In 2016 I had the privilege of spending time with Heidi Litke of Red Sand Ukuleles in Prince Edward Island, Canada. I was there to film Heidi making a ukulele. This later turned into my Online Ukulele Building Course available via my website. Heidi builds world class ukuleles along with her shop manager Rob. She is very active in charity work and gives many of her prized ukes away to help special causes.   
Recently Heidi was interviewed by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation about her passion for building a playing ukuleles. Here is the link to the interview. 
There was also a TV spot that you can see here. Heidi's interview appears at about 19:05. 
Heidi's passion for the ukulele is contagious. I highly recommend her Online Ukulele Building Course for anyone wanting to get started building ukuleles. She makes it look easy!
It is also no secret that I recently spent time with world renowned ukulele and guitar maker, Jay Lichty, at his shop in North Carolina. While there I filmed his method of building a world class ukulele with all the bells and whistles: soundport, arm bevel, bound headstock and fretboard etc. It takes ukulele building to the next level! There is something for everyone to learn about making not only ukuleles but  world class instruments in general. I am happy to report that the editing process is almost done and Jay's course will be available soon. 
Here is a sneak peek video where Jay talks about optimum bridge height.
If you are interested in learning to build guitars or just want
to see how I build my guitars then schedule a class with me.
If you are in need of a concert quality classical or steel string
guitar then let me know as I would love to build a guitar for you.

Thank you,
