I really like that Taimane is able to play at a very fast tempo. 🙂November 17, 2017 at 11:55 am #14591brownizsParticipant
Thank you, Andrew and a big THANK YOU to Taimane.
As a classically trained dancer originally from NYC, I am so pleased to currently find myself living in Upstate New York and learning the Ukulele. I have thoroughly enjoyed hearing AND watching you play with all the passion and emotion that you do.
Thank you for showing me that performance can include both the Ukulele and Dance.

I’m so impressed by you as as a real person and as a performer. You’re responses the questions are clearly meaningful and from the heart, and your stage performances are stunning and confident. Starting gentle and precise then building intensity with a strong flamenco influence. You’re a positive influence on the whole ukulele genre.
(Please don’t count this as a contest entry; I already have a uke that I a really like.)

I love how Taimane expresses herself through dancing and playing the ukulele at the same time. I also love how she sometimes focuses too much on her dance and make mistake on her ukulele playing which was mostly unnoticed.November 17, 2017 at 12:03 pm #14594zo2580baParticipant
In the world of ukulele Taimane has carved out a unique place. Love to watch her performNovember 17, 2017 at 12:09 pm #14595kate_lunaParticipant
Taimane, what I admire about you most is how unapologetic you are about being yourself. This is in my opinion, what makes your music so powerful because you cannot compare it to anything else. Thank you for being a strong female musician for my sister and I to look up to! 💙

I love taimane just because she is my greatest inspiration. When i’m frustrated by some hard song i’m learning, i just watch her videos and immediately fell that big energy of inspiration to keep working my craft. Thank you taimane!November 17, 2017 at 1:34 pm #14598leahwoosleyMember
Your energy is radiant. 🙂November 17, 2017 at 2:19 pm #14602ukuleleyallParticipant
I only learned about Taimane a couple months ago. But since then I have listened to the her music everyday. I can hear the passion and the energy from every song. Very few artist have the power and presence to give people goosebumps or a frisson feeling, and you have that power. Keep up the good work and I will stay tuned.

Thank you Rock Class 101 and Taimane for a second opportunity! Congratulations to dgchristian for being selected and personally chosen by Taimane to win; however, my heart sunk when I saw that my question was not randomly selected and I did not win! I am very envious that Taimane picked up the ukulele at the early age of five and has made a career out of a talent she is so passionate about–her music and performance style is infectious! I, on the other hand, have just recently started taking classes at my local library where I am able to check-out a ukulele when it is available (there is a LONG waitlist)! I would love to win one of my very own, especially one that has the mana of Taimane! Here’s to second chances!!!! Aloha!
