When did you start playing melodica?


What is your playing level?


What musical genres are you interested in?

Blues, roots, reggae, and jazz

What is your musical background?

Studied accordion as a teenager and performed at the Worlds Fair in Osaka, Japan. I transitioned to Hammond organ and played rock music professionally for a few years. Later in life I performed blues, soul, and R&B music on and off for about 20 years during a 40-year period (mostly on Hammond organ). In that time frame, I also composed, produced, and recorded many original songs, playing all the parts utilizing a MIDI recording studio. I started studying and playing the melodica as a main instrument in late 2013.

What melodicas do you play?

Vintage Hohner melodicas

Anything to add?

My goal is to have fun and apply the melodica to blues music.
