Todd Hartman - Drums/Percussion/Keyboard
Todd has enjoyed music since his days at Franklin Regional and at the same time he pursued his mastery of percussion by working on his keyboard skills. His love of marching band was reinforced as he attended and graduated from the University of Pittsburgh.
Todd was given the opportunity to lead the percussion line at the University of Pittsburgh for several years. Todd got the teaching bug and went back to college to complete a musical education degree at Duquesne University in order to attain his teaching certificate.
The Ambridge Area High School Steel Drum Band, under the direction of Todd Hartman since 1999, has received regional and national recognition for its outstanding musical ability, unique style, and infectious energy.
The Steel Drum Band has shared the Heinz Hall stage with the Pittsburgh Symphony Pops and appeared annually in late B.E. Taylor's popular Christmas show and most recently in the B.E. Taylor tribute performances at Heinz Hall.
