Linda got interested in playing ukulele when she regularly attended old-time music jams. Tired of being an observer, Linda mentioned to a friend that she wished she had a banjo ukulele to play at the music sessions. Two years later that friend surprised her with a Christmas gift of a 1926 Sears and Roebuck banjo ukulele – the $3 model!

Since 2006, Linda has been a performing member of the Kansas City Ukesters, a ukulele club in Mission, Kansas. She also teaches ukulele workshops at the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas.

Linda’s classes focus on beginning and intermediate students who play soprano, concert and tenor-sized ukuleles. These sessions are tailored to the preferences and interests of the student. Beginning sessions include tuning, entry-level songs, how to learn and remember new songs, and jamming etiquette. Intermediate classes include: songs using more advanced chord progressions, transposing and strum patterns.
