Mike Lynch aka "UKULELE MIKE" received his B.A. in music education from St. Martin’s University and a second B.A. in composition from The Cornish School of Allied Arts in Seattle, WA USA. Mike taught classroom music for over 40 years from preschool through University, is a multi-instrumentalist and a composer of worship music. His hymns can be found in numerous hymnals and are very familiar to congregations throughout the United States. Mike is seen and followed by literally thousands of people globally through his popular You Tube instructional videos.

Ukulele Mike passed away unexpectedly Tuesday morning, January 2, 2018. He is survived by Collene Sinclair Lynch, his loving wife of 47 years, his children and other family members.

Mike loved playing the ukulele (and just about any other instrument he could get his hands on)! He considered himself a teacher, rather than a performer, and strove to make music accessible to students of all levels.

He was devoted to you-his followers and friends around the world-on the web and YouTube.

Please note that Collene intends to continue Ukulele Mike’s commitment to his Ukulele fans and followers. All music and songbooks, etc. will continue to be available through the Order page (old store page). A complete Catalog is available to view and download.

We thank you for all your loving tributes to him; it means a great deal to us all! Together, with just 4 strings, let us build a world of peace! Mahalo!
