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.

About Maya

- I am classically trained in piano and music theory (attended college for both from the age of 15) and have a strong emphasis on music theory and good technique in my lessons, but I also understand the importance of ear training. I practice with and encourage each student in developing relative pi

Super Knowledgable. Psyched to learn more.
Dennis
Derek is a very knowledgable instructor, easy to talk to, and I found his teaching technique is very motivating. He set realistic practice goals for the next session, which will require me to do my part, but that's the reason we show up, to learn how to play a musical instrument.
I highly recommend him.

"Now in my fourth week of ukulele lessons, I am thoroughly enjoying both learning to play the instrument and my weekly online lessons. Raymond is terrific, exceedingly likeable and encouraging. He also gives me quite a bit to practice between lessons, which keeps my hands on my instrument throughout the week. I am tremendously pleased with the decision to pursue online lessons through takelessons.com with Raymond this spring, and I expect I'll continue beyond the number of lessons I initially planned to take."

"FIRST LESSON was a great experience. Although my 12-year old son was hesitant about Ukulele lessons, he immediately felt relaxed with David. Of notable qualities...David was professional, very patient, redirected my son when he got off track, boosted his self-esteem with words of encouragement, and took the time to answer any questions my son had after the lesson was over. My son left excited and looks forward to his next lesson."
