My background as a Kindergarten teacher, and classically trained pianist with the Toronto Conservatory of Music, qualifies me to teach students of all ages, especially ages 4 through 10. I use various piano methods - Faber, Bastien, Alfred to name a few - based on the personality, interest and ability of the student.

I am the director of the Lake Worth Ukulele Ensemble and provide private ukulele lessons to beginner and intermediate levels.

Many references are available upon request.

Barbara Weiss is a wonderful teacher. Each session Barbara is prepared to challenge me and make me a better ukulele player. She brings joy to learning. Barbara has the ability to make music theory understandable. I love our time together!

I had been playing the uke for a few years before I started working with Barbara. I was a "chord memorizer" who lacked theory. Barbara is patient, listens, is extremely knowledgeable and explains and demonstrates in a way that even I can understand. She has made a huge difference in my playing ability and in my understanding of music.

Barbara has worked with our daughter since she was five. She did a wonderful job in building my daughter's music knowledge and skill with playing the piano.
I appreciate that she took extra time to work with our younger daughter as well. Barbara put together some wonderful recitals for the kids she taught and it was always enjoyable and light hearted.
Far from the lengthy and, frankly, boring recitals that I have been subjected, I looked forward to the recitals that Barbara planned.

Barb is the BEST music teacher that I have had the privilege to have studied under. In addition to being very knowledgeable, she is also patient and kind. Her easy-going, friendly approach completely washes away any uncertainty or fear at your first meeting. She is able to express complex musical concepts is simple, easy-to-understand chunks, giving you a satisfying sense of accomplishment. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Both of our sons took piano lessons from Ms. Barbara for years. She makes the piano interesting and fun, while also conveying the importance of practice and discipline. She brings not only many years of knowledge of music and teaching experience, but an energetic temperament and ability to work with young people across different ages and skill levels. Highly recommended!
