Ukulele Circle Leader Since 2014
Since 2014, Richard has started and lead a couple of local ukulele circle groups, with a participation of forty members.

One String Harmony Tutorial
When we strum any chord, there are 4 notes we can sing. Learning to sing harmony, is learning how to sing these chord notes that are the basis for the song. This technique is useful when a melody is too high or too low for your voice. Pick one string on your ukulele, that you can sing to comfortably. The notes generated on that one string, are the notes that you sing. View here.
Ukulele Movable Chords
The first chords we learned showed fingering patterns that can be used as Movable Chords that can be played up the neck, where most of us have a lot of unused real estate.
