Sam MarchukWe are pleased to announce the August 2017 Associate of the Month!

Sam Marchuk represented West Music and himself very well recently at the Strathmore Uke and Guitar Summit in North Bethesda, MD in August 2017. He had the opportunity to teach, plan and promote our products at this event.

Cathy Fink, an organizer at Ukefest, wrote, “Sam was a fantastic instructor at our Ukefest this year. He taught a large beginner class and came in VERY prepared, including large chord charts that he put up on the wall. His students LOVED him and told me that all
week long.”

Sam had the opportunity to perform in 2 concerts, including the featured event for “Strathmore Ukefest” on Wednesday evening for which he was the opener. He played 2 instrumental versions of the Beatles songs — “Yesterday” and “Hey Jude.” The concert brought in about 2,500 people from the community and featured food trucks along with several music vendors. Quite a blast!

At the festival, he also had an assortment of ukuleles, books, and accessories to sell. He already has plans on what additional
items to bring to the next Uke and Guitar Summit in August 2018! Thanks to Sam for growing his knowledge and expertise as well as promoting West Music across the United States.

As told to Robin Walenta,
President & CEO
