and got sent here, it's probable that
we don't have a bio for that teacher... yet.



Sally Van Meter

Sally Van Meter is known for being the "Queen of Tone" amongst her musical peers and students. Hailing from Northern California, residing currently in Colorado, Sally teaches privately and at the Swannanoa Gathering, Common Ground, Rocky Grass Academy and SoreFingers music camps across the US and in Great Britain and is well respected for her focus on lyricism, tone, taste, and timing in her classes and being able to get you in the driver's seat taking solos even if you don't possess music theory. Sally has performed and recorded in the US, Europe, and Japan with the Good Ol' Persons, Jorma Kaukonen, Scott Nygaard, David Grisman, Jerry Garcia, Tammy Fassaert, John Reischman, and more. In her spare time, Sally wears the producer's hat in the recording studio, makes 16 mm short films and loves late night jamming, whilst trying to figure out how to jam with all those hot players that tend to hang out at music camps.
