My 10-year old daughter and 6-year old son took a few ukulele lessons with Nanette. Per my kids, they did not feel like she was engaging with them. They had hoped that she would make the lessons a fun experience and it was not for them. She would probably be a better fit with older kids and adults. We have decided to seek future ukulele lessons with a new teacher.+ Read More

After one 30 minute lesson, my 6 year old daughter came home and taught me all the names of the strings and about the names of the different parts of the guitar. She is excited and learned a lot. I couldn't be more happy for her. Great lesson and experience! !+ Read More

PPP - Professional, Patient, Precise (Exceptionally Outstanding)
For such a young person Nanette is at the very top of her game and she loves her profession. That love is felt and gives me much confidence in my ability to improve and one day perform a rock song.
She is very precise in explaining each note, how to arch your fingers and move between notes.
