About the Luthier

I'm Cary Kelly, owner and luthier of Mya-Moe Ukuleles. Each ukulele from Mya-Moe is individually handcrafted with a focus on three key elements: tone, playability, and aesthtics. In other words, how the ukulele sounds, feels and looks. The result in a professional grade ukulele that you can feel confident playing on stage, in the studio, with friends, or solo.



While we typically have a few ukulele avaiable for immediate purchase, most of the ukulele built at Mya-Moe are custom orders. You can get started ordering your own custom buit ukulele by following this link to configure an instrument. 


On a personal note...I live in Wilmette, IL with my wife, Mary, and two children, Katie and Bret (each of whom have spent a summer interning at Mya-Moe). Mary enjoys hiking and bike riding and is an avid reader. Katie is a talented painter, dancer and choreographer and Bret excels at baseball and hockey.
