Do you love the folky, relaxed feel of the ukulele and want to create that sound yourself? Do you enjoy music and want to pick up an instrument, but don't yet have the confidence to try the six strings of the guitar? Maybe you want to learn to play music, but you simply don't want your first instrument to be super complicated. If any of these scenarios sound like the situation you're in, the ukulele will be perfect for you. When learning the ukulele, we start by learning a few basics about music and several chords. For most students, this phase takes about 3 to 6 weeks, and after that they're playing their own ukulele version of some of their favorite songs. So what are you waiting for? Let's learn to play the uke!

About Chris
A short history of my experience with music and education:

The first instrument I learned to play was the guitar in 2001.

I played the guitar on the worship team at FBC of Midway in Plant City, FL from 2001 to 2005.

I began teaching private music lessons in 2003.

I played bass guitar in a Christian rock band called of Anastasis from 2003 to 2005.

I played acoustic, electric, and bass guitar on the worship team at Family Worship Center in Lakeland, FL from 2006 to 2012.

I worked as a freelance audio engineer with my in-home recording studio throughout college (and now I just do it for fun).

I played bass and sang background vocals in a worship band called Skyline from 2007 to 2009.

I taught music and trained a student led worship team at Hope Christian Academy from 2009-2010.

I began performing independently from
2009 to present.

I played guitar and sang lead vocals in a Christian Rock Band called A Story Familiar from 2010 to 2012.

From 2010 to 2012, I taught in the Polk County public school system of Florida from 2010 to 2012, where I also worked heavily with students with special needs.

In July of 2012 I moved to Aurora, CO as a volunteer musician to help plant Streams Church.

In January of 2013 I married my beautiful wife.

Upon arriving home from our honeymoon, I was hired as Worship Director for Streams church, and I have worked there since. Some of my responsibilities include developing and executing weekly music set lists, creating charts and sheet music for new songs, and training the worship team in new music.

As for me personally, I love Jesus, my wife, and music.  As I'm sure you can tell by my brief history, I do a lot of church service and ministry, if for this for any reason makes you wary, let me assure you: I play a lot more than just church music.  As a lover of music, there is not much that I don't enjoy in the world of music, and I've taught most of it.  I've taught the young and the not-so-young, and whether you're just beginning to read music, or you're just eager to learn your favorite song, I work closely with you to ensure you achieve the results you desire!

*** Lesson Details ***
Four things I focus on:
1. Creating individualized lesson plans for you
2. Teaching you new techniques and polishing old ones
3. Building your confidence
4. Both of us having a fun, rockin' time!

When taking lessons from me, students can expect an environment that is a balance between being strict and laid back.Music is something that must be learned, and as such, it must also be practiced week-to-week in between lessons.  I consider myself strict because I'll hold you accountable to doing your best to learn the best. Despite holding you accountable, I think the overall mood of the learning environment is laid back; we'll have a lot of fun learning music.  I make sure that we'll be learning at your pace, but keep in mind, this doesn't mean I won't push you to be your best! My teaching experience has taught me one thing: everyone is different. That being the case, I create lesson plans that are unique to you.  Where you will be in a month, six months, a year, largely depends on your commitment to learn, but I'll promise you this:  all of my efforts will be utilized to maximize your potentiality.

*** Attendance Policy ***
I am very flexible with attendance, but I do require a one hour notice that you will not be at the lesson. If a one hour notice is not given, the lesson will be marked as "missed" resulting in payment from your TakeLessons account for the missed lesson.

If you are simply running late, please be sure to let me know-I try to be as flexible as possible, but if the student is over 15 minutes late, I typically mark this lesson as "missed" as well.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I provide the following equipment for in-studio lessons:
Guitar amplifier
Bass amplifier
Drum Set
Computer
iPad
Recording equipment
Music stand
Seating area for parents/guardians to sit/listen in on the lesson

*** Travel Equipment ***
When offering in-home lessons, I provide the following when traveling for in-home lessons: iPad
For in-home lessons, I expect students to have whatever equipment is necessary for learning their instrument of interest (This typically includes at least the student's instrument and a music stand, but may also include a metronome, tuner, etc.).

*** Specialties ***
Rock, Jazz, Blues, Folk, Praise/Worship, Indie

We've only had 2 lessons so far and he is great! He is encouraging, polite, flexible, kind and takes the extra time if needed. He definitely knows how to teach and knows the natural developmental progression to build the foundation for a beginner and explains what the next goals she'll be working towards. He even learned a Justin Bieber song just to make my kid happy. Lol!

