I really enjoy trying to play and sing along with your class and totally love being a part of it, even if it’s from across the ocean.  I love the embellishments you show us as well as tips on how to change chords more easily.  Thank you so much.

THANK YOU!! for having us “in class” and I am truly enjoying it.  You give me joy, motivation, inspiration, and you make us laugh!  And I’m sure most of us feel the same!  Keep up the great work that you are doing, especially during this covid-19 crisis.  Thanks, again!

Thanks Cali!! I’m really grateful for access to your music arrangements and for learning with the CC Strummers!! Be well!


Thank you so much Cali for bringing the uke into my life – much better than Prozac. I wanted you to know I bought a Toys R Us uke for my 3 year old granddaughter. I’m hooked and practice every day. If Congress could take ukulele lessons from you, we could all get along! Thanks Cali, for your music and sharing the uke with us.

“When describing Cali Rose, the words “wacky” and “zany” come to mind…unexpectedly good music backing up the jokes…”

“I listened to your CD on the way to work this morning and also as I was out doing errands at lunch.  It’s great – I was smiling the whole time I was listening.  It’s got great compositions, great singing, great musicianship and it’s very well produced.  Unfortunately, it’s had a huge psychological impact on me.  My letter of resignation has been submitted and I will be in Maui until further notice.”
