Ukulele Classes And The 'Jumping Fleas'

Locals learned how to play the adopted Hawaiian for the first time at Fairfield Civic Center Library Tuesday.

What do jumping fleas have to do with ukuleles? Well that's what ukulele means in Hawaiian, named for the way a player's fingers seem to jump across the strings.

Ukulele master Izi Holokahi held a class at the Fairfield Civic Center Library as part of his mission of getting people together through music.

Watch the video to see how the class went from no knowledge to playing a song at the end!
