FEEDBACK FROM PREVIOUS STUDENTS:
Anne Ku knows so much about music and teaching. It is clear that she loves playing songs with others.
Fun, friendly instructor, makes it easy to learn!
Anne's Beginning Ukulele class was so much fun! I was nervous as a beginner, but since taking the course I've found that I can improvise and play simple songs. Anne's teaching style is fun and engaging.
