Do you play ukulele, guitar, or any other musical Instrument now?

Yes. I've taken lessons at Kline Music for the past six months or so. I play quite well I'm told.

Share with us the reasons for your interest...

I have been taking lessons on the ukelele for the past six months and have finally found my instrument of a lifetime. It has come so easily to me compared to other instruments I've played. I played piano for many years and always thought I was exclusively a keyboard person. Because my dad performed in Billy Jack Wills Western Swing Band in the 50s, I wanted to learn guitar after he passed away. I always wanted to learn the guitar, but I found it too difficult because of my small hands. After discovering the ukelele, everything changed. Now I can play and sing on this instrument, as I always dreamed of doing. Playing the uke is pure joy!

How many ukulele's or musical instruments do you have?

Two, a Martin soprano and Koaloha tenor. I prefer playing the tenor, which sounds so rich and wonderful.

Do you have an occasional Friday night or Sat. morning available to come out and meet with us? We also have different music clubs meeting during the week, as well as music classes on week nights (check out the calendar, we are a busy meetup site!)
