Aded New and Updated Lessons Page

Published: Mar 26, 2021

Making a push to get to the 700 lessons on LearnignUkulele.com.

So to help you find the new and updated lessons I put seperate pages up for each. New Lessons => and Updated Lessons =>.

I (Curt), started LearningUkulele.com way back in 2003. LearningUkulele.com was a result of my return and new found love for the ukulele after playing guitar (since 9yrs old) and serious studing of jazz guitar since 1978. That and my first web sitez, guitarresources.com and then jazzguitarresources.com.


Piano for Ukulele Players

Published: Mar 22, 2021

Happy Spring in the Northern Hemisphere

Did you every want to play something when you walk by that piano and don;t know what to do?

Here a couple of lessons regarding some very basic thinkgs you can do on the piano:

There are few things that we can learn in piano that will help our Ukulele playeing. Simply search for "piano" on the [Lessons Search Page](/lessons/search.

Piano is a very visual instrument as far as learning the Principles of Music.


The Ides of March Updates

Published: Mar 15, 2021

The “Ides of March” are upon us — they weren't so good for Caesar. But, there are great around here at LearningUkulele.com. I, Curt have been busy cleaning up the site, putting in some security to handle those pesky Russian spam artist that have been spamming the sire with registrations. I let my guard down for a second during one of the updates and turned left a loophole for them to get in.

Site Searches

The Searching on the site is really shaping up nice with MeiliSearch, a cool open-source search engine that allows “Fuzzy Searches”, where even if you're prone to typos, as I am you can still find what you are looking for. Next goal is to index the entire site to use MeilSearch.

We are fast approaching 700 lessons on the site, and I'll be releasing a new book, a Baritone edition of one of my Advance Chords for Ukulele books soon.

Some of the sections that have seen some minor updates are the “Blues Ukulele” and “Jazz Ukulele” part of the site.

Ukulele Festivals

With 2020 and 2021 wrecking havoc on the “Ukulele Festival” scene you can guess the Festival section needs some updates and this is in the works for 2021 as them hopefully the COVID-10 pandemic stats to wane. Let me know of any update.

Site Security

All FREE site member will need to verify their email address to access sertain sections of the site. This is an effort to weed out the spam registration of the past couple of years and registrations that never visited again.

ALL past paid premium members have been automatically verified.


March Updates 2021

Published: Feb 27, 2021

One side benefit of the 2020/21, COVID-19 worldwide pandemic is more time indoors and updating the LearningUkulele.com site.

New Features

Site Updates

Updates to these sections of the site:

Ukulele Festival Listings Status

Ever since I started UkuleleResources.com wayback in 2003 which morphed into LearningUkulele.com. And before 2003 I had GuitarResources and JazzGuitarREsources.com going since 1998 or so. I've used the ukulele sites as a platform to help other ukulele players, list ukulele resources and events around the world and generally collect massive amounts of information for myself and shared it with the ukulele community. I also use is as a way learn new "tech", as I do all the coding, hosting, and development of the site.

As the site has grown, so has the time I put into it and the one area that suffered in 2020 was the Ukulele Festival's section. The COVID-19 worldwide pandemic didn't help in that area.

2020 and it's looking like 2021 are not great years for in-person Ukulele Festivals. Most have gone "Virtual". A couple countries have done well in their management of the pandemenic and have started to open up for live, in-person events - most haven't. And, I haven't keep up with all the changes to the festival listings I have on the site as the changes where a lot.

I do visit ever festival's web site that is on their listing to keep up with changes. Most have not kept up on their end or let me know of any changes. Hopefully things will start to get back to "normal" near then end of 2021 and starting 2022.

If anyone have information on their favorite festival(s) - let me know and I'll, hopefully get some time to get things updated.

This is basically a one-man show with me, myself, and I doing all the work. So bear with me as I hopefully catch up with all the changes.

Thanks for your support of Learning Ukulele with Curt, a.k.a., LearningUkulele.com

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 bestGlen Hirabayashi, The Aloha Boys
