from the Michelle Kiba web site
Michelle Kiba‘s ability to think big has resulted in an amazing career as a full time ukulele entertainer, recording artist, music educator and music therapist. Michelle first embarked on a creative path as a visual artist, in graphic design. But a repetitive wrist injury forced her to make a drastic career change. Michelle became a certified nursing assistant, earned a teaching credential, and eventually took a job as an Activity Director. It was through her work that Michelle’s inner performer found an unlikely outlet.
“Sometimes a I was still just learning how to play the ukulele. But the seniors were so appreciative and I discovered the ukulele was a great reminiscence tool. My friendly little instrument and music started many fun topics of discussion. The seniors were particularly fond of Hawaiian music so I taught them wheel chair hula. Other activity directors started offering to pay me to come and play for their seniors too. It wasn’t long before my day job got in the way of a very unexpected career path. It’s incredibly heartwarming to watch my listener’s faces light up or sometimes becoming teary-eyed, as I sing love songs or tunes from their pasts. I see many of my clients weekly and over the years they have become my adopted kupuna, (beloved aunties and uncles).”

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
