This is a podcast for players and teachers of the ukulele to improve their skills at doing those things. I cover all sorts of things that I think are interesting and helpful on my journey to become a great uke teacher/player. Sometimes I'll be interviewing great teachers and players, other times I'll just be sharing insights and tips that can help you become a better musician.

Wonderful podcast chocked full of info and entertainment
Good content with clear focus
As an eager ukulele player who is learning on his own, this podcast is really essential in filling knowledge gaps as well as being entertaining and fun. The thing I love about the ukulele has been that it has allowed me to “play” with music and not be intimidated and this podcast has a similar ethos. Host and guests are very knowledgeable and humble. Keep it up!
Thank you for this wonderful podcast. I’m a musician and teacher, and have already incorporated what I’m learning in this podcast into my students’ ukulele lessons.
