    Default Ukulele players of the Philippines ! A question ?

    Aloha ! Do you guys know anyone or anything that offers ukulele lessons here? My dad wants me to take my ukulele like Jake serious . I sorta do too, i mean i fell in love with the instrument.

    So know any? If there really aren't any ways , I'll give online tutorials a shot.

    None that i know of. Much of the Filipino crowd here still thinks our Ukulele is just a toy. I myself is just self taught. I just practice everyday and jam with great guys from the church band who are great guitar players. I'm also really eyeing on having a go with the UUUniversity starting this May. Maybe we'll be classmates.

    I know right ? Most ukuleles sold here are those simple toy-like ones. Except in some great music stores like Lazer, it's where I bought mine. Guess if there really aren't any, I'd give the UUUniversity a shot. And that would be awesome !

    great to encounter a fellow pinoy ukulele player. my first ukulele is bought in lazer as well. we might have the same uke. it's a samick greg bennett uk70. for my second one, i took the plunge and ordered from ebay. the third one is another local brand. a lumanog. it was gifted to me on my birthday. so now i have three ukes. way too much ukes for my musical skill level. that's why im also considering UUUniversity.

    hey i can't enroll in uuu. i was stuck on the "state" drop down field. coming from the philippines, i wouldn't be able to fill that out. there's no field for international enrollees to fill out.

    Hey guys,

    I'm john and I am a filipino as well. I think it is a good idea to enroll to UUU, considering that Aldrine is a very good teacher! Myself is going to enroll to the music theory program because I bought Aldrine's Ukulele Solos dvd and it is pretty much the same as UKE101 and 102.
    You guys need to email one of the UUU's staffs and let them know what program you are interested in, then they will send you an email with a paypal link so that u can purchase the lesson.

    Anyways good luck and see you at campus!

    Cheers
    John

    I wonder where Mele http://www.meleukulele.com/ has their 'ukuleles made? They are awesome and reasonably priced relatively speaking. I heard they were made in Cebu City though not sure if that helps any. I see some 'ukuleles on the wall upper left at beginning of this video, Ferangeli Guitar Factory:


    Here's a lead:

    I bought the ukulele at a place called Opon Guitars in Mactan. It cost P1,500 and this was five years ago.

    Hi kababayans,

    We have a lot fo good ukes in Cebu. In fact, our own ukes were inspired by the craftsmanship of uke makers in Mactan island. I have posted some info in the New membership forum entiltled " New island ukes from the Phiippines.Please let me know if you need further assitance. Salamat....
