I had our first book signing at Cups Coffee on the USC campus. It was a great success. I gave many mini-lessons, introducing people to the ukulele, and sold several books.People signed up for our e-mail list and took business cards. It was a lot of fun introducing people who are new to the ukulele to the wonders of this little instrument!
California, Here I come! Right back where I started from. I’m going to USC to do a book signing at Cups Coffee on the USC campus. While I am there I will sign books and perform and teach songs from our book. If you are in Southern California, feel free to check it out!
Our how to play the ukulele ebook moves a major step towards completion. The lovely and talented Belinda Pepper of Red Swallow Design has finished our cover! Here it is:
Lots of factors go into creating an ebook cover – should look good at small sizes, and be clear image of what the book is about. We were kind of going for a retro look because ukulele seems sort of retro to us. Also, since most of the songs are folk songs, we thought the retro feel of the cover fit in with that really well.
What do you think? Let us know!
Jenny has uploaded all the instructional videos to her school site to get ready for the students coming back next month. Next, she will upload them to howtoplayuke.com, so that our new subscribers can get started on learning ukulele.

We’ve finished writing a rough draft of our eBook: 21 Songs in 6 Days; Learn Ukulele the Easy Way! We hope to have it ready to publish in a few weeks. Stay posted and you may be able to get a copy for free!
Here’s Claire helping Jenny write the book.
Hi there, and welcome to our uke site. Most ukulele books and videos are just TOO HARD – they assume you have played guitar, or know how to tell a capo from a caper.
Jenny and I are writing an Ebook designed to teach you to play 21 ukulele songs in 6 days, even if you’ve never played any music before! This site is the companion to our upcoming Ebook which takes you from the very beginning: how to hold the uke properly, simple strums, then one chord at a time, starting with the easiest possible chords.
