We really like Luna & Kala, but Hola and Donner brands also stay in tune well. Your student will need a soprano, concert or tenor model (not baritone). Soprano is the smallest, then concert, tenor is the largest of the three. Students tend to outgrow their soprano ukuleles quickly so you may want to start with a concert model. Any of the local music stores can get you setup. For online options... Musicians Friend, Sweetwater and Amazon offer a good selection.
Yes, but please confirm availability with us first in case the class is already full. No walk-ins. The music lessons are tailored to each student individually so beginners will not feel as if they are falling behind the other students. Returning students will not have to start back at the beginning of the first workbook, but will be able to continue advancing from where they left off.
The insect, yes. However, the year we started our business was extremely rainy so the name was inspired by my wife's favorite rain coat that she wore almost everyday! I was sitting in our living room with our IT guy trying to come up with a catchy business name when we saw Shannan out in the yard wearing her... Yellow Jacket. :D
