“I learned to play the ukulele in the 3rd grade when one of the teachers taught interested students during recesses. During high school, college and as an adult, I rarely played. Then I retired and took the beginning class at the senior center but discovered that it was the same chords and even songs that I had learned as a youngster.
Then I took Mele’s class and was really challenged. I learned so many new chords and songs and ways to strum. Anyone who wants to learn more than the basics, should take this class. Mele will inspire you and you’ll have fun playing the ukulele.” — Faith Ito, June 2011 (first class of January 2009, original Maui Ukulele Pops Band member)
