please visit my Blog and my Store.  I use the blog as a place where I can free-associate, and basically talk about anything that is on my mind...either within the music world or outside of music.  My interests are quite varied.  In my store, you may sample my wares and I will provide autographed copies of anything on display.  
     I am still a devout musician, but I guess I have arrived at a point in my life where work and career, although still very important and fundamental, are not the only things I live for….

I'm delighted at the effectiveness and the response to the Skype/FaceTime instruction and other musical services I am offering. It is great to connect with people all over the world who may be 500 miles from the nearest qualified teacher! This comment from a saxophonist I recently worked with: 

"I just wanted to contact you and let you know that Ive been working on a lot of the concepts we discussed in our lesson and its been really improving my playing. I know Im only scratching the surface and Im sure it will continue to deepen! Thank you so much for your time, your knowledge and your presence. It was truly one of the most enlightening lessons Ive ever had so I just wanted you to know I appreciated it. I hope all is well and Im sure I will see you again soon!"
Most gratifying for time well spent.  Be sure to check out my STORE to peruse my various musical service offerings.
