Private Ukulele Teacher

I've been teaching acoustic guitar for 7 years (since I was a teen myself!) and ukulele for about 3. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to read and play from basic tabs, and as time goes on we can work on songs you pick yourself. I generally don't teach ukulele students to read sheet music unless they ask; this is because in the "real world" of playing musicians, ukulele players almost never use actual sheet music. Students should have and bring their own ukulele. I will work with students ages 6+, but I recommend waiting until the individual student has sufficient hand size/strength to feel comfortable reaching several chord shapes.

Oh boy, do I love the Ukulele! This instrument is FUN. I became passionate about the ukulele a few years ago.This instrument is fun. We will learn our chords, learn a lot of unique strumming patters and work on our rhythm. We will also learn how to take some classic rock and roll guitar songs and turn them into happy-go-lucky-uke tunes!
This instrument is PERFECT for beginners - adults and children!

About Rachel

I started my musical path in a Ballet Studio. I fell in love with the crackle of the vinyl record playing as I learned to listen and dance with the rhythm. I started playing the guitar when I was in elementary and took classical lessons until I was a teenager.I really enjoy the art of practice

I've been teaching ukulele for 4 years helping students develop a love for the instrument and learn more about music along the way. Ukulele is a great instrument for an introduction into stringed instruments and as a casual pastime, but when pursued seriously can be as rigorous as any other. Within the first few lessons you'll have a solid base of strumming patterns and chord changes and even a few simple songs under your belt. Moving on from there I will craft lessons to move you toward a "goal song," making sure to cater your progress to your needs while keeping a focus on good technique. I enjoy working with students of all ages and experiences and I can't wait to meet you!

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 since 2012. 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.

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!

"I have taken a lot of lessons over the years. I grew up playing piano and cello, and I’m a professional singer. I knew first hand what a phenomenal musician Nick Russo was, and I had a hunch that he would be a marvelous teacher as well.

Now that I’ve been taking ukulele lessons with Nick for the last three months, it’s clear my hunch was correct. He’s a phenomenal teacher. Patient, clear, willing to explain things in multiple ways. He’s also extremely flexible. Always willing to go in a different direction if that’s what’s needed. And, most of all, he wants his students to have fun with their instrument and he’s always looking for ways to ensure that happens.

Nick is a musician with a huge musical range. In addition to playing many instruments Nick has a broad and deep knowledge of many different musical traditions. It brings a richness to his offering as a teacher which are hard to match.

I can’t recommend Nick highly enough. A wonderful teacher and a kind, compassionate person. If you’re looking for a teacher, you can’t go wrong by choosing to work with Nick!"

One Easy Trick to Convert Guitar Chords to Ukulele Chords | TakeLessons

Are you trying to learn a song on ukulele but can only find guitar chords? I’ve played guitar all my life and have a collection of Gibson and Epiphone Les Pauls. For my birthday a few years ago, my girlfriend bought me an electric Les Paul-style ukulele. I’d never played a uke before -- ever. I had to go online to even find out how to tune the thing! Undaunted, I discovered the standard tuning is from the top string G – C – E – A. The G string is thinner than the C string, sort …
