I've been teaching ukulele for 5 years and love seeing my students discover their own musicality and style through ukulele! I specialize in teaching school-age kids, teens, adult beginners, and secondary instrument learners.

As a ukulele beginner, you’ll learn to keep your strumming steady while changing between 2-5 basic chords within a few lessons. You will find in just a few lessons that the songs you know and love are actually accessible and playable! With continued practice, you’ll start to create your own songs using the chords you know, and you will learn more complex chords, transposing, and reading melodies on the staff.

I'll make your lessons meaningful to you, by creating many of my own visual aids to meet your level and interests. We will blend your favorite modern genres with “classic” and “classical” tunes, and explore composition and songwriting along the way! I strive to always give you just enough detailed, technical instruction for the day, while leaving the ...

Sarah is a kind and knowledgeable hoop instructor. I couldn’t hoop on my waist at all when I started taking lessons with her and now I am able to keep the hoop going indefinitely. And while working to improve my waist hooping I learned a variety of off-body tricks and combinations. Sarah is great at tailoring lessons to any skill level and focusing on your individual goals and limitations. She is also really friendly, approachable, and open to feedback. I would definitely recommend!

I have taken both in-person group classes and online group classes with Sarah. She always does a great job of catering to the students' levels and including some things everyone can do as well as some new things for everyone to learn!

Sarah is such a wonderful teacher with just the right balance of patience, sterness, and fun, perfect for my young child just learning to play.

Carolyn has and is exactly what I was looking for in a voice coach. Like me, her interests in the performing arts are broad. I felt both excited and comfortable with her. She is professional and easy to talk to. I can sense strongly that Carolyn is full of love and compassion. I am so excited for the next lesson! Here's to the new horizon and everything in between! :) Thank you Carolyn for reassuring me that my decision to switch careers was a wise decision indeed. Dance forward.

My first lesson with Carolyn was very positive. She quickly assessed where I was and started from that point so we didn't waste time. She showed great passion for songwriting and a genuine interest in my development.

Unlike many instructors who simply use the same cookie-cutter method in their teaching, I believe in adapting to each individual student for consistent progress. By meeting them "where they are," focusing on their learning style, and developing a systematic approach to fixing bad habits and eliminating weaknesses in their playing, every single one of my students achieves musical growth, command of the instrument, and an overarching love of music.

My two decades of professional experience both as performer and instructor allows me to draw on multiple methods, exercises, and repertoire that will help you develop your full potential while always enjoying your musical journey.

About Geronimo

Music has been a passion of mine since I can remember, both as a performer and as a pedagogue. I have experienced firsthand the transformative, healing, and communicative power of music, so my ultimate goal is to share my expertise through teaching and performing. I am a classically-trained viol

I took lessons from Geronimo for a few years and I really developed a lot under his teaching. He is very good at pinpointing issues and also fixing bad habits. He also helped me to become better at practicing, which is extremely helpful. Overall a great teacher and would highly recommend.
Hairong
My daughter took lessons with Geronimo for two years while he was pursuing his PhD at the University of Oklahoma. Geronimo is a great instructor. He is very clear, concise, and effective in communicating with kids during the lesson. It's very easy to follow and understand him even for younger kids. He uses every minute of each lesson in teaching, and truly cares about educating kids on musics. Geronimo emphasizes skills and techniques, which offered my daughter a solid foundation to move up (she has been attending Oklahoma Youth Orchestra for one year). Thank you, Geronimo for being a great instructor!
Katey
Geronimo was a great instructor and motivator! He helped me find the right sound and worked with my strong suits as well as helping me strengthen my weaknesses. I would recommend him to any player as he showed me ways to become more confident and enhance my playing.

I have been teaching for over 12 years. The combination of learning technique, music and having fun all at the same time is priceless! No matter what age you are or your ability (beginning, intermediate or advanced), there are no boundaries when it comes to music!

About Wolfgang

Wolfgang was born in Vienna, Austria and raised in the United States. He began his violin studies at age 7. Wolfgang studied with Zona Miller- Pueblo Symphony Orchestra from 1969-1977 and Jessi Ceci- concertmaster of the Denver Symphony Orchestra from 1977-1979. Majoring in violin performance, he

Christopher
My son has been a student of Wolfgang’s for almost three years now, and in our opinion he is just the best! We’re so grateful to have found him. Not only is he an expert musician, he’s also an expert teacher. It’s not easy to find that combination!

Wolfgang is patient, kind, and funny. He’s always upbeat, and always always gentle and encouraging. At the same time, he has a knack for challenging his students and making them want to work hard for him. He has a deep knowledge of music, and once you progress beyond the beginner level he can really help you with theory, technique, and an endless supply of useful tips about how to get the most out of practice, how to tackle a challenging piece, and how to approach a performance. He has an enthusiasm for his subject that is infectious. Our son has really made amazing progress under Wolfgang’s guidance.

We’ve always found Wolfgang to be super flexible and easygoing on the admin side. We never felt the kind of sales pressure from him that you sometimes get with music schools and teachers. He accommodates our scheduling needs with no pressure and no guilt, and always communicates promptly whenever there might be something on his end that would affect a lesson. In short he’s a real pro, the total package, and you won’t regret hiring him as a teacher.
Erik
I'm extremely happy to have found Wolfgang Track as a violin teacher. Unlike previous teachers I have had, he is extremely patient and easy-going. He delivers instruction and advice very well, making lessons comfortable and engaging.

I am an adult student with a full-time job. Needless to say, I need a teacher that can maintain a flexible schedule and understand my time limits. Wolfgang does both, but never makes me feel like I am "falling behind" or "losing momentum". He is very good at making sure that I feel like I am continuously progressing, which continues to keep me focused.

I can't recommend his services enough. Any student would do well with Wolfgang as an instructor.
Cynthia
My son worked with Wolfgang for close to six years. We absolutely lived Jim. Patient and fun for all ages.
