Private Ukulele Teacher

Ukulele students start with five subjects.

1) Technique is concerned with the development of the physical mechanics involved in playing the instrument.

2) Scales are a part of basic music vocabulary and building blocks of the musical language.

3) Chords are also basic vocabulary of the musical language.

4) Note reading is not required for every student. It really depends on the students' goals. However, I strongly encourage everyone learn to read musical notation, (more than tablature). Literacy in reading music is analogous to literacy in reading in our English language. Can you imagine how much smaller our world would be if we couldn't read?

5) Songs utilize the skills and concepts of all the previously mentioned subjects and are the goal of studying music. The student chooses what songs they want to play, guided by my suggestions; Jazz, rock, blues, country, bluegrass, R &B - "How deep is the ocean, how high is the sky?"

A beginning student will practice ...

Online Ukulele Teacher

My name is Alice Limoges and I am a working singer-songwriter. I've been playing guitar and singing since I was a kid and since then I went on to graduate Magna Cum Laude from SUNY Purchase with a degree in Studio Composition (songwriting and production). While living in New York, I studied with some of the best teachers such as Amy Goldstein (voice), Charles Blenzig (piano), and Bob Thompson (guitar). I also went on to become a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition and played on Jon Samson's Grammy Award Winning album "Ageless: Songs For The Child Archetype". At the same time, I grew a teaching studio and have taught over 70 families since 2015. I have a passion for sharing a holistic approach to music, incorporating theory, technique, compostion/songwriting, improvisation, and note reading. I like to start by figuring out the songs they love and from there we figure out the skills needed. In March, I moved my studio online due to the coronavirus and have been ...
