Anyone doing this? Any suggestions on method book or other experiences. I live in a small town and might teach in my home but also the next bigger town 30 mi. down the road at a music store.
Thoughts?

I like Tonya's method. Tonya's compiled a beginners ukulele lesson and other lessons that work very well:

"Ukulele for Dummies" book is pretty helpful.

Ditto on 'Ukulele In The Classroom. James is the best teacher I have ever seen. He knows his stuff and that stuff is in 'Ukulele In The Classroom. He does teacher training too: http://www.ukuleleintheclassroom.com/certification/index.htm

I considered doing this for seniors. Was going to use Uncle Rod's Stuff and as a play book, The Daily Ukulele. I'm going to check out Ukulele Tonya's stuff as I haven't seen it yet. Good luck

Update: Just checked out Ukulele Tonya's site....really nice. I think I'd use it along with the Daily Ukulele
