On my birthday, several of my students took me
out to dinner after class. We had a great time
playing our ukuleles and dancing hula while we
waited for the 'ono-licious food to arrive.

Christmas 2003 at Oak tree Villa. Some of my students 
helped me sing Christmas carols for the seniors at this retirement community. "You kids are better than Lawrence Welk." said one of the residents. I took that for a compliment.

Squint your eyes...maybe you'll see yourself in the
crowd. This is after our 2003 Festival of the Cement Ship performance. Joining my students and band were guest from the Hula School of Santa Cruz and the
Pa Hula Ohana Dancers.

The ladies at "Burning Uke" camp out entertain the masses with a simple hula freshly learned that afternoon.

My students receive a certificate of accomplishment at the end of each 6-week course. 

The "masses" as described above. Everyone had a grand time at Burning Uke. It was 3 intensive days and nights of non-stop uke playing, uke burning and, more followed by more uke playing.

My little friend, Miss Erin Baumann dances for the students at Ukulele class. Its a real treat to watch her dance.

My students & I performed a tribute to
paniolos  (Hawaiian cowboys) at the
2003 Northern California Ukulele Festival.

Jim & Liz Beloff perform another fab duet at 
Peter Thomas' annual Ukulele Extravaganza.

That's me, center stage.

2003 concert at Mello Center with my uncle
George Kahumoku Jr. and Wiliam Faulkner.

Taking a break from the excitement at Aloha Music Camp 
on the Big Island in Puna. It took me 2 weeks to recover 
from the sleep deprivation. It was worth it!

"Once in a Blue Moon" featured a solid line-up of  ukuleleists. From left to right, Doug Johnson,
Ukulele Dick, Michelle Kiba and Peggy Reza.

All the way from Tokyo Japan, "Petty Booka" toured the
West coast Dec 2003. I was very honored to be their
opening act in Santa Cruz and San Francisco.

Santa Cruz students, center stage on recital night.

Another proud moment at recital night.
