Long Answer

I’m not a venture-funded startup nor a major corporation. I’m—a self-employed musician, author, teacher, graphic artist located in southeastern Pennsylvania, USA. And this web site, books, lessons, songs and content have been grinding along in one form or another along since 1995, the ukulele part has literally been a full time effort since 2003 - literally years of effort have gone into creating this content.

Making my books only available on this, my web site is an experiment in using the web as a serious book publishing platform. My goal is to take my music expertise and knowledge that I've gained from the past 40 plus years of serious study, research and application as a performer, student, author, private music teacher and make it available in your quest to be a better musician, enjoy the ukulele more or just having more fun in what you are doing.

I wanted to deliver and present this material with a high standard of quality typically associated with traditional printed, mass produced books by traditional publishers. While taking advantage of all the web has to offer.

All my, Curt Sheller books are the sole product, with 100% of, and all the effort, graphic design, site coding, content, marketing, fulfillment, etc... - by one person – your truly.

Your purchase supports all that it takes to keep this site going. And, a membership is the best way to do that. I'll not do the Pateron or Kickstarter route for begging for money ( nothing against fellow artists that go that route - just not my cup-of-tea.

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books!Peter Rhee
