Kirk makes the lesson fun, educational and playable for all who attend! We loved it! Also get to try out a variety of instruments during the class. Can purchase with a discount after class.

Of course, you expect ukuleles and lessons, and the store offers that... and much more! Vintage vinyls, hand-dyed yarn, glass guitar picks, Indian saris recycled into wraps and throws, and a very cool atmosphere... stop by and relax for a while!

Happened upon Hanalei Strings (as most would while perusing Hanalei's shops) and admired its beautiful (in looks and sound) ukuleles (& yarns). Later on, happened to notice an email from AirBnB sent to me listing Hanalei Strings as a highly recommended 'thing to do' -...More

It's not too late to learn to play an instrument. We dropped by just to look at ukeleles as it is a very Hawaii thing to do. The staff was very friendly and told us that there was a ukelele lesson that night. (offered 3...More

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