Don does an outstanding job! He is able to connect authentically my son and customized the lessons to fit his learning style and needs. Don has drawn so much out of him musically and has also built a community of students that play together. He makes the lessons fun and engaging. He has opened up my 7-year old to the joy of playing and performing and has helped create a love of music. I highly recommend Don as a music teacher.

I am great with kids and have received excellent feedback about my teaching style. I play 5 instruments and teach guitar, ukulele, and bass.

With each lesson you will find a fun and easy to understand way to improve your playing tailored just for you. No internet video can do that.

Simply choose this plan and select the amount of time you would like to work with me. I would suggest messaging me before you schedule, so that I can figure out the best plan for you.

About Michael
Hello future rockstars! Now is the time for you to unlock your potential and take your interest in the guitar to the next level. Whether it is for a future career, a hobby, or just to be able to play a song for your friends, I can develop a personalized plan to get you the results you desire.

I am currently a student at Cal State Fullerton and also a musician with performing and recording experience since the age of 14. My passion for music began ever since I had heard Dazed and Confused by Led Zeppelin on the radio. Since then, I have played in restaurants, weddings, bars and other venues all around Orange County and LA as a lead guitarist, rhythm guitarist, and bassist. The music that I specialize in playing are mostly acoustic, Pop, alternative rock, R&B, and classic rock. I like to song write and record my own music as well and the
refore have acquired a strong attention to detail and solid work ethic to achieve my desired results.

I believe in creating a positive and exciting work environment where we can have you develop at your own pace in a productive way. A great teacher is one that customizes their lesson to fit the student's individual needs while making the lesson educational and fun!

Being that I am one of the younger guitar teachers out there, I am able to better relate to younger students on a more personal level and possess an energetic teaching style and willingness to better myself as a teacher and musician just as much as my student.

Still have some questions before you try a first lesson? I am available to answer your questions! Just message me through this website and I will respond within only a few hours.

Simply put, Andrew is the best. His genuine love and passion for all-things music was obvious the first day we met him. He is great with kids. He is flexible yet reliable. We love the fact that he tailors his lessons, homework, and incentives to the needs and interests of each individual student. We are confident that we could not find a better guitar instructor for our daughter.

About Karney S.

Greeley, CO

The Ukulele is an excellent instrument especially for younger children that would like to get into music. A lot of chords only require one or two fingers to learn and a person can usually start playing their favorite songs in only one or two lessons.

About Karney
I believe the key to the success of the student is that they enjoy what they are doing and gain confidence through the skills they have worked hard to develop.

Several of my students have auditioned for and were accepted as the sole guitar seat in the junior high, high school, and college jazz bands. A few of my younger students received honors in their grade school music programs.

I want to work closely with students to help them develop their own unique pace, methods, and goals that work for them. We’ll work together to not just master their craft, but also find their voice and enjoyment with their instrument.

My goal is to discover what a student wants to learn and their strengths and weaknesses and then cater lessons accordingly.

About Christopher
Flexible teacher combining technical knowledge of classical, jazz, and pop/rock theory, sense of humor, and passion for helping students not just master their craft, but also find their unique voice and enjoyment with their instrument.

I have over 4 years of experience teaching lessons, including teaching seminars on songwriting and music business at Infinity Visual and Performing Arts and Jamestown Community College.

Between 2006 and 2015, I played over 1,000 shows, both solo and as an auxiliary musician for other touring acts. I performed on over 30 albums and have composed for radio, television, and internet video series. I've been featured in The New York Times, on the CBS Evening News, and on NPR.

About Jon S.

Close
San Diego, CA

View Full Profile

I work with the student to develop a curriculum based on their musical interests and my own teaching pedagogy. I strongly feel that for musicians to own their education, they must have a say in what they play. Assigning method books and mindless etudes to practice doesn't have nearly the same effect asking them "Ok, what kind of music do YOU like? What do you want to PLAY? What do you want to LEARN?".

I believe that students learn best when they are invested in a subject, and the best way to get them invested is to individually get to know each one, speak to them on their level, and get them playing music they're interested in.

About Jon
I'm a professional performer, educator, and recording artist. I received my Masters in Music from New Mexico State University, and my BA and BMA from the College of Wooster in Ohio.

Students can expect to improve their technique and performing repertoire within a matter of weeks. We will collaborate to find music that he or she is interested in, plus work on exercises that will build technique and sound quality. It doesn’t matter WHAT you’re playing, but HOW you play it.

I’ve been a musician for over 20 years and played in a wide variety of settings. In lessons, I’ll draw from that experience to help students achieve their musical goals.

As a performing artist, I’ve played in classic big bands, small jazz combos, and R&B style horn sections, just to name a few. I’m passionate about classical music, jazz, R&B, and funk, but good
technique is good technique, and a proficient musician should and can jump from one style to another with ease.
