For kids and adults, any level welcome! I've noticed that especially for young children ukulele is a good transitional instrument in order to then start guitar. I use fun exercise and songs to teach technique and I welcome any style and any songs you may want to learn!

Private Ukulele Teacher

I especially enjoy introducing beginners of all ages to the ukulele, which was my first musical passion as a young child! These days, my passion is working with my students in ways that prepare them to pursue their musical interests armed with correct posture and hand position, foundational technique, music-reading capabilities, and what I call the "building blocks" of music: knowledge of functional music theory and how to use it.

"Functional music theory" can sound daunting, but in fact it is fascinating, at least the way I teach it, using analogies appropriate to the age of the student, from chords like different types of sandwiches (yum!) to chord progressions like the materials and equipment used to build a house.

I also encourage my students from the start to EXPRESS themselves musically, emotionally, playfully, in ways that keep their imaginations engaged in their musical studies, rather than private lessons becoming stressful or tedious.

Note that young beginners ...

Teresa is an amazing music teacher! This was my first time getting singing lessons, and I was really nervous going into it, but she did such a great job at helping me feel more comfortable in the beginning. She’s so kind and she’s a great teacher too. The techniques and skills that she taught me have been extremely helpful, and she teaches them in a really easy-to-understand way. I would definitely recommend her!

Nils is a capable teacher with clearly evident musical experience. I have been taking lessons from him for about 3 months now. He is particularly gifted at interpreting how a work should be played based on how it sounds or has been performed in the past, a skill he brings to bear for his students.
Richard H.
Awesome instructor! Patient, encouraging, very knowledgeable. Highly recommend!
John
Nils is an extremely knowledgeable and accomplished instructor. He has extraordinary patience and excellent teaching skills. Coming from an adult student with high expectations, Nils has constantly delivered instructional value far beyond beyond what my paid "app" lessons were able to teach me. I highly recommend you give Nils a shot if you want to take your guitar playing to the next level.

As an adult learner who has always been interested in the violin, I have really enjoyed my experience with Mary-Elizabeth. She is a positive, patient, and encouraging teacher. We have been doing virtual lessons together and I am very impressed with how well she is able to offer corrections to my sound, posture, bow placement, etc... through a computer screen. It just goes to show how knowledgeable she is at her craft. I highly recommend Mary-Elizabeth for violin lessons.

"I purchased ukulele's for my kids on our last vacation to Hawaii. I figured the best way to make sure they played them was to sign them up for lessons. Alex allowed the kids to take their lessons together which was really nice for them. They thought Alex was an excellent teacher and they learned a lot from him. I was surprised at how fast they learned. He was very patient and open to helping them learn the things they wanted to know. They just want to play for personal enjoyment. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Alex for anyone, no matter what your skill level is."
