Instructor: Howard Wiley

Born in Berkeley, California, Howard Wiley displayed the seeds of his musical talent at a very young age. Wiley found himself playing in the most nurturing of all environments for young African American musicians: the church. Wiley’s music is a direct reflection of his youth, which gives his music a level of simplicity, honesty and integrity. He has developed into a very complete artist in the sense that he possesses a great awareness of the past while he continues to make statements and ask questions into the future. Wiley has recorded and performed with the likes of Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, Lauryn Hill, Miles Mosley & The West Coast Get Down, Chester Thompson, and Christian McBride.
