International Visitors


As requested by Jenny Takemoto, a business contact, we went to a private condo in Lahaina to teach ukulele to three visitors from Hong Kong in September 2015. This was the first lesson for the young man and two young women. The joy of making music is a universal language we all speak regardless of our country.

On another note, Jenny Takemoto setup a interview with a China travel magazine on Thursday, 28 May 2015 in Kahului. We met at the Courtyard Marriott hotel for 2-hours before the Feature Director of Voyage Magazine, Elf Dong, and her photographer (who spoke little English) caught their flight out. They sent me a link to the magazine article after it was published in September.
