I believe it was around the age of 10 that I picked up my first instrument. It was actually a güira which is used in a variety of latin music – I used it in Merengue. I then picked up the tambora and eventually the accordion. I started on the accordion at about 15 years of age and began playing professionally with my own band shortly after. It was an amazing experience.
I didn’t come from a family of musicians, but my father loves to dance, if that counts! Anyway, I noticed early on that I had a knack for distinguishing instruments by ear. When I was about 10 I first started hearing this mysterious instrument. I couldn’t quite say what it was at the time but I definitely heard it separately from the others. I found it intriguing and later learned it was called the bass guitar. Today, the bass it one of my favorite go-to instruments.
Along the way, I ended up learning quite a few instruments including the alto saxophone and keyboard. My latest addition is the ukulele and plans to get a ukulele bass soon.
