Albany - A Uke Maker and a School visit...
In Albany we're lucky enough to be staying with John Maddison, who is a wonderful ukulele maker, and his instruments sound lovely indeed... he's also a great bloke, and we'll do a little interview with him before we leave.

We also visited Flinders Park Primary School and music teacher Mike Staude (who we met in Denmark and whose energy, enthusiasm and teaching skills are inspiring...).
The kids were wonderful, and the entire school uses uke in their curriculum... thanks to Mike!

Afterwards we visited Eric Ward of Wards Music Centre, who tells us he will soon be supplying every school in Albany with ukes!
