Board Member

Mike Chock, smitten by the delightful sound and shape of the 'ukulele I fell in love with this unique island kine instrument. All things 'ukulele are way cool and I pursue this passion with my 'Ukulele making School Hana Lima 'Ia, here in the heart of industrial Kalihi passing on to others the love of 'ukulele-making for the past twenty years. The journey is simply fantastic and my advice to all is "jump right on in, get plenty room and the water's fine!"
