 "Todd was my son's private saxophone instructor as well as the head of the school's jazz band. He not only provided great musical training but also he acted as a wonderful role model. I can't say enough about his influence, most notably his support in helping my son pursue a jazz studies major in college with a merit scholarship."


Top Qualities: Great Results, Personable, Creative

Diane Mouradian ACC, M.A., MFT

 “Although you taught me a lot about the mechanics of playing saxophone, you passed on a love for the music, and for that, I am really indebted to you.”


Brendan Martin, Lead Tenor - Monterey Jazz Festival County High School All-Star Band

  “I have known Mr. Todd Clickard in a professional educational environment for many years, and would like to express fervent support for his selection as music teacher. He has taught a multitude of young students who have participated in Monterey Jazz Festival’s education programs in both woodwind and brass for years, and his pedagogy is solid. Mr. Clickard has also directed county-wide high school ensembles at Pacific Grove High School, producing enriching performances by students and garnering respect by the arts community. His proficiency and graciousness as an educator has been lauded by the many students he has taught, giving them firsthand experience and knowledge in music, as he himself as a professional band leader has produced many groups in concert venues throughout the Monterey Bay and beyond.”

     “Mr. Clickard is a superb and experienced Instrumental music teacher, having taught thousands of hours of private instruction to students in Monterey County over an arc of many years, in addition to years of classroom instruction.”


Paul Contos, Education Director, Monterey Jazz Festival
