LearningUkulele.com - The Most Compressive Ukulele Site in the World
I’m not a venture-funded startup nor a major corporation. I’m — a self-employed musician, author, teacher, graphic artist, programmer, … located in southeastern Pennsylvania, USA. And this website, books, lessons, songs and content have been grinding along in one form or another along since 1992. With the ukulele part literally a full time effort since 2003 - literally years of effort have gone into creating this content.
That’s why my books are not free and I offer site access plans instead of running ads. I don't like ads either – don't really care for subscriptions, hence the Forever Access Plan and longer Annual Plan(s). Rather, it’s reader-supported. Meaning, I need visitors like you to send me money. Not a lot of money. And not every visitor. Which visitors? Only the ones who enjoy the site and find value in the information.

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 website has been grinding along in one form or another along since 1995, the ukulele part has 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 website, 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, performance, and research and make it available. All in the service of your quest to be a better musician, enjoy the ukulele more, or just having more fun in what you are doing.
My goal is to deliver and present this material with a high standard of quality typically associated with traditional printed, mass-produced books by traditional publishers. All 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 – yours truly. And thanks to a few trusted fellow musicians, family, and friends to review before a book is released to wild.
Your purchase supports all that it takes to keep this site going. And, a membership is the best way to do that.
