Beginning ukulele students will be taught the basics in a fun but productive way. I will teach a strong foundation so a student can move forward with confidence. Lessons would be individualized to focus on areas that need the most guidance.

You will learn the basics about rhythm, harmony, and melody and how they apply to ukulele. You will become fluent in the 12 basic keys to a degree where you can play simple songs in any of them.

Thanks for the class Trevor! I just got my ukulele today, signed up for a free trial and came across your class! Chat or voice options weren't working for me so I couldn't respond during the class but just want to let you know it was great:)

Brian is an excellent teacher. We were able to dive right into the lesson and go through some techniques for me to practice on my own. It was obvious he knew what he was talking about ranging from music theory to instrument care. Highly recommend working with him if you want to learn the banjo.

I've been teaching ukulele for 15 years. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to strum accompaniments to simple songs. As time goes on you'll be able to play more advanced chords and combine melody with the chords to do solo arrangments. For Children, I typically use The Hal Leonard book "Ukulele for Kids". It's a great book for getting the student up and running very quickly. For Adults the Hal Leonard Ukulele Method book 1 and 2. For someone who has played before The National Guitar Workshop has a uke book that works well for a little more advanced students. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I have been working with Eric for one year and he is an excellent instructor. He is quite knowledgeable, patient, and friendly. He is detailed oriented and provides lots of tips on improving my playing. He is also very flexible and allows me to select what I would like to work on whether it be new skills or selecting music I wish to learn. I would very highly recommend him as an instructor.
Lois
Eric has taught me a lot in 5 months! He is patient but also corrects my technique which I appreciate. He explains the various skills and techniques making sure that I understand them using efficient fingering. He is also left handed which helps me see the mirror image as I am right handed. Highly recommend him!

Ukulele is such a fun instrument to start on at anytime in life. Easy to press strings for the small child, easy to hold, easy to learn chords and songs. I will teach you to read music, tab and chord diagrams. Strumming is fun and can be done with the fingers or felt pick. I specialize in fingerstyle.

"Had my first lesson with Matthew last night. He was great - quickly figured out my skill level, and came up with some songs that fit me well. They were easy enough that I can learn them, but with some challenging parts to make it fun. The pace of the lesson was great; we mixed teaching with playing, and he even threw in some intro music theory tidbits to help me understand better what I was doing. I left motivated to practice, and I'm looking forward to my next lesson."
