“Well I said I L O V E your website and I do and I also applaud your one-woman-do-it-all approach, going to the care homes and connecting with your CDs and upbeat attitude, so very important, as you said, in these challenging of all times. Looking forward to your CD receipt and connecting more as I’m always drawn to the under-dogs of this world, those who exhibit grit.”
Wow, what a show last night! Yours is the best ukulele performance I’ve ever experienced!
Thanks for keeping up the spirits of so many people!!
Your song “Something Wonderful Happened Today” was SO GOOD. Seriously, I was stunned at how terrific you are on ukulele. After I watched and listened to you, I told my wife that you’re an amazing ukulele musician. Thank you so much for sharing that with us. Cheers.
Thank you Cali, for keeping us going with your wonderful teaching and positive energy. Keep smiling!
Thanks, Cali, for your expertise and humor.
THANK YOU Cali! For your irresistible enthusiasm, skills, caring and sharing the music with us. You mix things up and make us laugh and really listen to people, Cali, all of which makes you a very rare, special, wonderous teacher students love to follow. Thanks for all you do.
You have opened up a wonderful new world to me. I enjoy every minute I spend in class and with you.
You are a treasure and have motivated me to actually practice between sessions. I love the way your song sheets are annotated. So much information all on one page. I love it.
Thank you once again, Cali, for sharing your special magic and the magic of the ukulele!
Well we all “Woke up” happier this morning after seeing your wonderful performance. It was so great because we had never seen you actually perform without bringing it down to work for the Strummers. Thank you for giving your time to do that.
Delightful wonderful lively precious exciting and all other loving words that I can think of regarding your beautiful and sweet performance last evening. Thank you for sharing your head to toe talent with us here at Raintree.
Thank you for all you are and all you do to bring us joy period-—and joy through music!
Just wanted to tell you that you do really great work! With respect and admiration…
I moved to LA about 5 years ago and have been ‘uking’ ever since. It has been an enormous gift for me. I found good friends, a welcoming community (which you have built) and a greater love of music. Thank you so much.
You are such an inspiration to us. …we are growing and we couldn’t do it without your help.
Thank you, Cali. I want to say again how much your encouragement has meant< to me, particularly your comment that a recording is a snapshot of one point in a long journey. Yes! We're allowed to be miles less than perfect as we build skills and have a whale of good time. You continue to inspire and support all of us in so many ways.
How wonderful it is to celebrate you and all the pleasure you bring to us with your voice, our music, your smile and your great big heart.
During this terrible year you and the ukulele have been my sunshine! Keep shining spreading joy and laughter.
“Singing is like taking your voice on a joy ride to lift the blood and tears of life. Without music, I couldn’t bear the stress.” —Winston Churchill. Cali, thanks for bringing music to our lives. (more…)
Can I mention that we all play in a group led by Cali Rose in Culver City and she is just amazing! She writes great ukulele charts and we adore her! Thanks Cali.
“You are an inspiration to all of us–you are a “bringer of joy. Thank you.”
Thanks Cali for the joy you put in the universe.
Cali, you are the best!! A woman after my own heart! Responsible, kind, patient, and conscientious! You are the reason I am able to stick to this challenge! Update: I have been tuning up everyday and now it’s a cinch to get to the green…
I owe my music to you, your charm, loan of a uke and endless enthusiasm gave me a new lease on life. Thank you thank you thank you!
