I have been playing the ukulele since 2012. I am now endorsed by Kala ukulele, and write and play the majority of my own songs on the instrument.
It is a fantastic way to get into music and songwriting. I would love to help you find your ukulele fingers!

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.

I've been teaching voice, piano and guitar lessons for fourteen years, and I love it! It's an enormous joy and privilege to be asked to help others in their musical journeys. I take my work seriously, but it's a pretty great job. I am easy going and friendly, and when people come to me I try to

Nick is awesome! He has been working with our two young sons, ages 9 & 7, for close to a year now and they have made tremendous progress. He is especially skilled in meeting them where they are at, whether they are tired or unfocused, or have too much energy, he is always willing to listen to them and find an access point into their world of child-like creativity. He also asks them what songs they are into and even has transcribed the songs for them so they can learn their favorites. A real good mix of formal training and teaching to the individual child. Nick is, above all, patient and kind. The two best qualities any teacher can possess. I can not recommend him enough to parents of children, or anyone for that matter. I might even sign myself up in the near future!
Eric
Very comfortable and nice. Will update after a few more classes!

My kids really look forward forward to Nick's class. Nick seems to be so at ease and natural at helping kids with music.

My main goal in teaching music is to help people create a space of their own, where they can be creative and free. I like to see students have something they show for in their learning process, so I'm very keen in students being able to perform, talk about theory, make a track, write a song. My onl

As a voice teacher, I specialize in classical style of singing, but I have also worked with more contemporary styles. As an avid dancer and actor, I also teach about portraying a message through performance and bonding with your audience. In my voice lessons, we will work some on technique and also on presentation and the performance aspect of music.
