Private Ukulele Teacher

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.

About John

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.

Life-long ukulele player taught by my own musical family members. I have taught 200+ beginners, representing 15+ countries throughout the world and ranging between 9 to 89 years of age, since 2013. Teaching ukulele to beginners brings me joy because it is a physical connection to my own Hawaiian heritage that I get to share with everyone. Each curriculum will be tailored to the student according to their needs. Part of my lesson plan includes songs that the student would like to learn throughout the course

I like to cater the lessons to the student, so it all depends on what you want to get out of it!

"Perfect teacher for any level

Jared finds where you are skill wise and teaches you from there. I know some basic music theory but there are many holes in my knowledge - He is very good at figuring out exactly what I know and what I need to practice still so I feel accomplished at the end of every lesson and don't waste any time getting to know my instrument.

I highly recommend taking lessons with Jared. I'm having a blast!"

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. The best part about his teaching style is that he structures and adapts his lessons to ensure that the student is having fun learning."
