Lil' Rev was born and bred in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with dual passions for music and education. After college he taught music to grade schoolers at the Milwaukee Jewish Day School and served as an adjunct music historian and lecturer at The University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. After many years of performing in the Midwest, Lil' Rev left his teaching jobs behind to pursue his musical dreams full-time. Since then, he has traveled hundreds of thousands of miles, visited every state in the Union (except Alaska and Hawaii), wrote almost a dozen instructional books, recorded over a dozen albums and taught thousands of students ukulele and harmonica.
