This portrait is of students in Dailey’s Moreharmony Music Studio. Pictured in the middle front with the banjo is Chuck Dailey, the son of the studio’s owner, Charles C. Dailey.

Chuck Dailey is now an internationally renowned guitarist and composer who taught music in the Worthington area throughout the 1970s and ‘80s. He owned Chuck Dailey’s Guitar Center, which was located at 156 Graceland Boulevard in the Graceland shopping center, where he had his studio, sold musical instruments and taught guitar lessons. With a teaching staff of 12, the studio served up to 700 students per week.

Dailey was born on the west side of Columbus to a professional banjo-playing father and music-teaching mother. His first public performance was at age 5 on the accordion on WHKC radio in Columbus, and he began teaching music at the age of 14. After high school and serving in the United States Army, he focused his career on teaching, performing and composing music.

In addition to his wide-ranging achievements as a performer and teacher, Dailey’s albums of relaxation music have received recognition from health professionals and schools for their ability to calm and relax patients and students. In 1998 he was recognized by the General Assembly of the State of Ohio for his contribution to music in Greater Columbus.

Dailey’s Moreharmony Music Studio operated in central Ohio throughout the 1930s and ‘40s, teaching many students how to play banjo and guitar.
