Hello, it's me... The Ukulele Teacher!
Back in 2011, I started recording ukulele lessons on my phone to amuse some friends at work.
Today I'm a full-time YouTuber with close to 1,000,000 subscribers, and I live in Los Angeles, California with my wife and a small chihuahua.
Since becoming The Ukulele Teacher, I've had the opportunity to travel the world, meet people I would never have otherwise met, and do things I'd never have dreamed of doing.
Thanks to YouTube, I've worked with Mark Ronson, recorded at Abbey Road Studios, appeared on the Brit Awards, hosted a one-man show in Slovenia, taught America's Got Talent winner Grace VanderWaal how to play, and become the most popular ukulele teaching channel on the Internet!
My ukulele playing and cover versions have even attracted comments from musicians such as Lisa Loeb, Leigh Nash (Sixpence None The Richer), Meghan Trainor, J. Walter Hawkes (Peg Plus Cat), and King Harvest (Dancing In The Moonlight).
As the channel has grown, people have asked me the same questions over and over: What's the best ukulele to start on? What accessories do I need? Who are my favourite uke stars? How do I make my videos?
So I've started this blog to answer some of these questions and help you guys along on your ukulele adventure!
If you have any burning ukulele questions, then hit me up on the contact page and I'll see if I can answer them in a future blog. And if I can't, maybe someone else can!
Until next time, I love you all and I wish you... DA BEST!
