“I will definitely incorporate more ukulele and improvisation as I play new songs and accompany my clients.
The online format allowed me to stop and start the video whenever I needed to practice and get something right before moving on.
It was a nice easy pace and provided me with materials and skills for me to better play my ukulele.”
“I will be utilizing improvisation more with the ukulele, as well as using in place of my guitar. I think it will also be encouraging for my clients to find success through the ukulele as well. I also anticipate more songwriting tailored to the ukulele. The material was presented very well! Thank you for offering this course!”
“I’ll definitely use ukulele more than I used to do in my classes, not only for the hello and goodbye song, but also to try, as much as possible, to generate improvised dialogue with the patients /clients. The variety of songs and the clarity with which Mimi Sinclair teaches thing is perfect for beginning ukulele.Thanks a lot to Mimi for her useful teaching!”
