Meet the folks at The Ukulele Site
We have always been a brick and mortar here on Oahu! We recently moved to the North Shore - Take the first exit for Haleiwa coming up the H2 North. We are a 1/4 mile up the road on the right side right after Tesoro Gas Station.
Andrew - Hi folks, and thanks for checking out our site! I was able to start Hawaii Music Supply with my wife after working with my family for over 10 years, finishing and setting up custom Ko’olau Ukuleles. My goal for The Ukulele Site was to educate, entertain, and show you the best ukes in every price range.All of us at The Ukulele Site are knowledgeable and dedicated to giving you the best help and advice. We want you to get an ukulele you will love forever! There are master ukulele makers right on our island and affordable options from around the world. What you find here is the best value ukuleles on the market and I know at HMS we’re offering the best deal. Our setup work is what consumes the majority of our time. No one else includes this level of service or has as much experience as our team does. Our setup work is done on even the $50 ukes! That, to me, is spreading the aloha! You can email me direct at: firstname.lastname@example.org
|Jennifer - My wife! She does the book-keeping, marketing, editing, and helps run the day to day aspects of our business. All the while, running our household. (Our Children, Zephyr, above with me, and Amelie, pictured here with my wife) Without her, well…I’d go crazy!|
|Mike - It's so exciting to now be working with Music Guy Mic! Mike, as we call him, also known as MGM, pioneered the selling of a properly setup ukulele no matter what the price point. He has traveled extensively to ukulele festivals, exhibitions and factories world over. His desire to provide personal one and one service and to know his customers has proven an invaluable asset. His knowledge of the ukulele market is a resource we have enjoyed for years. In effort to become the best of the best in ukulele, The Ukulele Site welcomes Music Guy Mic as an addition no money can buy. This partnership will provide The Ukulele Site customers with added attention for advice and help in finding that perfect ukulele. Email: email@example.com|
|Aaron - Our very own in-house Ukulele expert and internet educator! His YouTube lessons have over 3 million views! The cool thing about Aaron is that he’s really smart but also very humble. He enjoys helping people in the store and has over 30 guitar and ukulele students scheduled throughout the week as well. Take advantage of our free lessons, this guy can help!|
|Joel - has probably “set up” more ukes than anyone else in Hawaii. And he is only 21 years old! After 4 years with “Music Guy Mic“, Joel estimates already setting up over 10,000 Kala ukuleles. That’s just one brand!! Joel does the majority of our setup work here and is highly respected by all of us, even at such a young age. He is a key player here. So don’t call and ask for him… he’s too busy!|
|Chris - Chis has worked along side Joel for over three years setting up ukes! We are lucky to have him full time doing great work to make your uke play better!|
|Zach - Singer/songwriter for the duo “Sing the Body” and solo “Zachary Shimizu” projects. Excellent guitar player and great at helping you find what you need.|
|Eli - The other half of Sing the Body. Despite only being in his twenties, Eli has had a lot of experience playing music in many different bands. He seems to be able play whatever he picks up. He may be an hour late, but once he is here he is positive, and very helpful!|
|Mike - Incredible guitarist and musician! His playing and musical mastery is always inspiring. His 10 piece reggae roots band Dubkonscious just came out with their first album! You can find it on iTunes or go to DubKonscious.com. Also, The Mike Love Band is finishing up an album that is gonna be incredible. So keep a look out for that soon as well. At the store Mike repairs guitars and helps people with his extensive instrument and gear knowledge on keys, guitars, effects, recording, and, of course, ukulele.Check out our YouTube channel for more cool videos from the acoustic room.|
|Corey - Corey helps with online lessons and more. Corey is a bit of an anomaly. He can build a computer, surf, and play the same song 100 times in a row. All in the same day. Here Corey plays a Ko’olau guitar.
Many studies have been done within the past 10 years that show playing music benefits children in many ways. It aids academic aptitude in mathematics, science, and the arts, increases scholastic participation, and cultivates concentration and focused listening. Studies have also shown playing music actually improves the health and happiness of adults and seniors, much like exercise does. We help promote music in our area and feel proud of our role in making the world a better place.
