9. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
I feel he is a great teacher and I have no complains in his teaching
To continue his teaching sytle
Get song suggestions from students
I think that he can try and limit how much he talks. Sometimes he talks for a long time about other stories and I get bored and distracted.
No improvement really needed more videos maybe helpful.
All good!
keep doing what doing
I feel he is doing a great job, for a beginner like myself he has alot of patience
10. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
learning all these diffrent types of songs.
ʻAll aspects
We would play a new song every class
I like that he doesn't spend to much time teaching us songs.
All of it.
The music and strumming technigues and the finger picking. And playing songs in a different key.
actually playing ukulele
When he is teaching us about the cords, and the beats, and for what keys go the right place, I'm still learning it's fun!
11. My overall evaluation of this course is...
I love it!! It has taught me more on my ukelele chords, and how to read his charts.
Fun experience and learned a few things
I like this class. It's the perfect speed and I think that Mr. Katz is an awesome teacher.
Great suggest to anyone.
Hope to see this class around always! Joel is a wonderful teacher and I want to take other classes with him.
one of best teachers
I'll tell others about getting into his class
12. Other comments:
I loved his class and I love what he has taught me alot, I hope there was another course of Ukelele 2
nope
As a class, we have expressed that their should be an Ukulele 2, because their is so much more you can learn to broaden our ukulele abilities.
Mr. Katz Has alot of patience, helpful, and a fun and loving personality

9. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
Hard to say considering our particular class was a little different than traditional guitar II. I really enjoyed the emphasis on recording and group work, and feel it should be part of the regular curriculum
I would like to see it develop into even more of a Song Creating Class along with the Advanced Guitar Techniques that he already teaches. :)
10. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
The recording and the group work!
We got to Create some of our own Original Music, Which Was My Favorite Part Of The Course, we participated in each other songs, Advancing Our Creative Abilities and showing us how to bring it from a thought to an actual recorded piece of art! Yay Joel! :) MAHALO!
11. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Fantastic!
I believe we were headed in the Right Direction in this class. We learned New Advanced Guitar Methods & Techniques, we went back over some basics which was Very Helpful, and Joel Katz Encouraged us in our Creative Expressions in Music. We learned some well known songs and we also got to Create some of our own Original Music. Joel was Very Respectfull & Pleasant. What a Great Heart in a Person. :)
