"I first learned to strum through this program. Within a year, and with no previous musical training, I was invited to play in a performing group, and now perform with a second group as well. I go busking by myself, with confidence. This program is, quite simply, excellent in all aspects."

"Since age 6, I've tried to learn to play a musical instrument without success (first the piano, at age 16 the guitar, at age 30 the keyboard, at age 55 the banjo uke). At age 62, I bought a uke and began Brett's course. 1 1/2 years later, I've fulfilled my lifelong dream - I can play hundreds of songs!"
