After the first lesson you will be making music, playing songs and be on your way to achieving your musical goals with the ukulele. Playing Ukulele requires a knowledge of chords, melody, strumming technique as well as knowing songs all of which we will begin to learn in your first lesson.

With 10+ years as a music teacher and professional musician I have picked up many approaches that will insure you are making the most progress and truly finding your musical voice.

I cannot recommend Lee enough! I'm a slow learner and she has made me feel like the complete opposite! She really knows her stuff and can break down every little part that you might not understand in the most patient of ways. And it's helpful that she's just lovely to be around! Really happy I found her!

Private Ukulele Teacher

Experienced teacher of 26 years available for eager beginner and intermediate students of all ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of rhythm, chords, knowledge of the instrument and proper hand skills. I specialize in pop and rock and typically use songs the students choose to help them develop their skills.

About Athena

About Me If you can recognize your favorite song when you hear it, you already have what it takes to be a great musician! MY PROMISE TO YOU: 1. Your lesson will always be geared toward what YOU want to learn, and if it seems like we are working on something that doesn't match that, I wi

My kids love Athena! She interacts with them at their level
Lisa
I've tried using on line videos and ukulele lesson books to learn to play the ukulele. But I couldn't seem to get past a certain level. I signed up for lessons with Athena and I understand a LOT more about the composition, and how to bring it all together in my playing. She's great at understanding my "why" questions, and is very patient as I learn each new thing. At the end of our lesson she gives me a practice plan so I know what to work on for the week to improve. It's made a big difference. I appreciate how quickly Athena understands what's confusing me about something new, and how quickly she explains it in a logical, clear way. I'm enjoying my lessons, and Athena has been encouraging at each step of the way. If you want to learn a new instrument, or improve your skill, Athena is a great instructor to work with!
Julie A.
My 12-year-old daughter has been taking lessons for the past year with Athena and loves it. Athena is knowledgeable and very importantly fun which is required to keep the attention of a 12 year old. Would highly recommend Athena.

Kyle
I had an amazing experience taking vocal lessons with Jo. I came in to our lessons having a lot of experience with playing the guitar, and I could tell right away that Jo had a knack for teaching based on the experience and abilities of her students. She taught me vocal warmups that I use regularly now, helped me work through some of my favorite songs from multiple genres, and helped give me confidence to pursue singing more. I can't wait to take lessons with her again in the future, and would highly recommend her as an instructor!
Annie
Joanna is a talented and highly knowledgeable instructor, who clearly has a wide range of musical training. You can expect a well rounded lesson addressing musicality, technique, and posture. Her demeanor is excellent for working with both children and adults.

Joanna is a wonderful teacher. Warm, patient, and detail-oriented. Incredibly talented musician to boot. I highly recommend!

Online Ukulele Teacher

Strum and sing your favorite songs! Rhythm, fingerpicking, singing and playing, soloing, chord melodies and more. The foundation of music lessons is developing good listening and good timing. These are skills that all the best musicians have. That, along with some study of ukulele basics will provide a foundation for us to approach the kind of music that inspired you to look up a uk teacher. My hope is that you will become a well rounded musician and uk player, and that we'll both discover new music :)

I also enjoy preparing for jam sessions, auditions, and competing for placement in school ensembles and for scholarships.
