Thanks #musicforlifefoundation for inviting us to be a part of your workshop series at your new Play4M.E. location at the Ala Moana Center. We were happy to discuss the ukulele building process and answer questions about technology, wood selection and grading. We admire the great efforts your foundation is taking to get 'ukuleles in the hands of young students in our communities, and think your new Play4M.E. community music gathering place is a real asset to supporting the growing ukulele community. We are excited for the good things to come and wish you the best! #ukulelelove#kamakaukulele#communitymatters#mahalohawaii
