Small Kid Time Ukulele Songs Review

www.UkuleleMeleOnMaui.com

Mele Fong presented “Small Kid Time Songs” for the June Sing-Along with Mele Fong series on June 15 on Maui.

“I’ll be back,” commented a first time participant after the program.

Nineteen people signed up for my monthly Sing-Along with Mele Fong Series – Small Kid Time Songs on Friday, June 15, 2018 at Kaunoa Senior Center for adults 55 and better on Maui.

During the new “Hawaiian history moment of the month” I talked about Kamehameha Day, one of two state holidays honoring Hawaii’s royalty. King Kamehameha united the islands into one kingdom in 1810. Read more by clicking here.

The “Sing-Along with Mitch Miller” format of projecting the song lyrics and ‘ukulele chords on a screen at the front of the room, and having my husband provide the u-bass line to fill in the lower tones to the higher pitched ‘ukulele worked great! We continued the routine of learning how to pronounce any Hawaiian words in the songs, the story behind each song whether it was Hawaiian or not, and playing each song twice to reinforce what we learned.

We sang all ten planned songs including two with Hawaii roots. Here is the song list with my unique ‘ukulele strums:

  1. Froggie Went A Courtin’ – Hum Ding-Ah Strum.
  2. The More We Get Together – 2 Waltz Strums.
  3. She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain – Hum Ding-Ah Strum.
  4. Days Of My Youth – Latin Strum.
  5. You Are My Sunshine – Hum Ding-Ah Strum.
  6. I’ve Been Working on the Railroad – 4And/Tom Tom Strums.
  7. Kuu Home o Kahaluu – Latin Strum.
  8. Oh Susanna – Hum Ding-Ah Strum.
  9. Que Sera, Sera – 2 Waltz Strums.
  10. Hawaii Aloha – Morse Code Strum.

Review Hawaii State Holidays Program

State Holidays was the title of the program on Wednesday, May 30 at Kaunoa Senior Center on Maui. This was the second in the new Hawaiian History and Song Series for 2018.

Seventeen people signed up for State Holidays, the second program in my new Hawaiian History and Song Series for 2018 on Wednesday, May 30 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Kaunoa Senior Center for adults 55 and better. The focus was on learning the history behind Kuhio Day and Kamehameha Day, Hawaii’s two state holidays honoring past royalty, and singing related songs. Part one lecture took about 60-minutes, followed by Part two taking 25-minutes to get through five songs. The first two songs honored Kamehameha and the second two songs honored Prince Kuhio by taking place in Waikiki where he lived with his wife.

Afterwards, one new attendee came up to ask when the next program would be (just when I’m wondering whether to continue the history series next year). It was rewarding to see many returning people who expressed their enjoyment of the program, too.

Here is the list of 5 songs with my unique ‘ukulele strums that we played:

  1. Hawaii Ponoi – Waltz Variation Strum.
  2. King Kamehameha the Conqueror of the Islands – I Wanna Rest/4And Strums.

Kamehameha Day at the Nation’s Capitol

www.UkuleleMeleOnMaui.com

U.S. Senator Akaka, Mele Fong, U.S. Rep Neil Abercrombie, and Richard Tom in front of King  Kamehameha statue in Statuary Hall in Washington DC, 1997

On June 8, 1997, I led the Kamehameha Schools Alumni Chorale during the Kamehameha Day ceremony honoring Hawaii’s first king in Washington, D.C. Our group sang “Hole Waimea” about the place on the Big Island of Hawaii where Kamehameha grew up and “Nā Ali’i about the chiefs and their famous sayings. My husband and I also sang “Ku’u Pua I Paoakalani” while Ipolani Lung danced hula to the song written by Queen Lili’uokalani about her home in Waikīkī. Kamehameha Schools alumnus U.S. Senator Daniel Akaka from Hawaii gave a talk about the national significance of King Kamehameha who united the Hawaiian islands into one kingdom in 1810.

After the program, my husband and I had the honor of taking a picture with Senator Akaka and U.S. Representative Neil Abercrombie (from Hawaii) in front of King Kamehameha’s statue draped with leis. The Kamehameha Day ceremony has been happening at our Nation’s Capitol every year since 1969 when the statue of King Kamehameha was unveiled in Statuary Hall.

In 2008, the Kamehameha statue was moved to the new Visitors Center where the Kamehameha Day ceremony hosted by Hawaii State Society continues to this day.

On May 30, 2018, I will be presenting a talk about Kamehameha Day as part of my Hawaiian History and Song Series on the 5th Wednesdays of the month at Kaunoa Senior Center for adults 55 and better. We will be singing a few songs about King Kamehameha and more.
