We Vancouverites really enjoyed your class. We sent your info around to our uke friends. Normally, I would have been intimidated by F7 and Fdim7, but you made learning them feasible. I also appreciated your tips on Bb and strumming. You have a nice teaching style and great voice. Thanks for a great experience."
"Thank you for your wonderful lessons, they sure brighten my week during these days of Covid restrictions."
"Love your classes. I work in Education, have taught various things out of school, have studied many many many types of things too.
YOU are great--Patient, slow enough for us to grasp it yet there are ideas of how more advanced players can adapt it, great way of explaining thumb position, chords, finger position, etc, personable, warm, speak at a speed that is GREAT (some teachers speak so fast & constant that you are exhausted after the zoom). Thank You!"
