Ukulele Hale had a lot of students enter and a lot of students make it to the finals this past Saturday. You guys did great and really stood up next to the Ukulele Hale name! It is an honor to be an instructor with students like you guys!
Kalei Gamio as the ukulele player, Don from Korea as a special interest person and myself under the ukulele instructor category. It was an awesome experience working and talking story with Uncle Kimo and glad to be part of this new beginning. We talked about ukulele instruction and what it takes for a beginner to get started playing the ukulele. Their website will go live soon and I will post it here when itʻs up.
Along side the tv show is going to be a new venue for ukulele players: The Queen Kapiolani Hotel every second Friday of every month. The idea is to have a place where ukulele players can come together and experience each others music and build a stronger community. Keep in touch and I will bring you the latest with these new developments in the ukulele community!
