We purchased a 12-lesson package for my daughter as a Christmas Gift. My daughter is 14 years old, and after completing these lessons her love for music has grown. She had only taken a beginner's level course in piano and guitar prior to working with Mauricio. My daughter looked forward to every lesson, and would come home to keep practicing and improving her skills. We plan to work with Mauricio again in the near future and would highly recommend him!

3rd lesson so far, and my daughter has learned so much!! She enjoys her classes with Mauricio and looks forward to each class. Mauricio has a small home studio with various musical instruments. His experience and skill in teaching music is quite apparent and much appreciated!

Private Ukulele Teacher

In teaching lessons, it is my great pleasure to share with students of all ages and skill levels the knowledge that I've gained over 27 years of playing. I firmly believe that anyone can learn anything at any time, given the proper tools!

In our first lesson, we will determine your musical goals and create a realistic path to achieving them. It's my job to help you along this path while keeping things fun.

To maintain focus and week-to-week continuity, I always provide lesson notes to take home. I can also provide recordings of lessons and transcriptions of pieces, if desired.

**Studio Equipment**
violins, viola, mandolin, guitar, bass, ukulele, piano, recording equipment

I’ve had my ukulele for over two years, and have done nothing with it. Decided the other day it was time, did a google search and found Alexandra on TakeLessons! I have zero music background but she’s made these lessons SOO simple and effective. I have a long ways to go, yet I leave each lesson with a feeling of accomplishment! Wasn’t expecting this to go so well, 110% satisfied. Thanks Alexander :)

"I purchased ukulele's for my kids on our last vacation to Hawaii. I figured the best way to make sure they played them was to sign them up for lessons. Alex allowed the kids to take their lessons together which was really nice for them. They thought Alex was an excellent teacher and they learned a lot from him. I was surprised at how fast they learned. He was very patient and open to helping them learn the things they wanted to know. They just want to play for personal enjoyment. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Alex for anyone, no matter what your skill level is."

Should I Use a Ukulele Pick? What You Do & Don't Need

To “Pick” or Not to “Pick”? Many students ask when first learning ukulele, “Should I use a ukulele pick?” I usually respond by asking questions about the particular styles they are interested in playing and try to get a better understanding of the sound they are trying to produce. Certain styles are more conducive to picking than others and other styles work better with just fingers and no pick. Whether or not you choose to use a pick is dependent on a few things: the style and …
