Ukulele lessons offered locally

By Jesica Parsley

Joyce Flaugher wants to give the local communities a chance to learn a unique instrument and have fun in the process. Flaugher, a Rockport resident, learned to play the ukulele during her time living in Hawaii where she was a Hawaiian dancer. “This ukulele group needed a dancer,” Flaugher said. “While I was waiting for the next dance, I picked up the ukulele, started playing around with it and ever since I have been playing.” She lived on and off in Hawaii for eight years and moved back inland in 1980. “I have a Hawaiian spirit,” Flaugher said. “This area is the closest thing I can get to Hawaii in Texas.”
