Learning to play the Ukulele is so much fun! Young and old alike enjoy being able to play chords in just a few short lessons to favorite songs. This instrument is especially great for little ones- it's a great starter to string instruments of all types. You can find an inexpensive but good quality Ukulele at most music stores. I teach chords, rhythm and individual note reading so students enjoy themselves while learning to read music!

The Uke is growing in popularity because of it's ease of playing and how much fun it is to play. A great starter instrument to branch onto guitar later on or a unique instrument to master. I can help you master the Uke and have a lot of fun doing it.

Lee has a very laid back approach that really resonated with my 12 yr old daughter in learning guitar and helped gain confidence enough to sing while she played. Lee has lots of experience with different styles and shares her her knowledge beyond the basics at every lesson!

"Greg is a great instructor. He is very patient with the children and delivers information very clearly. At the same time he is very encouraging which is the great motivation for the students. My daughter has been having classes with Greg for over a month now. She went from “oh I can’t” to playing “Riptide” and “Hey, there Delilah”. She might not play them perfectly yet, but the fact that she is willing to pick up uku by herself to practice any songs she wants every day shows that it’s not forced learning to satisfy parents, it is a hobby which my child enjoys."

"I hadn't played a musical instrument since elementary school when I started Ukulele lessons with Ben. Ben started from the beginning, answered all my questions along the way, and built upon that information in each lesson. It wasn't in a didactic way, but in a way that was really customized to fit my Ukulele lesson goals. Ben's teaching style is very flexible also. I had some Ukulele lesson books I had been gifted and we worked from those. I didn't feel that I had to buy a bunch of additional equipment, books, etc.

I recommend Ben as a music teacher. He is understanding, encouraging, and inspirational. I am looking forward to continuing lessons with Ben and JC Instrumental."
