A few words about us
Who is the Ukulele teacher and what's his background?
Mr Richard Chong, 65, is a full-time music instructor and a ukulele guru, as his students call him. In his younger days, he play in the music bands called The Crescendos and The Falcons. He started teaching the instrument five years ago, while doing missionary work involving orphans from countries such as Cambodia. Today he still active doing charity work, such as teaching in the girls 'home and the blind. He also travel to Vietnam to bring the joy of ukulele music to the churches there.
Every fortnight, he conducts a jamming session for a group of enthusiasts, comprising both men and women, mostly middle-aged or older.
Thanks to Mr Richard Chong's enthusiasm and love for ukulele, many schools, churches and organisations in Singapore are incorporating the lovely ukulele instrument in their music curriculum. Some of his students have graduated to become ukulele teachers.
