Todd Green
World Music Studies
After studying composition, arranging and guitar performance at Berklee College in the mid-seventies, Todd moved to New York City, performing an eclectic variety of music with a focus on Jazz. During this time, as he was exposed to NYC’s vibrant and diverse music scene, he started developing his interest in World Music. His non-guitar studies began with taking Bansuri flute and Indian Tabla drum lessons with Steve Gorn—generally considered the foremost western Bansuri flute performer. He also started assembling his extensive library on methodology and the philosophy behind, at first, Indian music, then in later years expanding it to include Persian, Arabic, Central Asian, Far Eastern and Andean music. Just a few of these titles are:

The Ragas of Northern Indian Music by Alain Danielou
The Art of Persian Music by Jean During, Zia Mirabdolbaghi & Dariush Safvat
The Music of the Arabs by Habib Hassan Touma
Makam—Modal Practice in Turkish Art Music by Karl L. Signell
Chinese Musical Instruments by Alan R. Thrasher

After trading in the man-made mountains of New York City for real ones and spending ten years in Bozeman, MT, developing his music as a solo artist—which started to take on more of a World Music direction—he moved to the Lake Tahoe area of Northern Nevada in 2001, so he could be closer to the many amazing musicians from different musical cultures who reside in the Bay Area. When he is not on tour, he frequently spends time there performing and studying with them. Beginning at 3:00 AM he spends 14 hours per day, six days a week practicing and recording his many instruments. A few of these musician/teachers are:

David Wong (Chinese Gu-qin and Gu-zhung)
Masayuki Koga (Japanese Shakuhatchi)
Homayun Sakhi and Aziz Herawi (Afghan Rubab)
Toryalai Hashimi (Afghan Tabla drums)
Edmund Badoux (Founder of the group Sukay—Andean flutes and Charango)

All the while, Todd has assembled a CD/video library, numbering in the thousands, of native masters of string, flute and percussion instruments from many different cultures which continually inspire him in developing his own original music. In the “Instrument Gallery” section of this website, www.toddgreen.com, there are over 80 photos of his many instruments and in the description underneath each one he lists his favorite artists.
As a classically, western-trained musician who over a life-time of study and performance has developed a deep reverence and passion for many different musical cultures of the world, Todd Green’s goal is to inspire his audiences to reach out beyond their current musical horizons and embrace a new instrument, a new rhythm or maybe a different melody in a hitherto unknown scale. With so many wonderful musical cultures around the world, he feels there is bound to be something to appeal to everyone if they will just try experiencing it. In his lectures, he covers not only the differences in his many instruments and their playing techniques, scales and rhythms, but the many common threads between them and the western ones with which his audiences are familiar, to thus “Help bring down the barriers that divide us by experiencing other cultures through their music.”
