( Me, myself and I ) is-are an independent, by choice, publishing company catering to the needs of musicians, guitar players and ukulele players worldwide with the resources and information needed to develop as a musician.
Curt Sheller Publications was created by Curt Sheller (me) in 1995 and has been on the web since. I have over 40 years of playing experience and I have been involved in private music education for the past 20 years.
With my re-introduction to the ukulele after a 20 year break and taking advantage of my jazz guitar skills, I began pursuing the potential of the ukulele. Researching the field I saw very little material organized at a level that works for intermediate to advanced players. I have developed an international reputation as a ukulele expert having written over 30 books on the subject of ukulele and over 10 books on guitar.
The LearningUkulele.com is a dedicated site just for All Things Ukulele - sort of what this CurtSheller.com site ultimately morphed into. I just go so hooked on ukulele. The ukulele portion of the site grew the over 500 lessons on-line, every major ukulele luthier and manufacture, strings, cases, gig bags, history, festivals, clubs and more. So it was time for a dedicated site of its own.
LearningUkulele.com is all the ukulele content from this site, my CurtSheller.com site. I originally just started adding ukulele content to the site when I was re-introduced to the ukulele over 10 years ago. I grew exponentially to what it is today. Thousands and thousands for files, images, mp3 files and pages of content. When I do a full update and upload all the files for curtsheller.com it is over 30,0000 file.
You can checkout my Music, Art, Publishing and Programming bios at: Bios. Have worn a lot of different hats over my adult working career – music and art has always been a big part of it.

If I'm not teaching or gigging I'm working on the web site.
Here is what Peter Rhee said about my (Curt Sheller) books.
"Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books!" - Peter Rhee
