Hiya, pleased to meet you. Stukulele became my 'persona' when I became a ukulele instructor in 2011 (not to be confused with Stu Fuchs who is a mentor of mine and a mighty fine player and teacher). I am from Mullumbimby, Northern New South Wales, Australia and a James Hill Ukulele Initiative Certified Level 3 teacher.
I began playing ukulele at age 42 when I was gifted a uke for fathers day. Things have not been the same ever since. My 6 year old daughter landed me my first teaching job at her primary school… then came community colleges… after 4 terms my students asked where do we go now now? A monthly UKE NIGHT – Uke Mullum lead by my partner Miss Amber and me.. 'Stukulele' was born in July 2011 in the middle of our winter… nearly 200 people showed up on a Wednesday night.
Since then I have been creating monthly themed UKE NIGHTS which consists of choosing a theme, then picking 20 + songs that fit the theme to create a songbook. Then I assemble the best vocalists and musicians to present the themed set live for an audience of folk who sing and strum along. It’s a month long process in which I learn and teach songs that most often I have never played or sometimes even heard of.
Why you may ask? Because I love it. Music is the language of love and it keeps your brain active, staving off all the ravages of old age. The Ukulele just makes the whole process so enjoyable and achievable. Come with me every month, be involved in choosing the monthly themes.. discover and learn new songs. Broaden you repertoire, your mind, ukulele skills, compassion and speak the language of love and be a part of a community of like minded folk.
