You are our Den Mother!

I’ve never met a teacher, coach, mentor or guide who took such pride in her charges, befriended all and supported all with that brilliant smile, sense of humor and empathy. Your spirit is the drive behind the success of CCS, Cali.

We play our hearts out for you.

Love, Toni 2/2017

This is the first time I’m actually learning how to play the ukulele properly!  It’s been quite challenging but fun!   You’ve already answered some of my questions that I had about fingering.   Your explanations about fingering are helpful and I like your flexibility about allowing us to find what works best for us and encouraging us to experiment!  …I do love your ways of teaching us and your sense of humor!

I’m loving the CC Strummers more and more every day. Thanks for allowing me to be an honorary member!!

Dear Cali.

I wonder if you have any idea what joy you bring to our lives. Although many of the Strummers are not able to keep up or play our ukuleles as we would like, your patience and encouragement keeps us all going. Even though I cannot function as I would like and find myself just strumming once instead of four times because of the pain, I still feel like I am able to contribute to the whole and can keep on singing and finding ways to add some percussion…!

Thank you for being the talented, delightful person that you are.

You make your students happy they’re in your classes. You are an inspirational teacher. I often describe you as challenging us and balancing the challenges with praise for strums well done. A good formula!

Your classes are so much fun and informative.  I so look forward to every class and really missed them when I didn’t have my iPad.

I had forgotten how much fun it is to turn people on to making music together. I am really excited by this and it was your YouTube video that gave me the courage to do this. In fact , one of your YouTube videos inspired me to start a ukulele group at my senior center.

Wonderful! This one makes me cry!

Thank you for your warmth and understanding. I appreciate you so much. It was a great class Saturday.  I love Summer Wind. You taught us so much and my aspirations are high.  It really is about coming together. I’m blessed to be part of this loving and fun ukulele community.  What a gem.
