What People Are Saying

What people are saying…


Your lessons are fantastic!!!!  I am 70 and began teaching myself how to play the uke several years ago. I discovered your web site when you were around Lesson 12 and have copied and saved all of them in a Microsoft folder.  You have answered questions that I have had about music theory for all this time.  Your lessons unlock the door to understanding so many concepts.  I become so excited when I read along and I think -“Oh my God, he’s going to tell how to name the moveable chords, or I’m going to finally learn how to determine the chords in a Key!  You explain everything so well!!!  You also lend confidence.  I didn’t think that I could distinguish by hearing the chords in any song.  But when you listed what they would be, and I listened to you play them, I could figure it out!

 I did buy your Hear the Strum DVD several months ago from the Magic Fluke Company. I read the description on their web page and that may have led me to your great instructions.  I do think your theory eliminates so much frustration but I need to practice it more while listening to the DVD.  You certainly have a magnetizing personality, and I so enjoy your playing. 

 I have wanted to write to you to thank you for all the help I have gained from your lessons but couldn’t locate your e-mail address for awhile.

Sorry to be so late expressing my enormous appreciation for your Uke Lessons!  They are on the best on the internet!  And I would hope that you will at some point have them all published in a book.  Will write again.  Enjoy your summer!!”
