    Michael H. and Markus M. - Austria 4 September 2012 (lesson 27 August) "The ukulele lesson with Mele was a birthday gift to our friend Marcus (right person in the picture) who joined us in Maui during our vacations. Markus and me are both guitar players and the lesson with Mele was the first lesson with a ukulele. We started with basics on how to hold the ukulele and how to play it right. After that, we learned the basic chords and played several songs with Mele who gave us great instructions and also sings during the playing. Mele is a great teacher. She gave us a lot of background information and hints during the lesson which improves the understanding and quality of playing ukulele. We really enjoyed the private lesson and highly recommend Mele for anyone who would like to learn or improve playing ukulele in Maui (during vacations or not)."
