"One of the greats of this traditionally Hawaiian instrument" (CBC Radio), James Hill has become known worldwide for his imaginative compositions and fearless disregard for the supposed limitations of the ukulele. "I remember the first time I heard Jimi Hendrix," writes David Kidney of the Green Man Review, "he did things with an electric guitar that I hadn't imagined, hadn't thought possible. James Hill does that with the ukulele."
J. Chalmers Doane, often called "The Pied Piper of Halifax", Nova Scotia has introduced thousands of students to the magic of music. It is his profound belief in the value of the ukulele, however, for which he is best known. Doane conceived of the ukulele as a vehicle for musicianship, thus his emphasis on music theory, sight-reading, ear training, singing, solo performance, and ensemble playing. At the same time, Doane saw the ukulele as a serious musical instrument, one capable of expressing a wide range of emotion and providing a great deal of personal joy.
