My mother brought a ukulele on a family trip to Atlanta. The 7 hour drive was pretty stressful as three unruly bored brothers turned the backseat into a war zone. In addition to our battles this trip we each learned to play 5’2″ on the uke. My first experience with a stringed instrument. Of course we performed for Grandma, Aunts, Uncles, and cousins. That was over 50 years ago.
Since then I’ve played guitar, upright bass, and uke in assorted bands and groups mostly in Mississippi and Maine. Currently I live in Northport ME, teach preschool music in three day care centers, maintain a comfortable schedule of private students, and teach adult ed uke classes. Im also writing a beginners’ ukulele manual/web site. I am extremely excited to get this opportunity to teach at the Maine Fiddle Camp
