I started teaching in 2001 throughout the Chicagoland area. First in music stores, then schools, then people

Excellent!
William Z.
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've been teaching ukulele for 4 years helping students develop a love for the instrument and learn more about music along the way. Ukulele is a great instrument for an introduction into stringed instruments and as a casual pastime, but when pursued seriously can be as rigorous as any other. Within the first few lessons you'll have a solid base of strumming patterns and chord changes and even a few simple songs under your belt. Moving on from there I will craft lessons to move you toward a "goal song," making sure to cater your progress to your needs while keeping a focus on good technique. I enjoy working with students of all ages and experiences and I can't wait to meet you!

Great first lesson, Ryan!

He seemed angry and disinterested, not really wanting to teach the lesson. Bad experience and bad teacher in general.

Students always seem surprised when I tell them they can learn any song on the ukulele. Any song? Yes, any song! Even if there's not a ukulele in it! I'll show you chords, scales, technique, and ear training so you can play ANY SONG!

You can hear me play ukulele in the videos section on my profile!

Online Ukulele Teacher

I've been teaching acoustic guitar for 7 years (since I was a teen myself!) and ukulele for about 3. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to read and play from basic tabs, and as time goes on we can work on songs you pick yourself. I generally don't teach ukulele students to read sheet music unless they ask; this is because in the "real world" of playing musicians, ukulele players almost never use actual sheet music. Students should have and bring their own ukulele. I will work with students ages 6+, but I recommend waiting until the individual student has sufficient hand size/strength to feel comfortable reaching several chord shapes.

About Maya

- I am classically trained in piano and music theory (attended college for both from the age of 15) and have a strong emphasis on music theory and good technique in my lessons, but I also understand the importance of ear training.

UKULELE is a VERSATILE and FUN instrument with the potential to play any kind of music that you like, not just tin pan alley or kids tunes. I specialize in working with beginners who have no music background but lots of enthusiasm to play.

Learn to read music notation with your ukulele, learn to sing and strum chords so you play music with others to entertain yourself and your friends and family. I encourage participation at local open mics and uke groups for the intermediate students. For more advanced students we embark on a study of complex pieces of music and focus on performance goals.

Laura, is a wonderful person and a talented musician .
She worked with me to develop a realistic lesson plan that made since and set goals that were achievable. She was always available when I had questions and on time for our lessons, and accommodating when I wasn't able to make a schedule lesson time due to conflicts. Unfortunate I wasn't able to maintain my commitment and had to step away from the online format.

I highly recommend Laura!
