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 15 year-old son started guitar this summer. He has truly enjoyed working with Chris. Chris is patient and encouraging, as well as being a cool guy that my son looks up to.
Helen
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!
Brian
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!

Did you know the Ukulele is tuned exactly like the top 4 strings of a guitar capoed up 5 frets, and the 4th string is tuned an octave up? this being the case, all the shapes one learns on one or the other is transferable knowledge! Want to know more about nature's most accessible chording instrument? Give Uke lessons a try.

As an adult learner, I was put at ease and able to work on songs I was interested in right away. Wonderful teaching style.

I've had a great experience with Rick so far. He quickly identified my level of play and has provided good content for me to learn as well as new styles. Very knowledgeable on banjo, I would recommend to anyone looking to improve their banjo skills.

A great instrument to begin with and to learn the basics of music, but also a great secondary instrument to learn from a new perspective. Whether you are just getting started or have been playing for years and have found yourself in a rut and want to refresh and do some new things, ukulele lessons will help you to set and realize your goals in music.

I have been playing the ukulele for approximately 8 years. Combined with my knowledge of music theory and guitar, I can teach whatever techniques one would be interested in learning on the ukulele. We can explore chord voicings and arrange songs for the ukulele or we can stick to the easier and more well known things such as Somewhere over the rainbow and Mele Kalikimaka :)

Want to learn how to play your favorite songs? Want to get over stage fright and build some confidence on stage or in the studio? Would you like help writing your first song? I am an experienced working musician and over the last 13 years have done it all from touring, recording, writing songs and releasing an album through a label and would love to help you reach your goals whether it be playing your first open mic or preparing to record in a studio. I currently teach at Musicians Institute in Hollywood and have 4 years teaching experience under my belt and would love to impart the things I have learned the hard way so you won't have to!

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!

Online Ukulele Teacher

I started teaching while in college - being able to share my passion for music is great! I graduated from Slippery Rock University in 2017 with my BA in Music Therapy. I am currently a board certified music therapist working in a local nursing home. My music therapy background allows me to approach lessons with a creative hands-on approach. I like to get beginners playing as soon as I can! I also include ear training and theory to round out lessons.

​ I am a good teacher because I get it ... I remember what it was like to be learning piano. It's like it's own language! I am kind and patient and I want to develop a lifelong desire for music.
Also, I promise I will not poke your fingers with a pencil if you mess up fingerings.

About Amanda

I remember my very first piano lessons - taught by my mom because she wasn't convinced that piano was something I would stick with. I was so excited! Music was fun! Well not always fun ... the songs got harder and my fingers had to learn how to move in unnatural ways. Sometimes I would get frustrat

Amanda has been absolutely amazing. She has developed a curriculum tailored to my daughter’s current levels and goals. Amanda also has the rare ability to balance the need to make practices light and fun while cramming a lot of content into them.

I would give the highest recommendation possible to Amanda.
