In the Ching Young plaza in Hanalei, this is a fun place to check out and browse, even though you may not play the instruments. Cool lighting, old vinyl albums, percussion “rattles”, even a few banjos...Music playing, beautiful string instruments hung in a long row...More

I went to the store seeking ukulele lessons and fell in love with their entire concept of plucking strings and crafting strings. They were very helpful with beginning ukulele lessons and the vibe in the store is such that you didn't want to leave. Thank...More

My wife and signed up for a ukulele lesson and had a blast. Our instructor (Ipo?) was very good and very patient. It was a fun way to spend an evening. My wife bought some lovely hand dyed wool as well.

Nice little music shop, specializing in ukuleles of all types and shapes, some expensive made of Koa wood, and some not so expensive. They also sold Martin guitars, and picks of various sorts as well as giving ukulele lessons. Very helpful staff.
