Are you a beginner, intermediate or advanced ukulele player interested in learning more chords, notes, strumming patterns, finger picking styles, music theory or how to read tab? Do you just want to get better at that ukulele you've had? Or learn your favorite song for fun?

I personally adore the ukulele, especially as a starter instrument! I've been playing uke for 7 years now, and it's the perfect accompaniment whether you're on stage or in your bedroom. It's easy to travel with, too, if you have a busy life and are always on the go, ukulele is easy to learn and get good at quickly (but you obviously still need to put the practice time in!!) I write a lot of songs on the ukulele & love the unique style and sound it has.

Whether you are planning on performing with it, using it as accompaniment to someone else/yourself, or just want to learn for fun as a hobby, I can teach you all you need to know to meet your ukulele goals! If you have any questions, please message me & let's ...

Ukulele is the perfect stringed instrument to start out on for all ages. With only four strings you can be playing songs from day one. I'd highly recommend anyone wanting to play a stringed instrument to start with the Ukulele.

Scott is awesome! Super knowledgeable in so many instruments, and he works with you to help you learn what you are interested in and establish a strong foundation to be able to grow as a musician. Lessons are always enjoyable, and I appreciate the time and effort he puts in to create tailored, individualized lessons. He has been my teacher for both mandolin and classical guitar. I would highly recommend lessons with Scott!
Jaya
I appreciate Scott's relaxed style. He is able to make a realistic practice schedule for me to fit in to my work week. It is obvious he is very knowledgeable and has given me a lot of good tips so far. I would definitely recommend Scott.
Rush
I took weekly electric guitar lessons with Scott from 2004 to 2012. He is without a doubt an extremely talented, enthusiastic, and compassionate teacher. Whether he was helping me learn basic chords or teaching me complicated songs, Scott never wavered in his dedication to teaching. Over the eight years as his student, Scott gave constructive criticism in a courteous manner. He was on time, inquisitive about the songs and music I was listening to, and ended lesson with new material for me to practice. I wholeheartedly recommend Scott to any aspiring guitar student.

I’ve had my ukulele for over two years, and have done nothing with it. Decided the other day it was time, did a google search and found Alexandra on TakeLessons! I have zero music background but she’s made these lessons SOO simple and effective. I have a long ways to go, yet I leave each lesson with a feeling of accomplishment! Wasn’t expecting this to go so well, 110% satisfied. Thanks Alexander :)

First lesson was great. It took a little time setting up and getting to know each other. For a first lesson, I came away with some very useful information on a song I was having a problem with. I like the direction it is going. Looking forward to the next lesson.

"Thank you Damien!!!! Patient, non-judgmental, slow, clear instruction. I had one particular song I wanted to learn and Damien walked me through, step by step, how to. And in the meantime, taught me a bit about music theory and reading ... at my level. Before I signed up, I felt frustrated and overwhelmed. Now I feel confident and inspired ... taking my "sweet time" to get that muscle memory. The best. Thank you."
