You have started something truly special, Cali, something that really matters to so many people. They reflect your kindness, compassion and love of music. I was privileged to be part of such love for as long as I could. Bless you.

“Congratulations to you on your joyous, funny, uplifting CD! I especially like ‘I woke up’ and Happy Birthday. And related so well to the saga of the VW (my ’67 red bug remains my favorite car of all
time, it ran like it thought it was a Porsche.) Great singing and playing and arrangements, what a wonderful gift you have bestowed on your fans. I wish you many sales, that the fun may spread to the furthest reaches of your mandala and beyond.”

…I really enjoyed the Beginning Ukulele class. You are such an amazing teacher! I so appreciated your talent, teaching style and patience. I also really liked the information filled notebooks and summary emails you sent after every class. You have inspired me to pick up my ukulele every day and play.

Thank you for all you do Cali. Your authenticity and ability to connect with so many is heartwarming and wonderful.

“‘It’s a P.M.S. Kind of Day,’ ‘The Doggie-Doo Blues,’ ‘Pooey, Pooey, Pooey, It’s Christmas,’ and other humorous songs about life in the 90’s fill this sparkling collection, entertaining written and sung and beautifully produced.”

Brava! The documentary really touched me, especially, since I and my “girlfriends” are at the end of our 7th decade and will be moving into our 8th next year. We aren’t able to get together as we once did because of transportation and physical issues. But I know we all can remember the music and songs of our youth and those memories bring forth a lot of good feelings. Bless you and your compadres for bringing joy to our generation‼️

“I listened to “Are You Having Any Fun?” and I truly had fun listening.  I laughed and nearly cried.  Your music Cali gives so much, a whole philosophy, your personality, as well as pleasure.  I so enjoyed.”

I know the CC Strummers are thrilled that we’re under your direction. You inspire us, complement us and teach us so many things, not only about the ukulele but about life. I like learning about embellishments, alternate fingering for chords, slides. It’s fun playing the songs you’ve written. You challenge us in a gentle way. I think you’re a great teacher and I’m so glad I discovered your classes.

Thanks, Cali, for your expertise and humor.

I am so enjoying your lessons and especially your SPARKLE! Thank you so much.

—D.N.

We just got finished with our lesson, and I must tell you that you have inspired a renewed vow to practice and break though to a new level on the uke! Thank you! Your explanations, your suggestions and recommendations, your ideas and your critical analysis of where and how I can improve are incredibly valuable to me. Thank you!! I hope to make you proud when we have our next lesson in two weeks.
