My ukulele mentor was extremely knowledgeable regarding the intricacies of various music formats. She broke down complex details into language that I could understand. She challenged me with next steps and was kind to make me feel accomplished.

Ukulele lessons are incorporated into my instruction practice as ukulele is traditionally easier than guitar for inexperienced players. It’s a smaller body, neck, and fretboard, and has nylon strings instead of steel strings. It will help the student develop confidence in their playing to songs that inspire them.

My son has a great student–teacher relationship. It takes the right teacher to help enjoy learning while challenging him to improve with each lesson and not to short any song. Steve's online sound experience has really impressed us.
Dale Smith
I played an organ years ago ( I am 70 years old) and lost a lot of skills. I now have a digital piano, but I was not satisfied with my progress.

So I signed up for lessons with Steve. I took piano lessons from Steve for about 18 months. I moved about an hour away, so it was not practical to continue with him.

The lessons from Steve were exactly what I was looking for. He figured out my skill level and set up a plan for me. He stressed the fundamentals while teaching a song at the same time. Being able to play a song, even a simple one, was a great reward. Then we progressed to develop more skills and more interesting songs.

Steve is patient, attentive and a good coach. He genuinely loves teaching and finds that “spark” in to build on. I saw this many times as I would listen to him teaching the student before me.

Steve is a great teacher and I strongly recommend him.
Nicole
Steve is a great instructor and took the time to work through any challenges and helped our son grow as a drummer. He has a great virtual setup that makes it sound you are in the studio with him.

Undisputed fact: playing ukulele is lots of FUN!

I love playing ukulele. It’s fun, it’s easy to learn, and people get a big kick out of it! Chords are easy to play and the technique is simple. Whether you are picking up an instrument for the first time or adding to your current repertoire, ukulele is always a great choice.

Every single lesson is designed just for you. We focus on your goals while having fun playing music together. We talk about good practice habits and how to achieve new heights with your abilities. You learn to play songs that you recognize as well as improvising your own.

Together we will discover the many roles that the ukulele can have including rhythms, melodies, fingerpicking, and solos. I will also help you understand the fundamental principles of music. This will take the guess work out of your playing, enabling you to make solid choices with consistent results.

Talk to you soon!

Great instructor ! He knows to shift focus towards what you need to work on. As soon as the instructions are given or the questions he asks you feel relief because the energy is going towards what you already feel you need to work on and not just moving on to the next lesson. The tailored lessons make for a low pressure learning environment to fit your needs. As long as your consistant with receiving his lessons you will get where you want to be with your talents and be jammin out soon.

My daughter knew nothing about playing the ukulele, and tried to learn it online youtube tutorials but still had trouble. Athena has been very patient and understanding with her and my daughter now knows many chords and has been improved. She is also very encouraging and inspiring.

Such an amazing teacher. I'm a beginner and she makes it very easy and fun.
Caroleigh
Jessica is an amazing teacher! A few months ago I was having trouble learning the ukulele and I decided to start lessons with her. It was a great decision because ever since then I have learned way more than I could on YouTube! She is everything you want in a teacher, so helpful, supportive, fun, easy going, and kind. She has brought me so much further as a player and now I can write songs, have learned 15 of my favorite songs, am learning how to combine my instrument with others on my computer, and understand music so much more than ever. Thank you Jessica:)

How to Improvise on a Fretted Instrument: a Step-by-Step Guide

Learning how to improvise is often seen as a more advanced skill attempted only after you have mastered the basics. It is often clouded in mystery and seems almost like magic when demonstrated through a great improviser. However, we can turn that idea on its head and use improvising as a path to learning how to play an instrument, even from the early stages. Humans are naturally improvisational (just think about how you like to move or even “drum” to songs you love), and we can use t …

Kamaka Vs. Martin Ukulele: Pros & Cons for Uke Students

When you enter the market to buy yourself a new (or used) ukulele there are many factors to take into account: size of the uke, the type of woods used, the level of craftsmanship, and most importantly the price you’ll pay to get your hands on it. In doing your research, the most important thing to start off with is your price cap. Are you looking for the cheapest uke you can find, which would be anywhere from $20-40? Is it the next level up, around $100-200? Or is it the tier where the inst …
