“I picked up my first ukulele 3 years ago with no prior music experience. I taught myself a few chords and joined a few groups in order to practice and improve my playing. It was only when I signed up with Mele Fong that I received any formal instructions in ukulele playing. Mele showed me how to hold each chord correctly for a clear sound. She also taught me new strums and picking techniques that have added another dimension to my playing. Mele’s lessons are fun and easy to follow yet offer challenges at any skill level.
My ukulele sounds better with each song, thanks to Mele Fong!” — Janet Rineer, June 2011 (since July 2010, Maui Ukulele Pops Band member since January 2011)
