I started playing the guitar the moment my older brother told me that I couldn’t play his under penalty of death! That all changed in the fall of 2008 when I met the ukulele! There was an instant attraction and an immediate connection with my four stringed friends. But I have found that I also have that same connection with others that play the ukulele. I find them to be kind, generous, encouraging, and fun loving people!
The Uke has opened many doors and many friendships for me.
I am truly blessed.

When I got my first uke I never thought about having it for 40 years- I only thought I'd have something fun to do with a favorite cousin that summer. I still have that uke (and a few more) but the friendships I have made while playing the ukulele have been irreplaceable.
Music is a wonderful thing on it's own, but making music with others is an incredible experience and the ukulele makes that experience available to most people. Get a uke and learn a song- you'll be amazed at the friends you make.
