Ukulele is a fun beginner instrument and is easier on the fingers than guitar, but it can also be used to play any kind of music, no matter how unlikely or complicated. I play jazz on them sometimes, and there are countless videos on YouTube of uke players attempting heavy metal and actually pulling it off.

About David

I am a 32-year old Massachusetts native and have been playing music since I was 8 years old, starting on the piano with a wonderful teacher in Beverly who also went to Berklee. I picked up the guitar and the bass in high school and got into rock, jazz and blues and haven't looked back. I received

Private Ukulele Teacher

Ukulele:
Sometimes abbreviated to uke, it is a member of the lute family of instruments; it generally employs four nylon or gut strings or four courses of strings. Some strings may be paired in courses, giving the instrument a total of six or eight strings. The ukulele originated in the 19th century as a Hawaiian adaptation of the Portuguese machete, a small guitar-like instrument, which was introduced to Hawaii by Portuguese immigrants, mainly from Madeira and the Azores. The tone and volume of the instrument vary with size and construction. Ukuleles commonly come in four sizes: soprano, concert, tenor, and baritone. If you just want to play songs I'm happy to teach you the songs you love. I can also teach you to become a musician by teaching from the beginning with the very basics of finger placement, reading, notes, rhythms, songs, scales, theory and improvisation....or, we can do both!

Karen is an incredibly skillful teacher. She is very passionate about music and it easy to be comfortable with her. She shares her training and knowledge very clearly. The vocal exercises seem very unique and holistic for body and voice health. She is very encouraging, caring, and soul-uplifting. I feel like I have a new connection with my voice and all that is connected to using it... as an instrument and the journey is only just starting. 45 minutes went by so fast. I am looking forward to my next lessons.

Catherine
I thought I wanted to take viola lessons. Then I read her website and I realized that she might be able to help me get my voice back! I thought there was no hope ever. She has been extremely generous with her time, and I haven't seen her yet, but I'm not buying the viola I was planning on buying. I play cello, and piano still, but I am going to see if she can help me with my voice. She sounds incredible. I never dreamed that I could even have HOPE like this!

About Albino

Albino was born in Maputo, the capital of Mozambique, a country in southern Africa known for its rich musical and cultural heritage. Fueled by the resourcefulness and determination that have always characterized Mozambicans, he built his first guitar at 16 from a 5-liter can of oil, scrap wood, and

I recently began singing again after a year and was very unconfident in my voice and my ability to improve. Albino was the perfect instructor for someone like me because of his patience and positivity. He was able to point out issues with my singing technique or provide feedback in a very positive way, without seeming critical. Whenever I was confused about something, he would work with me non-stop until I understood. Albino inspires confidence in all his students, and I highly recommend him as a teacher!

Kat is a thoughtful and gifted teacher, and is great with kids! She is teaching my 7 year old to sing, and play the ukulele. She has been such an inspiration to my daughter who had previously been frustrated and discouraged by taking lessons from two prior teachers, so much so my daughter wants to take up guitar and possibly songwriting in the future. My daughter always looks forward to lessons with Kat. I am also happy she practices and does her homework because she wants and chooses to do so, and not because I am bugging her about it! It's so refreshing and such a relief! Kat has a special way of connecting and encouraging my daughter to develop her passion to sing and play music. Thank you Kat! Keep up the great work!

I believe that music can be an amazing outlet for everyone, and also a great confidence builder. Everyone learns at different rates and in different ways, and I try to teach in the way that best fits that individual. My key teaching strategies are patience, communication, and fun. The best way to learn is to play the music you love, and discover a passion for playing. Learning to create and appreciate music stimulates the mind and can allow you to see the world in brand new ways.

Jordan provides that structure during lessons and homework assignments but allows for individual initiative and efforts. He listens to my goals and helps me accomplish them by moving me ahead at a good pace and continually helping me fine tune what I have already learned. He is not intimidating and wants to see me have fun playing music. He also provides an environment for learning good musical habits and techniques."
