How long have you been playing ukulele?

Character actor Kate Miccuci and ukulele chanteuse Janet Klein intrigued me. Thanks to Chyrisse Tabone, who started the East Pasco-Hernando club in 2012, the ukulele has become a bigger part of my life than I ever imagined.

Do you have any particular songs or styles of music you like to play?

I love the old standards of the '20s, '30s, & '40s (see Klein) and whimsical songs (see Miccuci.) I am also quite taken by Sarah Maisel's style.

Do you play other musical instruments? If so, which ones?

I began PIANO lessons at age 26 and continued for about $12,000, I mean 30 years. I play a little GUITAR, but the uke is even little-er. I was a high school & college student in the folk era.

Would you like to sing a few songs of your choosing in an informal group setting?

Heaven help you all, YES.

Are you interested in group lessons? If so, what do you want to learn about?

So far, the few workshops I have attended at the Getaway and online instructions have been all helpful. I am looking forward to Lil Rev's Jan. workshop.
