My husband and I have zero musical ability and absolutely loved our evening at Hanalei Strings! Kirk was a terrific teacher who made us all feel right at home. He was encouraging, fun and just a nice person to spend an evening with. Highly recommend this experience!

Take the ukulele lesson! Best $20 I’ve spent while on vacation! Great teacher in an enchanting environment. We had so much fun!

I’ve never picked up any instrument before but now I can play several tunes. What a wonderful and fun time we had. Tora is sweet and a wealth of information. Kirk teaches in a way that anyone can learn and gets the whole group involved. I recommend taking the lesson, you’ll really learn to play the Ukulele, and have a really fun night. Thank you so much for helping us make memories.

This was a great find! Our family of five found it to be an exceptional hour of fun and accessible instruction for all levels. It was laid back, relaxed and entertaining even to the one of us who just watched and listened. Thanks Hanalei Strings for making our last evening on Kauai a memorable one.

Awesome experience! Kirk was our teacher and delivered instruction in a very fun, dynamic, and highly interactive way. He was great at adapting to his students’ learning paces and I can definitely say that I walked away equipped with the basics for uke playing! I got to take home the handout from his lesson, which is complete with some basic chords and chord progression - now to begin my practice!

This was a really cool, fun and enriching experience. Kirk packed a ton of great instruction into a short time frame, we were actually playing simple tunes a half hour into the lesson. He demystified the process of learning music and made us feel like, with some nominal practice, we could all play the Ukulele. Well worth the time and money.
