Love to teach beginners and intermediate students.
I teach all uke students how to read, theory, songs and how to understand playing the instrument solo or in a group setting.
Uke is capable of doing anything, all one has to do is apply oneself and music can come flowing out of the instrument.

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.

"John is a very good teacher. He figured out my learning ability and interest level quickly in the first lesson, and covers the material as much as I can handle In short 30 minute lessons. I leave each lesson with enough work to go over and practice in the coming week. He makes Ukulele learning fun and easy."

"As both a music teacher AND a person, Teresa is a real gem! She's been teaching my daughter ukulele for about 9 months now, and the amount of progress we've witnessed is amazing! I'm a musician myself, and have known quite a few music teachers through the years, and I know firsthand how truly difficult it is to find a good one, and Teresa is a GREAT one. In addition to that, she's such a warm, kind, intuitive person that's she's just a joy to be around, in general. I can't recommend her highly enough!"

"Jesse is great! I'm an old lady with no musical ability, yet he has the talent and patience to teach me ukulele!!! He is flexible with the lessons, concentrating on whatever is giving me issues that week. I love that he customizes your musical goals: I will never be Jake Shimabukuro, but I will be able to play along the next time someone says "California Dreamin' in G". I definitely recommend Jess to all the old ladies that want to learn an instrument - and everyone else! Next stop....bass guitar!"

"It's only my first lesson, but it did exactly what I'd hoped. I'm excited about learning to play the ukulele, and I love Jeremy's approach in using songs that I am familiar with. Previously, I tried to teach myself from a manual of songs that didn't have meaning to me. Jeremy is clearly a seasoned, talented musician."

"Had my first lesson with Matthew last night. He was great - quickly figured out my skill level, and came up with some songs that fit me well. They were easy enough that I can learn them, but with some challenging parts to make it fun. The pace of the lesson was great; we mixed teaching with playing, and he even threw in some intro music theory tidbits to help me understand better what I was doing. I left motivated to practice, and I'm looking forward to my next lesson."

"Elizabeth is a great teacher. I am very impressed with how she continues to move my child forward with learning to play without my daughter really even knowing it. She is very patient with her and also goes with the flow. If my daughter wants to spontaneously create a new song Elizabeth will go with it and even create a chart so they can play it properly. Very much looking forward to continuing more lessons with Elizabeth and watching my daughter grow with her."

My 6 yo daughter’s been going to her home for weekly Ukulele lessons for about 2 months now, and my daughter adores her.

Highly recommended."

Complete Guide to Mastering the D, D7, and Dm Ukulele Chords

The sweet tone of the ukulele really comes out when the right chords are played. There is a wide range of moods the uke can produce — from upbeat grooves to sentimental slow jams — which depends heavily on the type of chords that are used. The major, minor, and dominant chords all have distinctive sounds that play a critical role in the songs we know and love. To understand the unique quality of each essential chord type, it’s helpful to practice chord variations that are based on the s …
