“I’m very grateful for what I have learned from Mele in the last 10 months! After receiving an Ukulele for Christmas last year I quickly signed up for private lessons with Mele. I really learned so much having this one on one time in my lessons. While taking lessons I was also able to attend her workshops at the Bailey House. Taking the next step and playing Ukulele with other people was really rewarding. Also while taking lessons I purchased a few of her songbooks that were another great learning tool. With the songbooks I practiced between lessons and continued to learn. Her lessons on the CD’s were easy to follow. I could then review my questions with her at my next lesson.
Finally I joined one of her group classes at Kaunoa! That’s when I knew all the lessons and tools offered by Mele really paid off. The students I joined at Kaunoa had been playing for 2 years and I had no problem keeping up with them, and again, playing with a group is so much fun! I love to sing and play along with the group! Thanks so much Mele!!!” — Susan Colletto, 19 October 2015.
