I teach instrumental music in an arts magnet school and it's a long day. I love teaching but am nearing 60 and will go when that happens. I took up finger style ukulele the last few years and really enjoy that. An amazing instrument when played by a master, check out Jake Shimabukuro or James Hill. You will never look at the uke the same way. Nice thing about the uke is you can practice it any time of the day and not bother anyone.
