Chechout the Ko'olau Guitar & Ukulele listing for an idea of what I can do. I'm a big fan of their instruments and play a custom Ko'olau CS Tenor, actually have two as one is a back up in training.

from the Ralph Shaw web site

Ralph Shaw divides his time between recording music CDs, making DVDs (on how to play the ukulele), songwriting and live performance and is well known as Vancouver’s King of the Ukulele! His earliest employment in show business was as a children’s entertainer known as Ralph the Clown (motto = Making the World Laugh – music included no batteries required) Ralph the Clown. In 1990 he discovered the ukulele and along with it a love of some of the great songs of the 20s, 30s and 40s. His grandfather owned a 1920’s ukulele and this was probably Ralph’s earliest inspiration to play the instrument which the Hawaiians call the Jumping Flea.

In 1998 he released his first CD King of the Ukulele (a collection of his favourite songs of the Tin Pan Alley era). It was received to critical acclaim from both customers and the media.

The Ukulele Entertainer##### Checkout Ralph’s **The Ukulele Entertainer** - *Inspired Ideas to Maximize your Music*. This is a great newsletter that is well written with a lot of valve able advice.

His second CD Table For Two came out in 2002. This production, which features several songs written and co-written by Ralph, has also had regular play on national CBC Radio. Ralph Shaw CDs & purchase info Ralph spent the years 2003 to 2005 focussing his energies on teaching the ukulele. Adult classes were taught at Vancouver’s Moveable Music School and many workshops were taught at festivals all over North America. He also taught a regular class of Kids at the Wondertree Learning Centre. Products of his teaching time include 3 best-selling Ukulele DVDs: The Complete Ukulele Course (on DVD, VHS or CD-Rom!) (2003), The Complete Ukulele Course for Kids (2004) and the NEW DVD! Essential Strums for the Ukulele (2005). The DVDs are distributed to stores all over the USA, Canada and Europe.

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
