Private Ukulele Teacher

Ukulele is an interesting instrument with a lot of similar characteristics to guitar. I have been playing ukulele for the past year now and it's substantially easier to play and faster to learn then guitar, but you can develop skills that will transfer over to the guitar.

About Jeremie

I'm a self taught guitarist who has been playing for 20 years. I have played professionally in numerous bands and ensembles ranging from jazz to folk to rock, and I've been writing music for the same length of time. I currently perform with one of my students from TakeLessons named Mackenzie O'Brie

About Ian

I started playing guitar originally in 1991. I picked up bass and ukulele (and then over the ensuing years, gradually a plethora of other instruments, such as voice, drums, piano, and harp). I started teaching in 2001 throughout the Chicagoland area. First in music stores, then schools, then people

Excellent!

First lesson was great. It took a little time setting up and getting to know each other. For a first lesson, I came away with some very useful information on a song I was having a problem with. I like the direction it is going. Looking forward to the next lesson.
Krista S.
Well hello there budding musician- I started taking ukulele lessons with nearly zero previous experience and little idea what to expect a few months ago. As a teacher, Ian is extremely patient, accommodating, and attentive, but remains very much human throughout the whole process. His years spent teaching across instruments, ages, and levels of expertise make for a trustworthy experience. Definitely recommend.

I play guitar, ukulele, charango, piano, and I sing! I've been a musician since 2000, and I've successfully turned a hobby into something my husband and I have been doing full time for several years. For beginners, something that works best is taking a song that you LOVE and turning it into your anthem on the instrument of your choice. So pick your song and message me!

Loren was the best teacher for my son. She was so patient with him especially since he was not the most focused student. I would recommend her as a teacher anytime.

"Had my first lesson with Matthew last night. He was great - quickly figured out my skill level, and came up with some songs that fit me well. They were easy enough that I can learn them, but with some challenging parts to make it fun. The pace of the lesson was great; we mixed teaching with playing, and he even threw in some intro music theory tidbits to help me understand better what I was doing. I left motivated to practice, and I'm looking forward to my next lesson."

"Francesca is absolutely fantastic. I did a LOT of research when I was selecting a teacher. The teacher had to be multi-faceted (I wanted to explore singing, performing, and learning guitar/ukulele). The teacher had to have positive energy: there's nothing worse than a boring teacher. They had to be personable, communicate well and be NICE, but still be demanding when needed (to keep us challenged and excited and *learning*!). And finally, they had to have No Big Ego -- that is crucial to me, and very hard to find when you find someone that is very good at what they do.

Well, Francesca is ALL of those positive qualities. She knows her stuff, communicates very efficiently (and nicely!). She has a huge range of skills and talents -- from very professional skills/talents while still being able to do/show very down-to-earth personal performances (check out her videos of her performances -- you can see she is very skilled but also very personable -- a rare combination).

Another HUGE quality is her ability with kids. While I am an adult, it was very telling about what kind of *teacher* Francesca is by seeing her be successful with Kids. When I would arrive a bit early for my lessons, often she was just finishing up the last few minutes with a child. She is VERY good with children -- and that is a skill in itself. It's one thing to communicate well with adults; a whole other talent to be "fun" and inspirational to kids! And Francesca does that extremely well. The children learn and have fun doing it -- you can tell by the interactions that the kids are excited and are learning and doing well... of course that equals Fun (and keeps them motivated to learn more). If you have children that want to learn any musical instrument, I would highly recommend Francesca.

All in all, I am very happy I found her. I have learned SO much in just my first several lessons that I am very pleased with the VALUE of her teaching -- some teachers may be cheaper in cost, but if it takes 5 times longer to learn from a semi-good teacher, you end up spending more and getting less, and taking more time. The old saying applies here: "You get what you pay for."

If there were 6 stars available, Francesca would get that rating from me."
