This has been a truly enjoyable experience.

Don was teaching several of my charter high school students in guitar/vocal and music production. After a quick observation of his classes, I signed up for lessons as well. I am an adult student and have been taking guitar/vocal performance lessons with Don for three years. This has been a truly enjoyable experience. Don combines proper technique with enough creativity to make our lessons fun. Don is an inspirational teacher. He tuned into my musical tastes and tailored his lessons to my desires. I highly recommend Don to any adult or youth students interested in furthering their skills and enjoyment of music performance.

Family Fun on Ukelele and Strumstick

Don has been wonderful to work with as a Ukelele and Strumstick instructor. I had an idea to get music lessons for my husband and 5 year old daughter as a Christmas gift. The thought was to have special Daddy and daughter time; sharing something that my husband loves to do. Don has worked with us to create a whole experience for them around music lessons. Don has succeeded in building an environment for our daughter to enjoy the music lesson experience. The first time she played 'hot crossed buns' brought a tear of joy to my eyes. He has even included me in the group lessons on Strumstick. My husband has expanded his knowledge of musical instruments and enhanced his playing skills with Don's skillful instruction. Don has made the whole experience delightful for our family.

The Ukulele is tuned exactly like the top 4 strings of a guitar capoed up 5 frets, and the 4th string is tuned an octave higher. All the shapes one learns on one or the other are transferable, though the chord and note names change (up/down 5 semitones/frets).

About Rick

Rick taught our 7-year old son for quite a few months, and did a fantastic job. We were pleased with his energy, enthusiasm, and ability to connect with young people.

We were sad when our son decided that he'd like to take a break from music and play more tennis, but hope that this, his first musical experience, will inspire him to return to it at some later point.

I highly recommend Rick.

About Paul

Guitar teacher, Musicologist, performer and over-all happy guy, I simply love living a musical life! It's wonderful being a positive force in my students exploration of music, and I feel like I learn just as much from them, as they do from me . I studied musicology all over the world, completing my education in Amsterdam with a focus on world music and composition. My most loved music genres are the same ones that happen to be my specialties: Blues, Rock, Classical, Metal, and Flamenco. Yes, Metal AND Flamenco!!!

Besides teaching, I am a Blakhart-guitars endorsed artist with the heavy-metal band "We are Legion". We are currently finishing a new album to be released spring 2013, while I work to finish my third solo album, which will be a collection of Flamenco pieces I ...

I have three years of experience with the ukulele, but many more when you consider its similarities to the guitar. The ukulele is as simple or complicated as you make it, and I am dedicated to helping you achieve the goals and level of skill you are looking for with this instrument.

About David

Howdy! My name is David, and I am an experienced musician and english educator.
On the music side, I've been making some kind of noise ever since I got my first guitar at the age of 6. I am well-educated in theory, technique, and applications for all things musical, but my focus is and always has been guitar. I have a lot of live and studio playing experience, and have excellent knowledge of the technical aspects of the instrument, such as amps, pedals, wiring, and more. I love everything about the instrument, and my goal is to help you learn to love it too!
The English language has always been my strong suit when it comes to schooling. I've participated in various creative writing contests, tutored peers at the high school and college level, and have been enrolled in ...
