Welcome to the main site of Curt Sheller and Curt Sheller Publications. A small (me, myself and I) 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.
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.
Updates and new information posted just about everyday.
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
New Releases, Updates and Changes
Visit the changes pages for the latest. With over 1000 pages of content on my site it can get a little hard to track just what is available, new or updated. It's even hard for me to keep up.
Totally Random Collection of Stuff
Here is a totally random collection of pages, links and sections of the site.
Theses are section of the site that have been rolled into other sections or section that haven;t been updated in a while. Or, section that don't have a public, main site pages access.
A few of the pages have been updated to the new theme - but not all pages. So there might be a few broken pages, images, and an old look.
Collection of information on programming languages I use, have used or trying to learn.
My personal racewalking pages. Having discovered the Olympic sport of walking in the around 1985, I've been hooked ever since (on and off).
