Sophia Ripley - Student of The Week 7/03/17
"Sophia finished her second instructional book and has now progressed to Ukulele Aerobics. Her technique is getting stronger all the time, and she will be branching out with this book into finger picking, more advanced chords and progressions and building the kind of neck familiarity needed for improvising. Sophia runs and plays soccer, and can play ukulele behind her head."
Pete Rivard, Sophia's Ukulele Instructor
Macie Olan - Student of The Week 6/26/17

Suzy Pollack - Student of The Week 5/30/17
"Suzy is one of my long-term adult students that has practiced with consistency and focus on the skills and techniques learned in our lessons. This past week her playing displayed great improvement. It is a joy to see her progress! Suzy has dogs and she likes to work in the garden. She also has a great sense of humor. We laugh frequently!"
Walter Croll, Suzy's Guitar Instructor
Cass Rude - Student of The Week 5/15/17
"Cass started taking lessons approximately 6 months ago, and has been practicing extremely hard and advancing (her already good) skills immensely. She has moved from 5th chair to 1st chair in her high school band. Her hard work and dedication to becoming a musician is awesome and has paid off! Cass enjoys riding horses when she is not playing her flute!"
Jo Sander, Cass' Flute Instructor
Ben Bruce - Student of The Week 5/6/17
"Ben is so engaged in practicing regularly that I never feel the need to remind or push him. He has taken it upon himself to tackle very difficult pieces and works diligently to improve his knowledge of theory along with his technique. Ben has a highly analytical mind, and I greatly enjoy listening to him wax philosophical on just about anything when the opportunity presents itself."
Jason McLean, Ben's guitar instructor
