About Rhonda

I have always had a love for music. From all the music trivia games my family won't play with me, to my large collection of records, cassettes, and CDs - I am hooked! I made my solo performance debut at age 7 by singing "It's A Small World" acapella in a school talent show. At age 9 I started

Online Ukulele Teacher

Ukulele is an interesting instrument with a lot of similar characteristics to guitar. I have been playing ukulele for the past year now and it's substantially easier to play and faster to learn then guitar, but you can develop skills that will transfer over to the guitar.

About Jeremie

I'm a self taught guitarist who has been playing for 20 years. I have played professionally in numerous bands and ensembles ranging from jazz to folk to rock, and I've been writing music for the same length of time. I currently perform with one of my students from TakeLessons named Mackenzie O'Brie

Online Ukulele Teacher

My ukulele students not only learn to play chords, they also learn to read music and tabs. They learn music theory as it applies to their playing so that they know why they are doing a certain thing not just how to do it. They will have hours of enjoyment playing songs within their skill level so that they can advance quickly.

About Suzann

My educational background consists of both university and music conservatory. As a musician, I have sung and played my various instruments since a very young child. Music is meant to be shared and I have over 30 years of teaching and performance experience. As a writer, I have been a published

Online Ukulele Teacher

I believe that learning music should be as fun and inspiring as it can be to play, and the Ukulele is a great first instrument for people interested in learning to play any stringed instrument.
Its small size makes it easier for little fingers to handle, and the low-tension nylon strings are more comfortable for beginners to press against the fretboard. Plus, it's portable, so you can take it just about anywhere!

We all have a vast wellspring of creative energy within us, and the goal of the relationship between the student and the teacher is to help nurture and develop that latent talent. For this reason, my approach to teaching music is highly individualized. I start out with the premise that the student has unique gifts and my job is to help them discover what those are, and develop and refine them in order to make beautiful and deeply satisfying music, through whatever instrument and in whatever style they are drawn towards.

Depending on one's starting level of ...

I've been getting guitar lessons with Sean for sometime after some singing lessons with him. He's a great teacher, very patient, flexible, always pushing me to experiment more and adapting to my needs as a student. I've also learned so much about music theory and different approaches to song writing thanks to his input.
Cole
I Googled "guitar teacher, Roseburg, OR" and low and behold, Sean showed up and boy I'm glad he did!!! Sean and I hit it off instantly and the things I wanted to get better at (finger picking, hammer(s) on and off, picking the notes within chords, etc.) Sean was completely versed in! Long story short... I couldn't be happier with Sean as a teacher and as a person he's totally cool as well! I recommend Sean unequivocally and if you want to start to play guitar or even get better as I do, Sean is your guy, no doubt about it!!!

"Rodrigo is a great instructor, super knowledgeable and an expert musician. Although he is well versed in may styles, we focus on the theory, technique and culture of the Latin forms. Rodrigo is passionate about his craft but easy going and patient. I always look forward to our sessions and highly recommend him as an instructor."

"Jason is so patient and helpful

I started taking ukulele lessons on a whim to be able play songs for my son who is 13 months old. I have never had much success with music. Sometimes my son is napping while I have my lesson, and sometimes he wakes up and I wear him in a carrier. This doesn't frazzle Jason at all who always prepares great lessons for me and quickly simplifies things when he sees me struggling. Even when I feel stressed because my son starts fussing, Jason is cool, kind, and calm. I love my new skill of playing ukulele and am so grateful to Jason for making it possible. He is really good at providing kind support and the right amount of challenge in a lesson. He's also punctual and accommodating with schedule changes. Overall I give Jason an A+."

"Jesse is an amazing teacher with my 12 y/o daughter. He's kind, patient and is in tune to what she likes. He communicates well with her and she very much looks forward to her lessons with him. In just a short time (maybe 6 lessons), she's learned so much and plays many songs already and has had almost no exposure to any instrument to this point. Plus, you can't help but smile when there's a Ukulele being played in the house! Thank you Jesse for sharing your gift and passion of music to others."

"Brandi was very patient with my very distracted, impatient 6 year old. My daughter wanted to play the ukulele, but didn't really want to sit through the lesson. We only tried 5 session and then quit, but Brandi was great throughout with suggestions for how to keep her interested and working with her. We will definitely come back to lessons with Brandi when my daughter is more ready."
