Q1: What is this commercial about?
Once again, the question, Jeff?
What is this commercial about?
Carolyn, did you happen to catch the right answer for this?
Yeah, I think so.
Let’s hear it.
What is commercial about?
It’s about “The Ohana Music Store.” It gives group ukulele lessons every Wednesday and Saturday.
So, ohana is, ah, Hawaiian for family.
Yeah. Isn’t that right, Carolyn?
Yeah, I agree. Sounds good to me.
We are all aloha people here.
So, we can go on to the next question, right?
Q2: What’s the lesson fee?
Sounds like a fun school there.
Sounds like a place I’d like to go.
So back to the question, Carolyn?
Right. What’s the lesson fee?
Jeff, did you happen to catch the right answer for this?
Let’s hear it.
Very economical, $10 per lesson.
My big question here is what if you don’t have the musical instrument, ukulele?
Well, if you don’t have a ukulele, the store will let you borrow a used one.
Problem solved. Or you can buy a new one for as little as $35.
That’s a good price.
That’s going for $35.
Yes. I’m sure they’re more expensive, but you can buy them for $35, yeah. And evidently they also sell songbooks.
Oh, yeah, that’s right. ‘cause he got one on sale.
How much was it worth?
$12, I think.
Another good price.
Yeah, so they probably sell sheet music, and songbooks, and chord books.
Right. Q3. What else does this store do?
So back to the 3rd question.
All right. What else does this store do?
Carolyn, What else do they do?
Ah, They sell new and used musical instruments.
Oh, I see.
That could be their main thing, or,
Probably, ??? lessons are 分かりません。
I wouldn’t think so. Yeah, since the lessons are not very expensive.
It’s kind of a bonus.
To get people come in.
I wonder if I could get a Hawaiian made guitar there, maybe a used one.
Hawaiian made guitar?
Is it special?
I think they’re a little smaller, many of the mermaid koa wood, ‘cause you can only get koa wood.
Koa wood is so expensive.
Yeah, probably be more than $35.
I wonder when their school hours, or business hours.
They are not open that early in the morning. They don’t open until 11.
No, but they don’t close until 9, which is
And open every day.
So, Ken, Jeff, do you have a ukulele, do you own one?
I don’t have one now. But I started on the ukulele, before I started the guitar.
Oh, you’re just like me.
That was my first instrument.
Yeah, my sister used to play the ukulele.
So I borrowed it. And I had a good time.
My fourth-grade’s teacher was from Hawaii. And she taught us how to play the ukulele.
Was she? Oh, interesting.
How about you, Carolyn?
No. But I love to listen to the music. It’s beautiful.
I mean, I played one, but not well.
Oh, you did?
Yeah, when I was little, but don’t think I had made any notes. Just, they’re fun. ‘cause it’s so small and, you know.
Maybe you should take it up again.
I know a good school.
Well, that’s about it for today. So before we say, aloha, here are three things we’d like you to do. The first one is –
And keep on smiling.
