David is an excellent teacher! Have been taking my 8 year old to him and she has learned a lot in three 30 minute lessons. Looking forward to continuing with David.

David, Greg, and the female guitar teacher ( I have forgotten her name ) were all very welcoming and offered great insight into my son's advancement with his guitar and drum playing. He can't wait for his next lesson. Regards, Baron Baker

We signed up our 10-year-old son for online lessons with Daniel when in-person lessons became challenging during the pandemic. We were not sure how effective the lessons would be, but we were excited about finding a teacher with musical interests that aligned with our son's (rock and up-tempo bluegrass).

Five lessons in, we are thrilled about the choice we made. Daniel has a great rapport with our son and has worked to really "get" him. Daniel has the kind of focus on bowing techniques that we were never able to get from a local violin teacher. He is also in touch between lessons, sending materials to help our fiddler develop specific skills. And he models the kind of enthusiasm for music that we want for our son.

We'll know more at the one-year mark than at the five-lesson mark, but right now we are really pleased with Daniel and recommend him very highly.
Holly
Our first lesson together was so much fun! Daniel is easy to talk to, very knowledgeable, and seems ready to challenge me to grow musically. I’m looking forward to the lessons ahead!

The Ukulele is such a fun instrument to play. It's a small instrument with a big sound. There is actually 4 different sizes you can choose from: Soprano, Concert, Tenor, and Baritone. The first 3 have the same string arrangement which is
G, C, E, A, and the Baritone is D, G, B, E, which is the same tuning as the first 4 strings on a guitar. Soprano is the smallest and the Baritone is the largest. If you want the true Hawaiian sound you need the Soprano. If you have really big hands or thick fingers you might want to go with the Concert or Tenor size so it will be easier to play.

They are very affordable instruments. The one I have is a Fender U Uke it was around 109.00. It's easier then guitar because you don't have to press down as hard on the strings.

Some of my favorite Ukulele players and bands that incorporate it are Jack Johnson, Brian May from Queen, Beach Boys, Elvis, Israel Iz, and many more.

I teach beginner to intermediate level for single and group lessons.

Music is an exploration. Human beings are musical by nature. We walk to a beat, we dance to a beat, we communicate to a beat, and our hearts beat to a beat. My goal as a music teacher is provide knowledge in how we can use music to express ourselves. Through our musical exploration it is important to learn from everyone, follow no one, watch for patterns and most importantly to work every hard!

Through my studies as a music therapist, I have learned and practiced various way to provide the best instruction and musical experience to students of all ages and learning styles.

Due to covid-19 it is important to continue to grow and learn new skills. I have invested in high quality video cameras and audio equipment to provide the best quality lessons.

The warm and bright tone of the ukulele instantly transports you to a tropical island. The instrument had its beginnings on the island of Madeira off the coast of Portugal. In the 1800s, the ukulele made its way to Hawaii by way of immigrants. The word “ukulele” literally means “jumping flea,” due to the fact that the Hawaiians played all over the strings, jumping around as it were. Today, dozens of YouTube vloggers transpose popular songs for the ukulele, giving classic tune …
