About the show

This is a podcast for players and teachers of the ukulele to improve their skills at doing those things. I cover all sorts of things that I think are interesting and helpful on my journey to become a better uke teacher/player. Sometimes I'll be interviewing great teachers and players, other times I'll just be sharing insights and tips that can help you become a better musician.

Something for everyone

Abe's podcast is a must listen for ukulele players and teachers alike. From his interviews with a veritable who's who of the ukulele world focusing on pedagogy, but not in a boring way, to discussions on making albums, there is something here for every listener. It is simply icing on the cake that Abe is blessed with the quintessential NPR voice!
