During the summer of 2022, internationally acclaimed ukulele impresario, Paul Moore, developed the ensemble and prepared the children for performances. Paul also founded the group, Ukuleles for Peace which brings together Jewish and Arab children from Israel/Palestine and fosters co-existence among the kids and their families.

Our current teacher is Brian Nicolson who is teaching weekly group classes and preparing the children for concerts.
