"Everyone should have and play a Uke. It's so simple to carry with you and it is one instrument you can't play and not laugh! It's so sweet and also very old--some are made of wood--some are made of armadillo's. I love them. The more the merrier. Everyone I know who is into the Uke is crackers. So get yourself a few and enjoy yourself."--George Harrison

I had a one off single lesson with Matthew, I was only in New York for a couple days and was lucky enough to get a sing writing session with him. He gave some great insight and valid techniques towards song writing. He was easy going and very friendly. Would certainly recommend.
Sami
Matt is an awesome instructor. Unlike a traditional guitar teacher, Matt understands what his students want to play, making lessons much more interesting and making practicing much easier. I've had a few lessons with Matt and have learned more in those lessons that I could have ever learned by myself. Highly recommend.
Diana
Just had my first piano lesson with Matthew today. He is a truly great artist and instructor who will teach you not just about the playing technique but about the music theory/history behind it. Would definitely recommend!

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 character attributes one would like to find in a teacher, knowledge, patience and presence! Looking forward to our next lesson. Thanks Ben!
Aena
Fantastic, patient and kind ukelele instructor. I recommend Ben without reservation.
Thanks Ben!
Kamal
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).

Online Ukulele Teacher

With the current COVID-19 virus crisis, I have been shifting all my students to online classes. Check out my pictures to see my online classroom set up, or feel free to send me a message if you have questions! :)

I structure most lessons according to the following:
- Basics of ukulele
- Understanding chords and chord charts
- Strum patterns
- Finger picking
- Songwriting (optional)

I'll teach you concepts via songs. If you have song requests, I'll definitely do my best to accommodate!

Ms. Tammy is an excellent teacher. She’s passionate about her profession and makes her lessons fun for my son. My son is 4 years old and is taking her class online. At first I thought he would be intimidated, but teacher Tammy did a great job and eased my son into it. My son has been inspired and enjoys the lessons. Its also built his confidence and esteem. He finds joy in playing for his classmates, friends, and family.
Jennifer O.
We're having fun learning with Ms. Tammy. Her energy, approach and enthusiasm are just right to encourage, yet challenge my kids. She listens and addresses any questions or concerns that I may have. I also appreciate that she modifies sheet music to meet individual specific needs and avoids the cookie-cutter approach. Thanks, Ms. Tammy!
Payton M.
When I read Tammy’s bio I was excited, however, when class began I came to a realization that her bio is inaccurate. States she works with children of all ages, that is not true. Prior to purchasing classes we’d had a conversation and had an plan for my child. Ultimately class began, what was discussed was not implemented. I would recommend a different teacher.

Lessons with Michael begin with simple chord shapes and strumming to start a students journey quickly to learning songs. Ukulele is a less-physical instrument compared to other stringed instruments and heavily prevalent in modern popular music, thus making a great instrument for young students.

Patient and flexible, moves at a pace that challenges you but doesnt push too hard which is a delicate balance!

Thank you!
Monte H.
Michael is a stickler for doing things right, but in a nice way. I feel that his mode of teaching is best, because it builds a solid foundation for further learning.
ELLIOT
After a brief intro, Mike explained where're going with his lessons. I was having some problems getting my fingers near certain fret areas he wanted me to work on, so he very kindly placed some colors tape where I'm to put my fingers. That helped a lot. Been practicing an hour per day, & I'm getting a bit better daily. I've got a long way to go, but with Mike's help I'll get there. ELLIOT

"My daughter began classes with Nick as part of her after school program with a group of elementary school kids who signed up for group Ukulele classes. When quarantine started due to COVID, we all had to switch to remote zoom classes with Nick. Teaching music remotely must be challenging but Nick never made it seem challenging. He was always so patient and age-appropriate with the kids and communicated often with the parents. After the group lessons ended, we decided to continue with 1:1 classes with Nick. He really allowed my daughter to go at her own pace but still challenge her. He does ear training as well and now my daughter can play along with many songs she likes, just by figuring out the notes on her own. Nick's follow up emails after each lesson made sure we are aware of what he worked on and any HW our daughter should work on. Our daughter has progressed so much in just a few months of starting a new instrument! Nick is really a kind and amazing teacher!"

Kamaka Vs. Martin Ukulele: Pros & Cons for Uke Students

When you enter the market to buy yourself a new (or used) ukulele there are many factors to take into account: size of the uke, the type of woods used, the level of craftsmanship, and most importantly the price you’ll pay to get your hands on it. In doing your research, the most important thing to start off with is your price cap. Are you looking for the cheapest uke you can find, which would be anywhere from $20-40? Is it the next level up, around $100-200? Or is it the tier where the inst …
