Albino was born in Maputo, the capital of Mozambique, a country in southern Africa known for its rich musical and cultural heritage.

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!

Great first lesson. We covered a lot of ground, or notes, rather.
btw, you had sent her the wrong date, so she was not expecting me, but we regrouped and had a great time.

Online Ukulele Teacher

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.

About Laura

I have been a teacher since 1996 and a uke teacher since 2015, teaching uke to after school groups. I am a member of Houkulele, Houston's Social Ukulele Club. I have attended Uke Teacher Training courses with Kevin Carroll in Austin. I follow and use James Hill's ukulele in the classroom curriculu

"Omar is a fantastic teacher. He seamlessly figures out where your instruction should begin, and then creates a tailored lesson plan. He is very enthusiastic, encouraging, and knowledgable. I had a great time during my lessons, and I highly recommend Omar to any new Ukulele players."

"Nick is an amazing ukelele teacher! He has been teaching my 9-year-old son for about 8 months now. He is cheerful and enthusiastic, and an undeniable talent. His teaching style is at once relaxed ("feeling" the music over strict adherence to technique), and rigorous (dropping in some heavy music theory early on). He's teaching my son to be a "musician", not just a "ukulele player". He encourages creativity and tailors the lessons to what our son enjoys. He sends a great summary email after each lesson with notes and reminders and things to work on for the next week. And his lessons even carry over nicely to how my son is learning piano. We would recommend him highly."

"My sister bought 5 months of ukulele lessons for my 7-old-daughter as a gift and it has been a wonderful experience! At first, I was a little unsure of how online lessons would work out, especially for a 7-year-old, but Glenn kept my daughter engaged and fielded all technical challenges with grace and skill. He introduced things clearly and systematically, but I was most impressed with his sensitivity to appeal to my daughter's particular interests. Rather than giving her canned kiddy beginner pieces to start with (which certainly would have been easier for him), he asked what songs she liked and then transposed them himself to her level. That takes effort and dedication and really sets Glenn apart. Furthermore, Glenn met Jackie's brother one day and learned that he plays guitar and asked if they wanted something to play together. He evaluated my son's level and again, transposed a wonderful little arrangement for them to play together. It was wonderful that they had such an opportunity and everyone in the family loved getting to hear their duet. Glenn has truly succeeded in establishing a genuine interest in this instrument for my daughter, and I am grateful and touched by the way he tailored a program just for her. She has enjoyed the lessons very much and says she wants to go to California and meet Glenn face-to-face one day."

"Livv is an amazing and a gifted teacher. She’s very knowledgeable, but she’s completely humble. Her easy-going personality makes learning fun and enjoyable. She’s funny and down to earth. Learning a new task can sometimes be very frustrating, but she’s incredibly patient and supportive. She allowed me to learn at a pace that I’m most comfortable with. She adapted to my learning style and tailored the lessons to my desired goals. First of all, I wanted to be able to play the ukulele and secondly, I wanted to be able to play some of my favorite songs on the ukulele. She taught me how to play. She wrote the tabs for the songs I requested. We went over those songs together and my goals were met. In addition to reaching my goals, I’ve learned and reached other objectives along the way. She taught me how to read music in general, how to read chord diagrams, how to read tabs, how to strum and she gave me tips on different ways to play the barre chords. I never thought that I could ever play the dreaded barre chords, but with her guidance and patience, I was able to do that. She communicated with me every step of the way about my progress and what’s on the horizon for the coming week. She’s a well-rounded teacher and she gets my highest recommendation. Livv, thank you for your insights and encouragement throughout my journey."
