Caleb Bailey

Caleb Bailey is a guitarist and music educator from San Antonio, Texas. He believes that music is meant to be shared and his life long goal is to bring music to people who may not otherwise have access to it in a way that is approachable, meaningful, and healing.  

Beyond the traditional settings of teaching and performing, Caleb has extended his career into the field of arts in health. He is the Musician in Residence at North Oaks Retirement Community where he performs for the residents on a bi-weekly basis in both the independent and assisted living facility, holds public practice sessions, and teaches a class on different musical subjects once a month. His music has been described by the residents as being “calming”, “soothing”, and “reminiscent!” He also performs at the Johns Hopkins Hospital as part of a program through The Peabody Institute called Music for a While. This program creates public access to music within the hospital environment to elevate mood and reduce anxiety among those who visit, work, and are cared for within the hospital through short, informal, and accessible programs.  

As a performer, he has been playing the guitar for eleven years and has performed at the Southwest Guitar Symposium, the University of Texas at San Antonio’s Underground Music Festival, Austin Classical Guitar’s International Series, San Antonio Summerfest, and the Mary Hardin Baylor Guitar Festival. Most recently, he was invited by the Grammy Award winner Zuill Ba
