I created the channel in 2011 to share with Japan performance videos of my students in the Maui Ukulele Pops Band in lieu of a trip to Japan we canceled due to the March 2011 tsunami and devastating earthquake. The channel continues to grow as I find new ways to share my music.

Have fun as you Watch.Listen.Play. The Ukulele Mele Way!
