Marcy Marxer is a master multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, performer, and instructor, with over three decades of experience bringing the fun of folk and roots music to audiences and students around the world through her duo with Cathy Fink and through other projects. We’re lucky to have her as our Ukulele instructor on Peghead Nation.

While Marcy was teaching a lesson on playing a fingerstyle melody on the ukulele, she played a great version of the Johnny Mercer standard “Autumn Leaves,” and you can learn that in her course here on Peghead Nation.
