WHAT STUDENTS HAVE SAID
Studying ukulele with Anne Ku becomes a full lifestyle experience. She encourages her students to expand our repertoires and musical styles. During 15 months of Covid lockdown, I wrote parodies for Anne’s Songs in the Time of Corona meetups, which led to my joining her Boot Camp, followed by classes for better strumming, fingerpicking, music theory, as well as Riffs & Licks. I now have an ukulele practice routine, an international practice group, and even a personal trainer who leads workouts for ukulele players.
Anne’s classes combine skill development with interesting musical selections. Over the past year taking her classes, both my enjoyment and abilities playing my ukulele have grown enormously. In addition I have made many new friends as part of- the community Anne has created through her diverse class offerings and jam opportunities. Whatever level you are at, there is a course available that will make you a better ukulele player or performer.
