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!

Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC
Troy W.
Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

Amazing instructor. Patient and knowledgeable.
Kara
Nick was a patient and enthusiastic teacher. I was nervous to start music lessons in my late 30s, but he made me feel comfortable and I never felt embarrassed. He taught me the songs I was interested in learning, but snuck in music theory and the basics along the way! Highly recommend
Shannon
Nick has done a great job with our 14 year old son! He has a great laid back style that is appreciated and keeps the lessons fun and engaging. Not only is he learning to play some of his favorite songs, but he is also getting ear training, music reading, picking, chord building, etc. We would highly recommend Nick!

In my first 45 minute lesson with Claire, she fixed a technical problem in my fingering that's been holding me back forever, gave me clear instructions and advice for how to practice between our lessons, and was just all around great. I'm more excited and hopeful about breaking through my intermediate plateau than I have ever been.

Private Ukulele Teacher

I have been teaching private piano, violin, guitar, and ukulele lessons for ten years. I won competitions, hundreds of dollars, and a scholarship through the Desert Valley Music Teacher Association (DVMTA). I have written and self-published two piano books with more in the works. I have worked on a Music Theory degree at MCC and plan to transfer to ASU to finish my bachelor's. I help students find the fun in music again with many involved music games and incentive programs. I instill a love and confidence in students of composing their own music from a young age.

I've been teaching ukulele for 15 years. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to strum accompaniments to simple songs. As time goes on you'll be able to play more advanced chords and combine melody with the chords to do solo arrangments. For Children, I typically use The Hal Leonard book "Ukulele for Kids". It's a great book for getting the student up and running very quickly. For Adults the Hal Leonard Ukulele Method book 1 and 2. For someone who has played before The National Guitar Workshop has a uke book that works well for a little more advanced students. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I have been working with Eric for one year and he is an excellent instructor. He is quite knowledgeable, patient, and friendly. He is detailed oriented and provides lots of tips on improving my playing. He is also very flexible and allows me to select what I would like to work on whether it be new skills or selecting music I wish to learn. I would very highly recommend him as an instructor.
Lois
Eric has taught me a lot in 5 months! He is patient but also corrects my technique which I appreciate. He explains the various skills and techniques making sure that I understand them using efficient fingering. He is also left handed which helps me see the mirror image as I am right handed. Highly recommend him!

"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."

"I have taken a lot of lessons over the years. I grew up playing piano and cello, and I’m a professional singer. I knew first hand what a phenomenal musician Nick Russo was, and I had a hunch that he would be a marvelous teacher as well.

Now that I’ve been taking ukulele lessons with Nick for the last three months, it’s clear my hunch was correct. He’s a phenomenal teacher. Patient, clear, willing to explain things in multiple ways. He’s also extremely flexible. Always willing to go in a different direction if that’s what’s needed. And, most of all, he wants his students to have fun with their instrument and he’s always looking for ways to ensure that happens.

Nick is a musician with a huge musical range. In addition to playing many instruments Nick has a broad and deep knowledge of many different musical traditions. It brings a richness to his offering as a teacher which are hard to match.

I can’t recommend Nick highly enough. A wonderful teacher and a kind, compassionate person. If you’re looking for a teacher, you can’t go wrong by choosing to work with Nick!"
