Knowledgable, Thorough and Articulate
Brad offers up some wonderful insights along with his thoroughly analyzed and researched teaching on learning and playing the ukulele. I especially enjoyed his podcast re ukulele “teaching” in Hawaii from the Hawaiians and how it is done. No ka heke!
Thoughtful and insightful
Many of us here in Hawaii know Brad as being a premiere ukulele teacher and performer. And as expected he does not disappoint with this podcast. His approach to teaching is about thinking of the music as a whole concept, not just the basic fundamentals that is usually found in books or other instructional materials. I think the grasp he has on his ideas about music can be applied to any instrument, not just ‘ukulele. I’m really looking forward to hearing many more future podcasts.
