Aloha!! The ukulele is an incredibly fun instrument to learn! I currently offer lessons from beginner to intermediate levels. My method of teaching ukulele includes learning chords, rhythm, and picking the melodies. You will learn to read tablature and to even sight read with the ukulele if you so desire! Otherwise, you can learn to play beautiful ukulele chords and sing along!

In these lessons you will learn:
*How to make chord shapes and eliminate buzzing/muted strings
*Build knowledge and skills through learning 30+ chords on the ukulele
*Strum patterns (from easy to advanced)
*Rhythm and how to keep a beat, plus more complex rhythms
*How to sing along with your ukulele accompaniment
*Basic music theory knowledge to help you understand concepts
*How to pick the strings
*The notes on the ukulele
*How to read tablature
*To expand and have fun playing such a relaxing instrument!

Also, I love to teach children and adults alike! No one is too young or old to ...

Private Ukulele Teacher

Ukulele students start with five subjects.

1) Technique is concerned with the development of the physical mechanics involved in playing the instrument.

2) Scales are a part of basic music vocabulary and building blocks of the musical language.

3) Chords are also basic vocabulary of the musical language.

4) Note reading is not required for every student. It really depends on the students' goals. However, I strongly encourage everyone learn to read musical notation, (more than tablature). Literacy in reading music is analogous to literacy in reading in our English language. Can you imagine how much smaller our world would be if we couldn't read?

5) Songs utilize the skills and concepts of all the previously mentioned subjects and are the goal of studying music. The student chooses what songs they want to play, guided by my suggestions; Jazz, rock, blues, country, bluegrass, R &B - "How deep is the ocean, how high is the sky?"

A beginning student will practice ...

Phil is a naturally gifted teacher. He listens well and took time to understand what I feel I need to concentrate on right now. He knows how to work with a person effectively.

Private Ukulele Teacher

I have been teaching ukulele for 2 yrs, with experience working with individuals and groups. I love working with all ages! As a board-certified music therapist, I also have extensive training for working with people with disabilities. Whether you have some experience or you are brand new to the ukulele, I am excited to help you improve your skills with reading and playing from chord charts, experimenting with different strumming patterns and techniques, accompanying your voice or another instrument, reading written notation and fingerpicking, and playing full songs quickly! I find the most successful students have input in their musical journey, so I am eager to hear about your desires and goals so that I can customize my approach to motivate you and nurture your growth. Most of my materials are open source, so the cost of books (if any) will be minimal, depending on your desired focus. I am so thrilled to start uking with you!

Aisling is an amazing teacher! She is very motivating, patient and explains things very well. Within a few days I was comfortable enough to play and sing a whole song in my own and I am now able to pick up new songs a lot quicker. She has taught me some great basic techniques which I’m able to apply to many songs. Although our lessons started in-home, I am looking forward to continuing our lessons online and improving on my techniques even more. Thanks Aisling!
Eline
Aisling is a very supportive and enthusiastic teacher. She knows what she is talking about and one can easily tell how much she loves music. She does not hold back on giving compliments and she is almost happier about a succeeding piece than I was myself. She is very easy going which makes it easier to take instructions from her. The lessons were nice and relaxed; something you really want when learning how to play an instrument.
English is not my first language but she made it understandable. And during the lessons there was always room for some laughter and jokes.
I would definitely recommend Aisling as a teacher.
Mark Johnson
Aisling has been a delightful, dynamic, and polished professional from the start. We asked that she would come once (sometimes twice) a week to give lessons to my nephew who was living with us at the time. Jordan (our nephew) was 2 at the time. I believe it was very helpful and useful for us. Now, Jordan is back in India and is 4 years old. His comprehension of English and all of his locally-spoken languages is incredible. I'd highly recommend her services to everyone.

For students who have played an instrument prior to our lessons, I try and shape a curriculum entirely based upon the specific goals of the student, and I rarely use text books although I use a lot of exercises and educational material when appropriate.  I feel learning to play and transcribe songs and solos to increase a students self reliance and confidence is my most important job.  

Most students come to me looking for structure so I try and provide a clear path to their goals. For students with no prior musical experience I use text books and exercises to strengthen their technique, expose them to musical ideas, and give them a foundation for basic theory.  After that is accomplished I move into a curriculum that is more personal to their specific goals.

He pays attention to detail, is super organized with a definite plan and knows how to keep a student's interest. He is balanced and very realistic in his approach. He is talented and meets the student where he is. He is even transcribing a Bollywood song for my son and my son is loving it! He is flexible... We are so happy to have found him.
