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 better 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.

    Aloha friends! Here's a wonderful conversation I had with Joe and Kristen Souza from Kanile'a Ukulele before the Ukulele Festival Hawaii. We talked about ukuleles, of course, but lots of other things, like trees and forest bathing.
