Check out these student reviews from Holly’s recent Zoom Ukulele Workshops:
This is the second time enrolling in Holly’s ukulele workshop. I love learning, and it’s great to pick up new information. A big thank you to Holly for giving us the capability to learn the ukulele!

When I signed up for Holly’s online ukulele class, I had a rudimentary understanding of chords and strumming but no formal background in music. My goal for the six-week class was to learn to read music so I could play notes, and learn playing technique. Thanks to Holly’s unique Ukulele Method, I was able to do just that. I also learned advanced fingerpicking and brush patterns as well as how to play “legato”, all while having a lot of fun! Holly is an enthusiastic and engaging teacher well able to relate to her students no matter their age or learning style. The book Holly wrote for this class, Holly’s Ukulele Method™, is comprehensive – easy for beginners to follow and understand with enough content and music to keep the intermediate player equally interested and challenged.

Overall, I was very pleased with the course. I learned a lot and I feel that I can progress on my own. Thanks Holly, it was a blast!

Holly is a lively, fun, passionate and very loving ukulele teacher. She is an accomplished musician who provides a new approach for reading music with colorful visuals and more advanced finger picking vs. only strumming. She allows time for beginners to take it slow. She listens and addresses student needs and challenges with total attention and gives students her all. Holly’s method creates a path for beautiful music making and if you take the time to practice you will reap the rewards. I highly recommend her class!

Excellent course! I highly recommend it. Not only did the instructor teach chords and notes on the instrument but also taught how to read music. Instructor handled the on line sessions well.

Holly is a superior instructor, positive, supportive and full of joy. Her multi-model approach provides the appropriate instruction for all types of learning styles. I highly recommend this course.

Holly’s Ukulele’s class was informative, helpful and rewarding. Although distance zoom or virtual learning is a challenge, Holly mastered the technology quite well. We were able to see her play and she was able to see the students and help them with their technique. I am looking forward to her class in January 2021.

Holly is a wonderful ukulele instructor, and her joie de vivre, professionalism and excellent teaching techniques are extremely effective. Holly has mastered the ability to teach through Zoom, by showing us techniques and then conscientiously checking each of us as we played along. I learned notes, chords, how to read music and how to finger pluck correctly. I am still having fun playing the ukulele every day, working from the wealth of material Holly included. This class has provided me with musical joy in my days, which is greatly appreciated in this time of Covid!
