The Ukulele is such a fun instrument to play. It's a small instrument with a big sound. There is actually 4 different sizes you can choose from: Soprano, Concert, Tenor, and Baritone. The first 3 have the same string arrangement which is
G, C, E, A, and the Baritone is D, G, B, E, which is the same tuning as the first 4 strings on a guitar. Soprano is the smallest and the Baritone is the largest. If you want the true Hawaiian sound you need the Soprano. If you have really big hands or thick fingers you might want to go with the Concert or Tenor size so it will be easier to play.

They are very affordable instruments. The one I have is a Fender U Uke it was around 109.00. It's easier then guitar because you don't have to press down as hard on the strings.

Some of my favorite Ukulele players and bands that incorporate it are Jack Johnson, Brian May from Queen, Beach Boys, Elvis, Israel Iz, and many more.

I teach beginner to intermediate level for single and group lessons.

About Christian

Music is my passion. I've been playing music since I was a child but didn't get serious with it until I was 14, that's when I got my first electric guitar. So, from then on I've been playing and studying music for over 16 years. I play and teach guitar, piano, drums, and bass guitar. Aside from tak

Christian was very careful as I knew nothing about music. He explained the guitar’s basic function in language that I can understand. I am more enthusiastic about playing than I thought possible.
Braylon C.
A great instructor. Very patient with my son who has never touched a piano before. Very knowledgeable about all types of music and different instruments. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for lessons.
Emmett S.
My son Emmett is always excited to spend time with Christian! Each lesson is well organized and they cover a lot of material focusing both on skills and fun items. Technology part of things can be challenging but Christian each weeks puts the time in to make the experience better for all of us. We are having a wonderful time and learning a lot.

Outstanding vocal instruction from Brian. He has an abundance of vocal experience and exercises that really helped me approach singing and technique in a new way. Brian is a great instructor for vocal instruction of all levels, beginner to advanced! Would highly recommend!!!
Serena
My teenage son is enjoying his lessons. Brian is a very knowledgeable teacher and obviously wants his students to enjoy playing (chooses songs that interest them). He also gives a good amount of material for my son to learn throughout the week. Fun to hear him practicing!

Online Ukulele Teacher

Inspiring students to work toward their goals in each music lesson is my passion! I've been playing ukulele for years now and even play in a local band. Ukuleles have a mellow, happy sound that we can start learning songs on from the first lesson.

I specialize in helping beginning ukulele students have a firm foundation in theory, technique, sight-reading, and artistry through fun and engaging lessons. We will also learn about stage fright, better, more effective practice, and more.

I'm a fun-loving teacher who has taught music in schools for 7 years and people of all ages in my private piano, voice and ukulele studio for 8+ years. When you take ukulele lessons from me, you can expect great teaching practices, as well as a teacher who cares about you and your progress toward your specific goals.

About Shannalee

Shannalee has a wide variety of musical and teaching experience which she thoroughly enjoys sharing with her students. It's amazing how she can help develop musical abilities in so many creative and fun ways. By tailoring her lessons according to the specific needs of each student, it is apparent that she cares deeply about nurturing their music development. I highly recommend Shannalee to be your music teacher!
Jerry
I know Shannalee's work because she was the music teacher at the school I teach at. We were sad to see her go as her husband's career plans affected her decision to stay at the school. She is a pure professional. And her patience and skill with kids made me jealous. She planned and carried out major musical events for the school. She was so nice to everyone. I never saw or heard anything negative from her. She's a great person, responsible, and has tons of ideas that keep kids interested. You can't go wrong. I highly recommend her.
Daniel D. Comstock, DMA
I have had the pleasure of knowing Shannalee and her family for over 10 years. I have provided Shannalee with vocal instruction and have observed her teaching. She is excellent at both performing and teaching! Beyond that, Shannalee is not only honest and kind, she is genuine from the inside out. I enthusiastically recommend her to you!

"My son is a BEGINNER beginner. Rodrigo is a very nice guy and seems to know his stuff very well. I would give him 5 stars but I don't think he realized that my son needed the basic, basic 1st lesson (i.e. how to hold the instrument). We've only attended one session so this is fully based on that one lesson. I'm sure he'll adjust his teaching from here on out."
