Lesson Details

Ukulele

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I teach with a person-centered approach. What are your goals as a musician? What genres and styles are you looking to cultivate mastery in? Are you seeking performance opportunities? I have 2 years of experience teaching children and adolescents basic technique, repertoire expansion, and artist development. I seek to cultivate strong bonds between a person and their expression, empowering people to thrive technically as well as artistically. I have experience teaching beginner/intermediate ukulele technique, pop, rock, country, folk, and songwriting for ukulele.

Teaching since:
2011

Passionate, creative, hard-working musician with experience in music therapy, music education, and early childhood music and movement in the foothills of Colorado. I facilitate spaces in which the healing power of music can shape and transform student's lives, providing a means for creative, emotional, and social expression. With over 10 years of performance experience and a degree from Berklee College of Music, I bring a dedication to mastery and artistic development to all of my students. Using a person-centered approach, I am flexible in my teaching style and aim to support the arising needs of students. I have experience teaching flute, ukulele, guitar, piano, voice, and drums, with people ranging from 4-80 years of age. Students can expect to work on skills that support a well rounded musical lifestyle, including practice strategy, technique, tone development, joyous playing, scales, harmony, performance coaching, composition/songwriting, repertoire, improvisation, social media outreach, band coaching/arranging, and artist development. I aim to meet the ongoing needs of students. I look forward to meeting you!

My daughter was in need of a vocal coach that could help with specific goals. Carley was able to work on challenging skills with my daughter and keep it enjoyable. I have seen a significant improvement over a short period of time. She simply sounds amazing, and is more confident over all. My daughter was always comfortable and excited to learn from her.
