WHAT PREVIOUS PARTICIPANTS HAVE SAID ABOUT THIS COURSE:
“Anne Ku’s Beginner Workshop Course was fantastic. I did not have a musical background, nor had ever play the Uke. She has provided me a solid foundation from which to grow. The follow up videos and materials are very helpful for me to practice.”
“Anne’s ukulele class was terrific. As a retiree with no musical background Anne made each class easy to follow. Anne has such upbeat enthusiasm in class that you can’t help but be motivated and inspired. I’m so glad I signed up and plan on following her lessons and videos.”
“This is the class that you never knew you needed. But when you’ve done it, you’ll realize you should have done it years ago.”
“The handout is excellent, and the class was both informative and fun.”
