UKULELE is a VERSATILE and FUN instrument with the potential to play any kind of music that you like, not just tin pan alley or kids tunes. I specialize in working with beginners who have no music background but lots of enthusiasm to play.

Learn to read music notation with your ukulele, learn to sing and strum chords so you play music with others to entertain yourself and your friends and family. I encourage participation at local open mics and uke groups for the intermediate students. For more advanced students we embark on a study of complex pieces of music and focus on performance goals.

About Laura G.

I have been a teacher since 1996 and a uke teacher since 2015, teaching uke to after school groups. I am a member of Houkulele, Houston's Social Ukulele Club. I have attended Uke Teacher Training courses with Kevin Carroll in Austin. I follow and use James Hill's ukulele in the classroom curriculum and supplement for the specific music interests of my students. I am continually learning new things. I attend uke workshops, TMEA music conferences and festivals like the Kerrville Folk Festival to continually improve my skill and my teaching techniques.

Laura, is a wonderful person and a talented musician .
She worked with me to develop a realistic lesson plan that made since and set goals that were achievable. She was always available when I had questions and on time for our lessons, and accommodating when I wasn't able to make a schedule lesson time due to conflicts. Unfortunate I wasn't able to maintain my commitment and had to step away from the online format.

I highly recommend Laura!

Laura is a very thoughtful teacher and gently guides me along in my learning of ukulele. She is always growing in her own practice and finding new ways to teach. I have learned so much from her and enjoyed it at the same time!!
