My self-summary
I'm Stoddard! My name means keeper of horses. Explains why I love animals.

I'm a music teacher/director and a piano bar entertainer (usually Brandy's Piano Bar on the upper east side). I'm currently music directing Shrek, Singing In The Rain and Alice In Wonderland (all with kids). I'm the improv accompanist for all kinds of musical improv teams and I love it. Also I have a podcast called the Stodcast and a band named Mad Magic! We improvise songs on the spot!

I desperately wish I had a dog, ocean runs in my blood, and I basically think in music.
I'm a humanist. I do not believe in God, whatever that means anyway. I love record players, the smell of books, roller coasters and that beautiful feeling when you're really into a new book. Or movie. Or show. Or album.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching, music directing, being a pianist/singer/improviser, writing commissioned songs, acting, accompanying improv comedy teams, writing, scoring things, building up a following.
I’m really good at
Making improvisers feel comfortable on stage

Getting a room of kindergarteners to idolize me
Running along the east river and enjoying the fuck out of it
