I cater my lessons to the wants and needs of the individual student. Whether it be to be able to play singalongs or do more advanced material, we'll find out what your goals are and then work to achieve those goals and if you want to, we can continue to work and exceed your original goals. I'm well versed in teaching almost every musical genre there is. So let's work together in whatever style you would like to play and set upon achieving those goals.

I have been seeing Jeff for about 3 years. I was an old folkie - with no time to practice - for about 50 years, but finally my wife bought me some lessons when I retired. Hit it off with Jeff immediately. He really knows the music I want - which in my case is classic rock - but he can do pretty much anything you need. Still give him 5 stars!
Richard R.
I immediately felt at ease with Jeff and it did not take him long to figure me out and point me in the right direction. Looking forward to many more lessons with him. I wish I lived here so it could be on a more regular basis. But happy with what I CAN get. Thanks Jeff!

My Aunty is turning 80 this weekend and I decided to learn how to play Happy Birthday on the ukulele as a surprise for her. Jeff not only helped me accomplish my goal but also got me started on other songs as well. His patience and enthusiastic personality made the lessons not ony productive but personable as well!!! 2 thumbs up to an awesome instructor!!!!!

The ukulele is one of the happiest sounding instruments I know. It's small, easy and fun. But don't be fooled, the ukulele is also capable of deep emotion when played well. Together we'll learn how to get the most out of this awesome little instrument.

Excellant Teacher

Evan is patient, understanding and most of all an excellent teacher. He rolls with you at your pace. I feel I have learned more from him with my banjo in a very short period of time than I have learned in a couple of years of guitar. He is fantastic!!
Kabin S.
Evan is great

He is very good teacher. I would recommended him to anyone.
Lane B.
Very impressed

I have had two lessons with Evan so far, and I always schedule my next lesson at the end of each session, as I'm so excited to go back and learn more. Not only are the lessons very informative, and helpful, but he sends me home with video of what we had gone over in the day. This is extremely helpful! When I practice, I have something to revert back to, to help me remember exactly everything he taught me.

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.

This is Ian's grandmother doing this review, because the emails come to me. All I know is that my grandson is excited every week about his lesson and that is a good review of it right there!

calvin so far is a great teacher I am 78 years old and have had 5 teachers so far and no luck playing the banjo. calvin actually gave me home work which I love. instead of asking me what I want to do. I would not get a teacher if I knew what to do and I love the drop box.

Excellent first lesson. We picked the right guy for our kiddo. He was patient with her and dealt well with her awkwardness. Looking forward to seeing her growth.

"We were new to the whole online, private lesson world and only tried as a test for our 10 yr-old son. He has now been working with Jason for several months now and shows no signs of stopping. Our son is progressing, has gained confidence and still seems to have fun. Jason is on time and if you cannot make a lesson he is flexible in rescheduling if given some notice. Finally, I would be remiss if I didn't mention how much Jason packs into his lessons without overwhelming the student. We highly recommend him!"

"Will is an excellent teacher and will have you strumming a tune by the time you leave the first night. He is able to translate music theory in many ways and will find a method that works for you. He also is not a clock watcher and many times tends to go long on your time. I have been going to him now for over 2 years and have over 100 songs in my notebook now. Give him a try and you will not be disappointed. Makes no difference what style you want to learn just let him know and your off and running."
