Comments Regarding My Teaching and Workshops

In addition to my busy ukulele schedule I maintain a busy private teaching schedule averaging between 50 to 60+ students a week - over 2000 lessons a year.

(From a posting to the jazz guitar newsgroup) Rocco, I took a lesson from a guy named Curt Sheller, who lives in Pottstown, PA area. Depending on where you live in the Philly area, that might be a bit of a drive for you, but he is well worth it. He's an excellent teacher. I took a lesson from him a couple of months ago, and had planned on taking a one-hour lesson per month from him, but then my work required me to travel almost every week since then and so I haven't been able to master the assignments he gave me so far.

I have taken single lessons from a few teachers in the area, and he is by far the best I've seen.

He is the only guy that I could find that is truly flexible in terms of scheduling, and to top it off, he's the best teacher for the guitar I've ever found as well... - Bob

“Very nice. I like the format. It makes it easy to print up for study and practice. As always, great material. Keep up the great work. Your materials and sites are some of the best out there!” - - Ed - 4thPeg Uke Forum

Here is a comment on my UkuleleLessons format from the 4thPeg Uke Forum.

Your chord of the week lessons are great! Really opened my eyes as to what I was doing & has allowed me to figure out the best way to play the chords I need, depending on the arrangement. Ive actually only looked at the first 2 weeks so far, then worked out the 3rd week myself.

I especially like the way that each week builds on what was learned the previous, so you are incorporating all the forms into the exercises!

Thanks guys!

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books!Peter Rhee
