October 2. Kokua I Ka Hale Pule at Velma McWayne Community Center, Wailuku.

About 300 people attended “Kōkua I Ka Hale Pule”, the benefit for Ka’ahumanu Church organized by the 4 royal societies, on Friday night. The Hawaiian Serenaders opened the program by performing for 45-minutes from 5:15-6:00 p.m. "You should cut a CD. By what I've heard you could be nominated for a Na Hoku Hanohano Award" said one attendee. (Read more)

October 11. Maui Ukulele Festival at Maui Arts & Cultural Center, Kahului.

"You folks were great at the Festival on Sunday!" said Kathy Collins, MC. "You were the best sounding group," said the sound guy after we left the stage. The Maui Ukulele Pops Band performed for our third time at the 10th Annual Festival. New this year, students from my Ukulele Strumming 202 class joined us for a total of 13 people on stage. All students take classes from me at Kaunoa Senior Center for adults 55 and better. (Read more) (See photos)

October 17. Ukulele Strumming Workshop at Bailey House Museum, Wailuku.

Eleven people came to the first workshop of the 2015-2016 season. Everyone was new but two people, one of whom is a part-time Maui resident who just recently arrived back on island. We had some great singers and people were so happy that afterwards I felt like a rock star because they all wanted to take pictures with me. (Read more) (Read testimonials) (See photos)

November 21. Ukulele Strumming Workshop at Bailey House Museum, Wailuku.

Nine people came to my 31st Workshop since it began on July 14, 2012. Since the beginning, there have been 389 workshop participants, including this one. We have come a long way in the content, format, development of visual aids, and advertisement of the monthly events. (Read more) (See photos)

December 16. Annual Christmas Party at Kaunoa Senior Center, Spreckelsville.

Twenty four students from all my ukulele classes plus friends enjoyed the 3-hour party. New this year, I showed a PowerPoint presentation titled "Through the Years" as we walked down memory lane of classes given since 2009. (Read more) (See photos)

December 19. Ukulele Strumming Workshop at Bailey House Museum, Wailuku.

Six people came to my 32nd Workshop since it began on July 14, 2012. Another resident came and left after she opened her 'ukulele case only to find it empty - oh no she forgot to put it back after practicing! One new person brought his banjo uke, and we had fun playing some easy Christmas carols. (Read more) (See photos)
