I picked up the ukulele a couple years ago and happy to teach beginner ukulele. The student will know how to finger pick and strum chords with or without singing along. Students will also learn a couple classic ukulele music and also popular songs.

She asked me what I wanted to learn and assisted me in a very patient way, and showed me the correct way of strumming and whatever else that was needed. A very good start.
Alyson
Felicia is a great teacher! We work well together, she asks how I want to learn and she helps me to understand what I’m learning! As an adult learner, it helps that she can modify my lesson to suit my specific needs. I think this will be a great partnership!!
Autumn
Felicia has truly helped me improve on the viola. From spotting my wrong bow hold to making sure that I am absolutely positive on where the fingerings are for the key, she has most definetly improved my playing over all and is helping me advance past most of my peers in my school orchestra.

Chloe is one of the best teachers I have encountered relative to her knowledge, skills, understanding of how to train children and her desire to see her students excel. She is vested in her students. Thank you for the awesome job you do with my kids. I have seen remarkable progress in their singing since you started ( I can say that because I am also a classically trainer singer)
Alyssa
Chloe is amazing! I have taken music theory/ voice lessons from her for over a year now, and have learned so much! She helped me pass my choir class in school and advance in an after school choir. 100% recommend her skills! She definitely knows her stuff :)

Online Ukulele Teacher

I especially enjoy introducing beginners of all ages to the ukulele, which was my first musical passion as a young child! These days, my passion is working with my students in ways that prepare them to pursue their musical interests armed with correct posture and hand position, foundational technique, music-reading capabilities, and what I call the "building blocks" of music: knowledge of functional music theory and how to use it.

"Functional music theory" can sound daunting, but in fact it is fascinating, at least the way I teach it, using analogies appropriate to the age of the student, from chords like different types of sandwiches (yum!) to chord progressions like the materials and equipment used to build a house.

I also encourage my students from the start to EXPRESS themselves musically, emotionally, playfully, in ways that keep their imaginations engaged in their musical studies, rather than private lessons becoming stressful or tedious.

Note that young beginners ...

She is a good teacher! Kind, and very informative.

Teresa is an amazing music teacher! This was my first time getting singing lessons, and I was really nervous going into it, but she did such a great job at helping me feel more comfortable in the beginning. She’s so kind and she’s a great teacher too. The techniques and skills that she taught me have been extremely helpful, and she teaches them in a really easy-to-understand way. I would definitely recommend her!

Teresa is very nice, she teaches my first lesson with her heart as well as her knowledge and skills.

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 have had the opportunity to really stretch the limits of the ukulele because of the classes I teach with the instrument. In addition to the typical strum-along style of Uke playing, I can teach the Ukulele in a great deal of styles and using a great number of techniques.

About Jared

I am overjoyed and grateful to say I have been teaching music since 2008. I am a very friendly and fun teacher with a great deal of professionalism and patience. More importantly, I love teaching and playing music with a passion. I play a great variety of instruments and have had the opportunity

5 star teacher - coach and mentor - Great patience for a beginner like myself - never played before but now I’m comfortable easing into lessons - he shows you why your playing and then guides you through the lessons at your own pace - he also has the latest technologies to help - like overhead screens and sheet music that you can understand- I just signed up for another discount series of 7 lessons - I never give reviews but in this case if I can help someone who us not sure were to start - he is the perfect instructor-

Jared is an excellent piano teacher. Highly recommend!!

Was very kind, and very good at teaching. He’s a teacher who is able to make the learning fun.

"Prior to finding Ethan on TL, I was really in a deep rut with playing my Uke. I was self taught and thought I had learned everything I could on my own. Ethan exposed my to techniques and ideas on the Ukulele I never would have imagined or found on my own! He's very courteous and the most patient teacher I've ever experienced. Unfortunately, I moved out of MN for work, but I'm considering starting online lessons with him :)"

In just a short time (maybe 6 lessons), she's learned so much and plays many songs already and has had almost no exposure to any instrument to this point. Plus, you can't help but smile when there's a Ukulele being played in the house! Thank you Jesse for sharing your gift and passion of music to others."
