Happy Traum

Happy Traum began his musical career in the 1960s, greatly influenced by the folk movement that had gripped the culture in America. He and his late brother, Artie, helped establish a New York scene for folk music along with some of their friends and fellow-musicians such as a young Bob Dylan. After he married Jane the couple focused on their dream to provide musical instruction that would be accompanied by music that could follow and inspire. They formed Homespun Music (which was original Homespun Tape), which has grown over the decades to provide guitar programs for classical to folk music as well as several other instruments, which now use DVDs and Internet downloads to provide musical examples.
