Ukulele Guild of Hawaii
The Ukulele Guild of Hawaii (UGH) began as a group of ’ukulele builders sharing a common interest and desire to exchange information, techniques and experiences in the early 1990’s. In September, 2001, a group of 18 people led by founder Mike Chock met to officially create a membership forum. The make-up and direction of the Guild was created and steps to form a non-profit corporation were initiated. A year later in 2001, the Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort hosted the Inaugural ‘Ukulele Guild of Hawaii Exhibition and Conference.
Ukulele Hall of Fame
The Ukulele Hall of Fame Museum was founded in 1996 in Duxbury, Massachusetts. The Museum is a non-profit organization with federal 501 (c) non-profit status. Our Mission is to document, preserve and promote the history of the ukulele, its players and makers as well as to inspire and engage people everywhere in the perpetuation of the ukulele and ukulele music through performances and exhibits. The Museum is currently in search of an appropriate public site to house the collection of books, tapes, records, CDs, photographs, and uke ephemera. We welcome your input and gratefully acknowledge your support through member dues, donations, and purchases from the Hall of Fame Museum Shop.
BMI supports its songwriters, composers and publishers by taking care of an important aspect of their careers – getting paid. BMI supports businesses and organizations that play music publicly by offering blanket music licenses that permit them to play nearly 13 million musical works. Both relationships save each time and money.

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
