Private Ukulele Teacher

I transfer my very thorough knowledge of the layout of the guitar directly to the Ukulele. The Ukulele is tuned in a similar fashion to the top four strings of the guitar, so all scales, chords, and other musical materials are easily transposed for the Ukulele. Let play together!

Ethan is easy going and knows how to relate to my son who is reserved. He inspires my son to do more and dive deeper and gives constructive criticism in a way that inspires the student. My son would not have been prepared to apply to college music programs if it had not been for Ethan's knowledge of all things music, and his ability to teach and share it with my son. Because Ethan is actually out in the world making a living in the music industry and comes from a classic music school background he has so much to offer an aspiring musician and composer. And, he is on time and dependable.

This instructor is skilled at individualizing lesson plans for students of various skill levels and patient with students. I started out learning guitar with no previous experience, and I learned much within the first few lessons. I highly recommend Ethan as your music instructor!

Ethan is the best instructor I have had in helping me increase my skill in playing the bass guitar. He doesn't use a cookie cutter approach to instructing, but pays attention to where you are at and is very good at identifying what skills and knowledge are needed to help you move forward. Ethan is extremely talented as a musician and composer. His knowledge and understanding of music theory is impressive. I've really appreciated the opportunity to learn from him.

Private Ukulele Teacher

The ukulele is a friendly-looking instrument. While the basics may be a little easier to pick up on than the guitar, strum patterns still might come as a challenge. I enjoy breaking down strum patterns of popular songs like "Riptide" and "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" to help students play them just like the song. Beyond the beginner level, I enjoy showing how the ukulele can be treated like a small classical guitar, playing virtuosic pieces on the travel-size instrument.

About Chris

Chris grew up hearing his dad play guitar around the house and at live shows. He “caught the bug” around age 13 and hasn’t stopped playing since! He’s been teaching guitar since 2003 and received his Bachelor of Arts in Music at North Central University in 2008 where he studied jazz, blues, rock, c

My 13-years old son was reluctant to take music lessons. He had not liked piano (with a different instructor) when he was younger, but agreed to try guitar. Since the first trial lesson, he has been excited to learn more!

Chris is a fun teacher who knows his stuff and who communicates well with both his students and their parents. I have three kids and have found it’s difficult to find a teacher who is responsive to parents + engaging with youth + gifted at music.

His rates are very reasonable for our area. His in-home lesson space is professional and comfortable — I get to sit on a comfy couch and get work done during my son’s weekly lesson. In addition, Chris goes above and beyond to make sure the lessons are meeting our expectations. He tracked down strings for us when we accidentally broke one. He has rescheduled lessons due to our busy schedules. He is genuinely kind and such a pleasure to work with — we couldn’t be more thrilled!

Our kids have loved working with Chris. He picks songs they're excited to play, teaches them patiently, and has a lot of fun with them. They've made a ton of progress since they started with Chris, and they're always excited to see him!

My son really enjoys Chris as his Ukelele teacher. Chris is flexible, approachable and honest about my son's progress.

Don does an outstanding job! He is able to connect authentically my son and customized the lessons to fit his learning style and needs. Don has drawn so much out of him musically and has also built a community of students that play together. He makes the lessons fun and engaging. He has opened up my 7-year old to the joy of playing and performing and has helped create a love of music. I highly recommend Don as a music teacher.

Online Ukulele Teacher

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 nearly 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 currently perform with one of my students from TakeLessons named Mackenzie

"Learn the rules like a pro, then break them as an artist" - Pablo Picasso

As a music producer, mix engineer and artist, I understand the need for proficiency as well as the artistry. My approach to teaching is customized to each individual as we are not all the same. I pay close attention to how each person learns and work with what the student can excel in. When needed we will do drills or work on theory or break down your technique to overcome any obstacles. With my industry expertise, I can help you become a proficient musician and help develop your style and artistry.

I look forward to working with you!

I'm re-learning the piano with David and he has changed my relationship to music for the better. After only a few lessons with David I've gotten a greater understanding of music theory than I had in my few years of early piano training. He is patient and flexible with his style of teaching. If it's taking me awhile to understand a concept he's good at explaining it more clearly. I definitely recommend him for learning the piano!

Christian J.
David is a highly skilled multi-instrumentalist and producer. I was introduced when he recorded an EP for my band and since then, we've spent many an evening talking about performing, recording, teaching and making music. He is kind, patient and extremely knowledgable about his craft. I always learn something new, interesting and immediately applicable to my playing when I work with him. I've had the privilege of sharing the stage with some of his students and they have always been exceptionally professional and prepared. I highly recommend David for lessons in whatever discipline you request - the crossover knowledge from all of his experiences will be invaluable to you.

David has exceeded my expectations. He is a fantastic teacher and person. I look forward to continue to acquire the skills necessary to play the guitar with his help and guidance. I am so lucky that he is there for me.
