      I have only a chromatic autoharp at this point so I can not put any of the chording into practice right now, but I still got some good performance tips (open mic VS using a pick-up, use of a direct box), some artists to check out on Youtube, and your reminder "listen to all kinds of cool music and cool musicians." Thanks cool lady!

      I learned a lot and really enjoyed listening to Cathy's music and stories. Made me rethink my playing. I appreciated hearing about her background and training and how it influences her playing. Looking forward to another workshop with her.

      The background about chord choices and positioning has really helped me to focus on which new chords to cut and where to put them. Now hankering after a single key diatonic! The tune choices were varied and illuminating. Thank you Cathy.

      Great presentation the sound and video were great. You could see and hear everything at all times. I'll be back in two weeks.

      thanks for the class!! This is the first time I have taken an autoharp lesson, much less a lesson on line so it was a learning experience for me but very successful. It felt good just to "interact" with others who know about and enjoy the 'harp and that genre of music. Interesting too to see the inside of Pete's shop..he refurbished my autoharp about a year ago. Thanks again! I will be staying in touch. Miriam

      Hi Cathy, There was some choppiness in the video feed especially in the beginning so I missed about half of your presentation. But that mostly cleared up after about 40 minutes or so and I did enjoy the rest of it. Rhythm strumming isn't my strong suit and this was helpful. You don't need to return any money, I think I got my money's worth. The handout alone is worth having. I'm hoping this problem doesn't come up in your next one. I'll be watching to find out.
