    I want to take lessons from someone in San Diego. I would like for them to be:
    1. a quality instructor

    2. have interest and skills in the progressive style uke....like shimabukuro, but obviously not as good...haah. While I respect the historic Hawaiian style , I like more modern songs/styles.

    Any advice? Please help..

    I take classes with Frank Leong out of MiraCosta College in north county San Diego (I listed the current courses available below). Frank is a great instructor and an all around great guy. I really enjoy the classes and have picked up some good, quality information in a short period of time. However, these are group type classes with 20-25 people in each session so it is not an individual type class if that is what you are looking for.


    My other suggestion is possiblly Giacoletti Music Center (http://www.carlsbadmusic.com/) in Carlsbad, CA (also, north county). They sell a ton of ukes and I believe they have lessons playing the ukulele as well. This is more of a 1 on 1 lesson, possibly more expensive but I believe you could taylor the class to your individual needs. Drop them a line if this appears to be what you are looking for.

    I'm looking for a ukulele player for my wedding ceremony music. Wedding is in LaJolla, Labor Day weekend 2009. Know anyone?

    I'd like one or two people to play (two ukuleles or a ukulele and a guitarist), "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and other similar style songs.

    I'm working all Labor Day weekend. The Ukulele Society of America http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/group...ety_of_America played a Hawaiian wedding at the San Onofre beach. There's a nice account of that Hawaiian style wedding here:

    The band that leads MBUS, the Moonlight Beach Serenaders also plays gigs. Here's a video of the Moonlight group:

    Fred Thompson has a Ukulele group in La Jolla:

    There's another small Polynesian group with a uke, a guitar and a hula dancer. I'll search through my card file.

    Almost Islanders are a Top Notch island band in the San Diego area, too. Ric

    Hey kellyjdesign, if you're looking for a band for the reception check us out.

    www.myspace.com/barefootwahines

    We're located in orange county but would probably be willing to travel to La Jolla for a gig. I would have to check with the other band members to make sure we're all available if you're interested. PM me if you'd like more info.
