Award winning singer-songwriter
Speaking about learning to play guitar with one hand.
Tony Memmel is a singer-songwriter, speaker, and teacher with unique charisma and creativity. Though he was born with one hand, he taught himself to play the guitar professionally by building a special cast that he designed out of Gorilla Tape.
He’s toured to 47 of the 50 states, 25 countries, and has worked with 16 countries virtually sharing his music and his message of hard work, determination, and resilience.
His work ranges from visiting schools, hospitals, and churches, to writing and arranging music for children, composing symphonies, performing in historic concert venues, and helping people with hand & limb-differences (like his) to develop their own adaptive methods that allow them to make music a part of their lives.
Tony grew up in Waukesha, Wisconsin, and now resides in Nashville, Tennessee, with his wife and two sons. He enjoys playing basketball, swimming, hiking, and cooking & trying new foods… especially if hot sauce is involved.
