Kate's wonderful talent for music is impressive and so is her teaching method.
I started off knowing basically nothing and had no sense of rhythm. Although I knew it was going to be challenging, I was determined to have fun while learning, no matter what - and picking Kate as my teacher was a very fortunate decision.
I am so glad that throughout the course of two months, I was able to learn how to play some of my favorite songs on the uke and also was gifted with precious tips and tricks to improve my practice in the long term!
Kate is patient, sweet and will amaze you with her skills - and you'll also be amazed by how much you can learn in one hour with her. I'd rate the classes with 10 stars if that was even possible :)

Thanks so much Kate!

Kate is fantastic!! She has such a warm, easygoing personality, and I was very comfortable having her in my home. She is extremely knowledgeable about the uke and was able to immediately recognize my strengths and weaknesses. I feel challenged, but not overwhelmed. I had so much fun and can't wait for next week's lesson!
