Nonprofit organization that embraces the healing power of music by donating ukuleles to hospitalized children. Make a difference by donating at: theukc.org
“To harness the healing power of music by promoting and supporting music therapy programs for hospitalized children, by giving away ukuleles to children in need through music therapy programs and sending the children home with the gift of music for life, and by advocating for the benefits of music therapy.”
In 2010, after experiencing a personal family tragedy and life changing event, Corey embarked on a new journey with the direction of providing community service. He initiated and established the creation of a memorial fund in conjunction with the Make A Wish foundation in honor of his son Jared. At that time, Corey became a volunteer as a “Wish Granter,” providing direct service and personal contact with “Wish Kids” and their families.
In 2012, Corey and his wife Edda relocated to Miami, FL, where he ventured into a new area of volunteer service at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital and Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital. At Joe DiMaggio, he was given the extraordinary opportunity to use his musicianship to aid in the palliative care and treatment of the children and their families. He was asked to join a team of doctors, psychologists, social workers and clergy to provide treatment through guitar playing. This resulted in lowering the rate of respiration and heart rate of patients monitored in intensive care units. He learned the power of music as a healing tool. Corey received the “President’s Volunteer Service Award” with a letter of commendation from President Barack Obama in 2013 for his efforts at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital.

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
Aloha, Curt, All I can say is WOW! What you have accomplished is simply incredible! All the best — Glen Hirabayashi, The Aloha Boys
