1st Family Lesson


We gave our first private ukulele lesson followed by a private concert for a family at their location in June 2016. Daughter Kim hired us to be the surprise for her mom’s 80th birthday at their celebration. We brought 6 ukulele from our private collection including Martin and Kamaka brand instruments. After the lesson for 6 people ages 13 – 80, we gave a one-hour concert. A total of eleven family members from across the mainland came to Maui for the celebration.
