All Welcome

Christmas at Kaunoa

In 2017 for the first time the annual Christmas party was open to all regardless if a person took my classes or not. This meant a mix of singers, friends, and ukulele players of different abilities came for fun, fellowship, and to celebrate the season. In subsequent years I have mentioned to newcomers that the party is a good way to check out how much fun it is to play “the Ukulele Mele Way” before signing up for my classes.
