“…it’s the players like you and Craig that make the world of ukulele what it is.  Put a guitar in someone’s hands and they want to be a rock start.  Put a Hawaiian ukulele in someone’s hands and they just want to play music and smile.”

— Mickey Maguire of Uke Player Magazine

Thanks, Cali, for your expertise and humor.

My dearest Cali,

I cannot tell you how much I enjoy what you write in the hopes that we learn what you are trying to instill in us. Your dedication is amazing, and your love for your teaching, and for us is to be greatly admired. You will never know what it meant to us to have found you on our road of life, and how much you touched us, not just with your teaching, but how we drove home happy for having been with you.

Frankly, you are cheaper than a psychiatrist, and so much more fun. Thanks for the memories, and thank you for all that you are. When I get to heaven, and they try to give me a harp, I will ask if I could not have a ukulele instead, and are any of my ukulele friends there so we can form a group, and teach the harp players how to play the ukulele. We will then have to wait a long, long time, for you to show up.

A grateful student,

I really enjoy the Monday and Thursday classes.  Several of your arrangements have become my favorites, especially La Bamba, the first song I have memorized in years. Thank you for offering these wonderful classes.  They truly are a bright spot in this terrible time.

Thank you! Your extra advice during the class helps enormously, as does your encouragement.

“Your song ‘Happy Ever After, No Such Ting’ and ‘Home is Where I Sit My Tushie Down’ really made me smile and I loved the ‘Beautiful Beautiful Hanalei’ and ‘Maui Nights.’  You have a marvelous gift.”

— Carol F.

I joined your class shortly after my husband passed away suddenly. Taking your class alleviated my mourning process because I had something fun to do each week and was happy to be in your class. For that, I would like to express my sincere gratitude for teaching me how to play ukulele. It was a lot of fun when we sang and played ukulele together in the class. It was even more enjoyable because you held the class with so much enthusiasm and humor.

Thank you again and take good care of yourself.

— Y. C.
