About Don Sadler
My interest in ‘ukulele, Hawaiian music and culture, began in the 90’s with visits to the islands. I began playing ‘ukulele in 2002 and later discovered the ‘ukulele classes at the Center where I studied ‘ukulele and Hawaiian music for over ten years. During that time, I performed with the class at community events and festivals in the Bay Area and Hawaii and filled in as a substitute teacher when needed.

In January of 2013, I accepted the position of instructor for the ‘ukulele program. Since then, I have enjoyed teaching beginning and advanced ‘ukulele classes at the Center and leading the class in performances throughout the Bay Area. I also enjoy teaching my “Ukulele 101” workshops for students just beginning their ukulele experiences.

While Hawaiian music has remained my passion, I enjoy exploring other styles of music with the ‘ukulele, sharing what I have learned with others, and continuing to learn and grow as a musician myself. These are the things that keep me energized and committed to teaching ‘ukulele at the Center.
