I am genuinely passionate about your success in becoming the best ukulele player you choose to be! I like to teach with repetition (wax on wax off) and prefer to present the big picture first so that every obstacle may potentially never be an obstacle for you. I take years of teaching experience and what have been topics of frustration brought to me from students in the past. I try to smooth the road and teach you, so you get the highest yield of success for your money with as little headaches as possible :)

Greg is a talented and patient instructor. I would recommend him to anyone needing to learn playing the guitar.
David Hickman
Greg is the best bass teacher around! I've been working with him for a couple of months and my bass playing and general musicality has grown as a result. He takes a passionate interest in creating or finding exercises that enhance each musician's skill and goals. If you're serious about learning bass, Greg is the teacher you want in your corner.
Dan
Greg is so knowledgeable, and gives very practical advice. He is great to work with. I will continue to take lessons from Greg as I learn and (almost) perfect techniques.

I have learned so much in a short time. I look forward to working more with Greg. He is the best instructor ever!

Undisputed fact: playing ukulele is lots of FUN!

I love playing ukulele. It’s fun, it’s easy to learn, and people get a big kick out of it! Chords are easy to play and the technique is simple. Whether you are picking up an instrument for the first time or adding to your current repertoire, ukulele is always a great choice.

Every single lesson is designed just for you. We focus on your goals while having fun playing music together. We talk about good practice habits and how to achieve new heights with your abilities. You learn to play songs that you recognize as well as improvising your own.

Together we will discover the many roles that the ukulele can have including rhythms, melodies, fingerpicking, and solos. I will also help you understand the fundamental principles of music. This will take the guess work out of your playing, enabling you to make solid choices with consistent results.

Talk to you soon!

Great instructor ! He knows to shift focus towards what you need to work on. As soon as the instructions are given or the questions he asks you feel relief because the energy is going towards what you already feel you need to work on and not just moving on to the next lesson. The tailored lessons make for a low pressure learning environment to fit your needs. As long as your consistant with receiving his lessons you will get where you want to be with your talents and be jammin out soon.

Taking up Ukulele was a great way to look at music from a new perspective. I love teaching ukulele to younger kids who cannot make chords on a guitar quite yet as well as adults who are serious musicians that have been playing for years. I welcome everyone from the novice to the hobbyist and do my best work with student requests.

It is my goal as a teacher to give you the tools to play music but more importantly to create music.

My Teaching Philosophy
The Uke is a wonderful instrument that any style of music can be played on. From pop hits of today to pop hits of the 1920's, classical, jazz and beyond.
We will start by learning all of our chords, strum patterns as well as basic melodies. Then progress into finger picking and "claw-hammer" style of uke playing.

Left Hand-
Scales and arpeggios our the bedrock of music. They are the foundation of everything harmonically and melodically. We will begin with learning our major, minor and pentatonic scales and corresponding arpeggios. Once we have an understanding of those we will delve into our modes and more “exotic” scales.

Right Hand-
The right hand is our time machine. It gives us the ability to play in time and with groove and feel. We will work on rhythmic studies string crossings and practicing with a metronome. Remembering music is ...

"Jessica is an amazing teacher! A few months ago I was having trouble learning the ukulele and I decided to start lessons with her. It was a great decision because ever since then I have learned way more than I could on YouTube! She is everything you want in a teacher, so helpful, supportive, fun, easy going, and kind. She has brought me so much further as a player and now I can write songs, have learned 15 of my favorite songs, am learning how to combine my instrument with others on my computer, and understand music so much more than ever. Thank you Jessica:)"

"I've been taking online lessons with Phil for almost two years now and have been enjoying every minute of it. It is very seldom you come across someone who truly loves music and shines through in teaching style. His love for music is an inspiration for me. Phil is an experienced professional, reliable, enthusiastic and his lessons are always meaningful and productive. If you're wanting to learn how to play the guitar or uke, Phil is the guy. Never to late to learn how to play an instrument. He is the best. ;-)"

One Easy Trick to Convert Guitar Chords to Ukulele Chords | TakeLessons

Are you trying to learn a song on ukulele but can only find guitar chords? I’ve played guitar all my life and have a collection of Gibson and Epiphone Les Pauls. For my birthday a few years ago, my girlfriend bought me an electric Les Paul-style ukulele. I’d never played a uke before -- ever. I had to go online to even find out how to tune the thing! Undaunted, I discovered the standard tuning is from the top string G – C – E – A. The G string is thinner than the C string, sort …
