The Online Pluck class via Zoom was great! We had the opportunity to learn many things relating to Fingerstyle Ukulele; exercises, techniques, and songs! Anne works very hard to enrich her classes to reach a lot of different folks across the world! The recordings have been very helpful as well!!! I never came away without having new tidbits to work on for the next week’s class!
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.
