I've been teaching ukulele for 5 years and it is one of my favorite instruments to play and teach! Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play several chords and as time goes on you'll be able to play the songs that interest you most. I specialize in pop music and typically use the Alfred Ukulele Method for Kids books or the Hal Leonard Ukulele Books for older students. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Lauren was an incredible instructor in both my violin and piano lessons, encouraging a balance in her lessons of what was in the book, for improving proficiency and technical aspects, as well as including any external pieces of personal selection to maintain and increase interest and inspire creativity to drive the passion for learning and playing!
