As was expected, Roy, did a super job yesterday! I told him that he does well because he speaks from his heart . . . !
Before we started our meeting, the principal of Momilani Elementary School, Doreen Higa, who is a member of our Rotary Club, introduced her guest Locke Nishihara who is one of her students. She is also an ukulele student at Roy’s Ukulele Studios. Anyway, she had brought her ukulele with her to hopefully get an opportunity to talk to Roy, which she did, and Roy took the time to work with her prior to his presentation to our Club and as only Roy can do it, presented an impromptu ukulele treat for us . . . 2 songs, which came across so well!
Most obviously, Roy’s presentation was inspiring, perhaps more so because he positively reaches out. He gets the attention of his audience . . . the children, when he makes his presentations at the schools. To me, kinda, “chicken-skin” stuff! And, he kept telling us that he cannot sing . . . he can sing . . . .here he is . . .
He presented “I am What I Am” tshirts – one to Nishihara and the other to a Rotarian, the winner of the “named that tune” game.
And, here is Locke, Roy and Principal Doreen Higa of Momilani Elementary School.
Roy just has a “way” with kids!
