Itati S.
I took 5 lessons with Ed, very great instructor. I learned a lot in those few lessons. He helped with with my pitch and with my accent that I had to prepare for an audition. With his help I was accepted into my high school’s A cappella group “Madrigals” and overall I would recommend. We made it work and tried to make the best out of the situation. Great experience:)
Michael Y.
My kids thoroughly enjoyed lessons with Ed (both guitar and piano). Lessons started with my 7yo and when his brother turned 4yo, he started as well.

Private Ukulele Teacher

I bought my own Ukulele a few years ago and was surprised how much I actually liked it and enjoyed playing. The sound and tones are beautiful on a good instrument and you can play many types of music on it. I have transcriptions for standard tunes, Beatles, Simon and Garfunkle, Train, Monkees, Jasom Mraz, Eagles, and yes... Over the Rainbow.

Pete is the best instructor that I have ever had. He is the only person I ever had that was able to explain things in a way that I could understand. I have taken lessons from other people and was not able to learn anything.

Private Ukulele Teacher

I have been teaching the ukulele for over 10 years to students of all ages, backgrounds, and experience levels. The primary focus is learning chords, techniques, and strumming patterns that we can apply to various popular songs. We will also explore reading sheet music, reading tablature, and understanding music theory. Materials used for this class include various method books, songbooks, and customized lesson plans.

Patrick is a multi-instrumentalist whose teaching method empowers students to discover their own artistry through the vocabulary of theory, style, and musicianship. Shortly before beginning school at Berklee College of Music in Boston in 2002, Patrick began teaching private guitar lessons in his ho

I was impressed with the one on one lessons. I got those lessons from Patrick after I took a group class with him. I learned a lot in that short lesson. A one on one was even better. He used Zoom to make the chord charts and everything available to me. I learned new major and minor chords in the first lesson. He understood my goals and was able to adapt to them and plan future lessons in an efficient way. I recommend lessons from him.

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!

Oh boy, do I love the Ukulele! This instrument is FUN. I became passionate about the ukulele a few years ago.This instrument is fun. We will learn our chords, learn a lot of unique strumming patters and work on our rhythm. We will also learn how to take some classic rock and roll guitar songs and turn them into happy-go-lucky-uke tunes!
This instrument is PERFECT for beginners - adults and children!

I started my musical path in a Ballet Studio. I fell in love with the crackle of the vinyl record playing as I learned to listen and dance with the rhythm. I started playing the guitar when I was in elementary and took classical lessons until I was a teenager.I really enjoy the art of practice

"My son is a BEGINNER beginner. Rodrigo is a very nice guy and seems to know his stuff very well. I would give him 5 stars but I don't think he realized that my son needed the basic, basic 1st lesson (i.e. how to hold the instrument). We've only attended one session so this is fully based on that one lesson. I'm sure he'll adjust his teaching from here on out."
