Ukulele Instruction Reviews from


Kathy is very patient and kind. She relates to the student's difficulties learning a new instrument and is consistently supportive and encouraging. As an older adult learner, it was important to me to have an environment that was nonjudgemental yet have the material presented in a professional manner. Lessons with Kathy were extremely rewarding and I have the confidence to play for my own enjoyment.  Sue A.​


My 11 year old took ukulele lessons from Ms. Kathy as a beginner student.  It was a fantastic experience from the very first lesson as Ms. Kathy has a warm, welcoming personality and helped my son’s confidence soar. There was detailed, written instructions, easy communication and fantastic music.  Heather A.


I enrolled in a 10 week class for beginners under the teachings of Kathy Bellavia and thoroughly enjoyed the classes.  Kathy was well prepared for each lesson providing handouts of music that was worked on in class. I had been learning to play the uke prior to the class and finished the course as a more accomplished player, no longer afraid to join seasoned uke players in jam sessions. I highly recommend The Music Makers  and would not hesitate to take lessons again in the future.  Leah B.

Preschool Lesson Reviews from Facebook:


Kathy Bellavia's music program is exceptional! This is my 11th year teaching her child-themed music curriculum in a Matthews church preschool, and I have enjoyed and been blessed by every minute of it. All children, from infants to T-K's, become thoroughly engaged in the songs, instruments, and movement activities as the lesson plans build from week to week. Kathy's vast knowledge, creative genius, and steadfast expertise have combined to provide a musical program that is unmatched. Every parent will want their child to experience and be delighted by Kathy's heart-warming approach to age-appropriate musical education.  Jeana S.


Music for Little Ones is an incredible program for all ages! My toddler has been taking music class with Kathy for the last 6 months and it is the highlight of her week! She proudly beams as she shows me her music class stamp, and we practice the songs every night before bedtime. I highly recommend this program- it's never too early to get children interested in the arts, and Ms. Kathy is the best!   Laura B.


Music for Little Ones is an excellent program. My 3 years old girl really enjoys the class. We receive a CD with the music they practice every season and we listen and sing the songs during our ride back home. I also used the service where the teacher comes to the class during her birthday. The teacher made my daughter feel special and all the kids enjoyed it too!    Rosita P.
