Some kind words from happy ukulele players:

You certainly are a magical music teacher. When my kids came round for dinner to celebrate my son’s birthday, I whipped out the ukulele and sang him Happy Birthday.
I also told them all the fabulous songs I had learnt with the 3 lesson gift certificate they gave me for Christmas.
They were most impressed and my son said I had really come a long way in my playing. Such a compliment from an accomplished musician.
So THANK YOU Alice for sharing your gift with the world. It made a joyful difference to mine!

– Teresa Fino

Learning from Alice has got me from ZERO ukulele experience (or any instrument in the last 40+ years) to confidently playing real songs that I love to sing. It’s quickly become one of the most satisfying things in my personal life.

– Meliors Simms

You are amazing Alice. One of the best things I’ve ever done is joining your classes. The ukelele is such a fun instrument. Thank you Alice.

Songs about rainbows

Songs about rainbows

So many people want to play songs about rainbows!
When I ask adult beginner ukulele players what songs they’d love to play, rainbow songs are top of the list.
There’s “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”. People want to play both the Hawaiian version and the Wizard of Oz version. And “Rainbow Connection”.
What is it with these rainbow songs? I think it’s because they are about optimism in adversity.

Many ukuleles, one bass

A good bass player is an asset in a ukulele group. It’s not essential, but it’s an x-factor in the overall sound and rhythmic drive of the group.
My Saturday afternoon ukulele group, the Strumbles, didn’t have a bass player when we started. That all changed when I brought home a double bass for my husband Matthew on his birthday.
Having a bass made a huge difference to our group sound. Everyone could hear the rhythm.
