    Red face Heya From Canada!

    I'm Sarah, and the first time I played the ukulele was when I was about 10 years old, when my mom signed me up for lessons at school. There were only a few lessons, and once they were over I stopped playing for 6 years.

    It wasn't until this summer, in July, when I started playing again. I did volunteering in this youth group and a volunteer buddy of mine brought his ukulele. I was so intrigued by it I picked up my old ukulele, which I haven't used since elementary school, and started playing again.

    Since then, the instrument has brought so much joy into my life, I doubt I'd be the same person I am now without the ukulele. The uke has really brought out the musical person in me as well, and has gave me so much confidence to perform music-- in fact, this December I'll be performing in my school's holiday assembly with my ukulele

    I currently own an orange Mahalo soprano ukulele, and I already asked my parents for a new, higher quality instrument this Christmas.

    I've been wanting to get involved with a ukulele community, and I'm excited to get more involved in this forum

    (man, I didn't expect to write such a long post lol)

    Hi Sarah, and welcome back to Ukulele World! and welcome to UU.
    Do you have any suggestions as to how we could get ukulele class introduced into American schools?
    Kids need uke more than ever!
