I have recently taken on learning ukulele and am totally enjoying being a beginner. LOVE being a beginner!

When you have been an accomplished singer/musician in past, perfectionism can creep in and paralyze, if you have been away from music for a long time like I have been.

This is why in part, I chose ukulele. I have not played a ukulele since maybe grade 4? (in what grade did we learn ukulele?) I have no clue how to play one and that is refreshing and freeing.

One other reason I chose ukelele is I that love Hawaii! … but also, the ukulele is such an incredibly HAPPY instrument, and I find that, as many others do, for me it is impossible to stay sad, depressed, lonely, or to experience any negative emotion, and play the ukulele at the same time.

I am loving the journey so far, I have a long ways to go, and for now my ukulele playing is just for me and for only in private, but what I can share, is my JOY in that I started.

I encourage everybody to be a beginner at something, anything; it’s good for the brain, heart and soul.

And so I leave you with a beautiful rendition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Israel “IZ” Kamakawiwo’ole with his ukulele.

Always Love,
Brenda
