ABOUT

Hello, my name is Daryl Ching and I am based in the San Gabriel Valley. I sing and play acoustic guitar fingerpicking style which can be ideal for intimate settings and is described as easy-listening with a groove. Many of the songs I cover will have you singing along. In October 2018, I started volunteering with a non-profit organization called Musicians On Call (musiciansoncall). We visit patients of varying ages and backgrounds going from room to room in hospitals and healthcare facilities and offer "bedside performances." That experience has changed me and my purpose for playing music. I have seen music touch people inside... in ways that medicine or treatments can not. It is not just the music alone that helps people. It is also the human connection. It's the smile, the laughter, the singing and even the dancing. I've witnessed couples hold hands as the music plays and I've seen a range of emotions. Hospitals can often feel like a cold and sterile environment but that is why a song played live by a person with feeling is welcomed by so many. Thanks for stopping by. - Daryl Ching. darylchingmusic (g mail).
