Finding UU online was the best thing to happen to me in my attempts to learn to play more than just basic ukulele. Using the starter exercises and practicing as I was supposed to. Enabled me to pick up to a level of play that now, I play in public (before it was only at home). Coupled with the further advanced song videos on You Tube, I feel like more of a musician than ever before. I did attend a few local seminars in my area of Washington State and with UU's background already done these other classes were learned successfully. Could not have gotten there without you folks. Keep on training we the members of UU, learning is a life long thing, a degree, certificate or diploma doesn't mean you are done, just ready now for higher learning.
