Private Ukulele Teacher

Ukulele is the perfect instrument for young students learning their first instrument. It's incredibly easy to get off the ground and start making music right away. For that reason, it's one of my favorite instruments to teach, and it's the instrument I recommend to first-time music students, even if they eventually want to switch to other instruments.

About Ben

Hi, there! My name is Ben and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2012 and have taught students of all ages from 3 to adult. I have experience not just with teaching but also with writing, recording, and performing music in successful bands and on multiple instruments

Ben has been instructing my 2 kids (now aged 11 and 9) in-home for at least 5 years. We started off with piano for the first few years but then switched to a combination of piano and acoustic guitar (half a session dedicated to each instrument).

He is patient, kind, and highly knowledgeable. I clearly see the upward trajectory in my kids' musical capabilities. One of my kids can be difficult to deal with, especially when he is tired, but Ben would mold his approach to the lesson on the spot to keep my kid engaged (e.g., instead of continuing the lesson on the actual piano, he'd switch to a fun music-oriented game).

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.

Ben has been working with our daughter since January 2019, when she turned 6 1/2. He arrives at our home on time each week and he works with her at an age appropriate level. We appreciate that he recognizes the effort she puts into the weeks when she practices often and he gently makes her aware when she hasn't practiced enough. He always speaks with her in a kind way and with us in a collaborative manner. We all want her to enjoy her piano experience, and we are thankful to have found Ben just a few blocks away from our home.

Private Ukulele Teacher

I learned from some great musicians out west that the ukulele can be really fun and have more range of notes too when tuned GDAE as a violin would be tuned. Ever since I learned that I have loved playing the ukulele and also have fun helping others to become well versed in playing many styles of music on there. One can play rhythm, melodies, improvise, write songs, play almost any style of music on a ukulele.

About Tara

I have a Masters in Education as well as having spent many years performing, teaching in one on one and group settings both privately and at music camps and festivals. I play and teach bluegrass, old time, Irish, and swing jazz styles. I like my students to really enjoy playing music and their less

Dan is a patient and encouraging teacher. Even after taking months off I was able to pick up a song after just one lesson because he breaks everything down to your skill level. I highly recommend him for banjo or any music lessons!

Chelsea did a great job at our first lesson! She was patient and encouraging. She gave my daughter good suggestions on how she could improve and things to try in areas she was struggling. My daughter felt so much better after the lesson. We will continue to take lessons with Chelsea

We sent music to Chelsea in advance and she was able to help my son with the difficult parts of his music. The time was well spent and she explained things well. We look forward to our next lesson and working with her over the next month to help him catch up.

Online Ukulele Teacher

Welcome to the world of the ukulele! This traditional Hawaiian instrument derived from the Portuguese Machete is a favorite by many for it's simplicity and ability to accompany the musician's voice. The ukulele is also a great solo instrument for those who don't like to sing, as it can be played melodically as well. The ukulele is a great instrument to pick up if you have no prior experience in music at all! After your first lesson, you will already be strumming away and playing your first musical notes and tunes!

I will teach you how to unlock your inner musician! In lessons we will cover everything from musical rhythms, strumming, chords, finger picking, musical phrasing, and also my method to learning any piece of music quickly and easily!

Lets learn to make music together! I look forward to guiding you on your musical journey, and I cant wait to start working with you!

"Grant continues to be an excellent teacher for this beginner ukulele player. It's been years since I have practices music, and he is so patient as I try to re-learn how to read and play music. I highly recommend him as a teacher, and I look forward to learning more disciplines from him (including meditation and astrology!)"

"Jesse is our first music teacher and my 9 year old son is really enjoying his Ukulele lessons. My favorite thing about Jesse is how often he compliments my son during his 30 minute lesson. Practicing has yet to be a struggle and my son looks forward to his lesson. Jesse is able to keep my son's attention and make his lesson fun for him. In 5 lessons my son has learned to read music and several basic songs. It is easy to welcome Jesse in our home for the lesson. We highly recomend him as a teacher. My son wants me to add that when Jesse rides his motorcycle to our house for the lesson it is also super cool!"

By teaching the fundamentals of music theory, he enables you to build a strong foundation. It's challenging for me to find time to practice but music lessons from Jimmy inspires me to make time to practice and dig deeper into music theory.
