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

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).
Lauren
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.

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!

Brian is a wonderful teacher, our son has been learning and enjoying the classes. Would definitely recommend Brian.

Beginner to intermediate

I can teach you 4 or 5 very effective and versatile strums and how you can utilize them to play the songs in any style you'd like to play. Depending on what you'd like to learn and whether or not you'd like learn to read music, we can work with or without an instruction book/accompanying CD (I have carefully chosen one I feel is practical, fun and user-friendly). Or I can just work out songs for you to play, show you the chords and give you suggestions on how to put it all together. I also offer instruction on how to go about writing songs on the ukulele.

"Teresa is great. She is very patient and very good at carrying on conversations with little ones. My 6 yo daughter’s been going to her home for weekly Ukulele lessons for about 2 months now, and my daughter adores her. Teresa is always willing to be flexible with switching lesson time to fit my ever changing schedule.

Highly recommended."

"We are 2 beginners taking the class together. We have taken 3 lessons. Rich is teaching us finger strengthening exercises, chords and notes which we can use to play songs, and encouraging us to find melodies using just the strings. The lesson flies by and already we can see our improvement. Last summer I tried to teach myself using YouTube and I have learned so much more in 3 weeks than I learned all summer. He is upbeat and positive. I would recommend him as a ukulele teacher."

"I've tried using on line videos and ukulele lesson books to learn to play the ukulele. But I couldn't seem to get past a certain level. I signed up for lessons with Athena and I understand a LOT more about the composition, and how to bring it all together in my playing. She's great at understanding my "why" questions, and is very patient as I learn each new thing. At the end of our lesson she gives me a practice plan so I know what to work on for the week to improve. It's made a big difference. I appreciate how quickly Athena understands what's confusing me about something new, and how quickly she explains it in a logical, clear way. I'm enjoying my lessons, and Athena has been encouraging at each step of the way. If you want to learn a new instrument, or improve your skill, Athena is a great instructor to work with!"
