Plateaus in your (or your students') progress are natural. We've all been there. Frustrating as it is, hitting the occasional plateau is just part of the learning process. Thankfully, there are many "plateau busters" available to both teachers and students alike. A plateau buster is an idea, a technique, an approach... anything that renews a person's love for learning music.
Welcome to the Spring 2011 issue of Ukulele Yes!. This issue has plenty of springtime goodies for all, starting with a feature article by Gordon and Char Mayer of Mya-Moe Ukuleles about how to take care of your ukulele and how to repair minor damage (great tips for any teacher who has ever heard "my tuners keep slipping" or "my strings are buzzing!"). We also have an interview with ukulelist/teacher/bassist Steve Boisen and a free arrangement of the Peter, Paul and Mary hit The Cruel War.
