Ukulele has become more and more popular with shows like The Voice and Americas Got Talent. I'm on the cutting edge and am now teaching ukulele too. Ukulele is great for beginners because it has only 4 strings. Highly Recommended because I can get students good at this instrument pretty quickly.

I have some experience with WordPress but Matthew helped fill in some of the gaps for me. He is an easy going person with a friendly no pressure approach to teaching. His recommendations for me to consider for my site were on point and very helpful. His knowledge of using the proper keywords plus adding call to action buttons on my site were extremely helpful, I now feel I have the right tools in making my site stand out.
He event spent some time researching my issues before we had our first meeting. I look forward to working more with Matthew.

A great instrument to play! And LOTS of fun. You can be up and playing basic ukulele in a very short time, and as you progress, we will add all the rhythmic strums that make the ukulele come alive. The ukulele can cover almost every style of music there is...from traditional Hawaiian music to rock!... and everything in between. Let me show you how to express your inner musician with the ukulele. You will have a blast!

I teach Ukulele in a way that allows the student to cross over easily to the guitar. This can be especially helpful if the student is too young to start guitar but still want to pick up an instrument. Ukulele is a great way to prepare for guitar.

You know you want to. Get that ukulele you've been daydreaming about. Then let me teach you how to jam on it. The uke is an ideal instrument for beginners of all ages. It's size makes it easy to manage, and with only four strings, it is simplicity itself. In fact, I guarantee you will be able to play a song after only one lesson.

I play ukulele in a gypsy jazz band, and it is amazing how well that little instrument holds its own, and how much happier and brighter it makes any song it's added to. So go ahead! Stop dreaming and start playing. You'll be glad you did.

Wonderful teacher, will listen and work with you 'till you're comfortable vocally in whatever project you're working on. I have been taking lessons from her for near a year now (online and off) and I couldn't recommend her enough to anyone needing/wanting training.

As a side note, she is also quite hilarious, a fantastic sense of humor is instilled in this woman.

Out of each and every music teacher I have had, Abe was always my favorite. It was an absolute pleasure to be taught by Abe. Not only does he excel at playing and teaching music theory, he also has an understanding of how to take a student to the next level. Abe is a true master of his craft.
