Course testimonials:

  • Student gave this course 4 stars

  • A good teacher who demonstrated the method and also showed examples in videos; patient and friendly, helpful - and had a good range of ukuleles and other accessories for sale. Loved his Hawaiian Shirts - it made everyone relax even before the lesson began, to see him standing there wearing one , holding the uke, ready to go!
