My daughters first online lessons and a wonderful experience! Ruben is very engaging, friendly and knowledgeable. He is easy to contact, accommodating and quick to respond to questions. Would highly recommend!
Kevin and Ella M.
My 9-year-old daughter and 11-year-old son have been taking uke lessons for 3 weeks now and they really enjoy Ruben's style of teaching; so do we. He provides a great combination of making it fun while also really teaching them the foundations of music. They are already reading and writing some music and they enjoy doing their music homework. Most important, they are having fun at the lessons and while practicing at home.

The ukulele is a creative adaptation and redesign of the machete de braga, a small stringed instrument that was introduced to Hawaii by Portuguese immigrants in August of 1879. The Hawaiian people fell in love with the sound of the instrument and named it “ukulele" because the fingers of the performer dancing around on the neck and strings as a song was played resembled jumping fleas. Ukulele means jumping fleas in the Hawaiian language.

Since the ukulele is related to a European instrument and the guitar from Spain, the relative tuning is the same. It should be tuned a perfect fourth up from a guitar, so the first string is tuned to an A, second string should be tuned to an E, third string will be a C, & the fourth string should be tuned to a G an octave up. Most ukuleles have a fourth string that is an octave above what the normal progression would be of most stringed instruments. If your G string is not tuned an octave up it’s a larger size than the average ukulele G string ...

"My sister bought 5 months of ukulele lessons for my 7-old-daughter as a gift and it has been a wonderful experience! At first, I was a little unsure of how online lessons would work out, especially for a 7-year-old, but Glenn kept my daughter engaged and fielded all technical challenges with grace and skill. He introduced things clearly and systematically, but I was most impressed with his sensitivity to appeal to my daughter's particular interests. Rather than giving her canned kiddy beginner pieces to start with (which certainly would have been easier for him), he asked what songs she liked and then transposed them himself to her level. That takes effort and dedication and really sets Glenn apart. Furthermore, Glenn met Jackie's brother one day and learned that he plays guitar and asked if they wanted something to play together. He evaluated my son's level and again, transposed a wonderful little arrangement for them to play together. It was wonderful that they had such an opportunity and everyone in the family loved getting to hear their duet. Glenn has truly succeeded in establishing a genuine interest in this instrument for my daughter, and I am grateful and touched by the way he tailored a program just for her. She has enjoyed the lessons very much and says she wants to go to California and meet Glenn face-to-face one day."
