Mark is a great instructor. Chill dude and lots of fun to work with. Loads of musical knowledge, and a ton on handy tips. If you ask nicely, he'll even teach you to play the uke behind your back or with your teeth.

Mark is an awesome instructor who makes learning the ukulele fun. I feel like I've already learned so much in the 7 classes I've taken. He is patient, creative, and easy to learn from.

Peter is a great teacher. He finds what your level is and goes from there. Peter finds what kind of style of learning best fits you.
For me, when Peter is playing the drums or Piano after he has given me the structures/scales makes it very easy to learn. Very patient and encouraging. Ask yourself- Why aren’t YOU taking lessons with Peter?

"Fantastic Teacher!

Alex is an awesome teacher! His ability to communicate information in a way that is easily understood no matter the complexity is a rare thing. Alex is obviously extremely passionate about teaching and music. Alex goes above the expected level of effort from a teacher, making sure every lesson has new and interesting material to be covered, as well as staying in contact as needed outside of lessons to answer any questions that may arise while practicing. If you are looking for someone who is dedicated to your learning process, as well as doing everything they can to keep material interesting and fun, I would suggest Alex."
