Mike Staude is a primary school music specialist at Flinders Park Primary School in Albany. He became extremely keen on the educational potential of the ukulele after receiving one as a gift from a former guitar student.

He has developed an individual approach that draws on other ukulele methods as well as the Orff and Kodaly philosophies. Mike has been sharing the joy of the ukulele, the world’s happiest instrument, with the young at heart since 2006 and with members of the community at the Albany Summer School since 2009.
