Halifax Ukulele Gang Clubs
The purpose of Halifax Ukulele Gang (H.U.G.) is to have fun, learn how to play ukulele, and grow as musicians. You can attend without owning or having picked up a musical instrument. If you have always wanted to play a musical instrument but have thought it was too difficult, then the Ukulele is the instrument for you. It’s a very easy and fun instrument to learn to play. We play and sing songs together, learn new songs and help beginners learn their way around the ukulele.
James Hill Musicians
How does a kid from Canada become what the Honolulu Star-Bulletin calls a “rare peer” of Hawaii’s premier ukulele players? James grew up nearly three thousand miles east of Honolulu in the town of Langley, British Columbia, where ukulele instruction has been mandatory in many schools since the late 1970s. To his fourth grade classmates, the ukulele was a means to an end, a way for them to dip their toes into the vast ocean of music. For James, the uke was a sea of possibilities unto itself and inside its tiny wooden shell he saw his life in music. He was hooked.
James Hill Ukulele Initiative Schools
The purpose of the James Hill Ukulele Initiative (JHUI) is to promote and celebrate the ukulele.

The JHUI advocates the use of the ukulele as a platform for music literacy and supports the growth and creation of new ukulele repertoire and approaches to performance.

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
