"Hello, it's me - The Ukulele Teacher!"

But you can call me John!

For over a decade I've posted ukulele tutorials on my YouTube channel, where I've amassed over 1.4 million subscribers.

It's been a lot of fun, but now I want to find out more about other ukulele players and personalities, and that's why I started this podcast: Ukulele Tales.

Every week I have a face-to-face conversation with one of the top stars in the ukulele world and find out what makes them tick. I've already spoken to James Hill, Jake Shimabukuro, Bernadette Teaches Music, as well as Grammy award-winning musicians Bakithi Kumalo (Paul Simon's Graceland) and Danny Weinkauf (They Might Be Giants).

Got an idea for a future guest or want to send me a message to read on the show? Drop me an email!
