Inspiring students to work toward their goals in each music lesson is my passion! I've been playing ukulele for years now and even play in a local band. Ukuleles have a mellow, happy sound that we can start learning songs on from the first lesson.

I specialize in helping beginning ukulele students have a firm foundation in theory, technique, sight-reading, and artistry through fun and engaging lessons. We will also learn about stage fright, better, more effective practice, and more.

I'm a fun-loving teacher who has taught music in schools for 7 years and people of all ages in my private piano, voice and ukulele studio since 2012. When you take ukulele lessons from me, you can expect great teaching practices, as well as a teacher who cares about you and your progress toward your specific goals.

About Shannalee B.

Performing and practicing the art of music making has been my passion since I was very young. When I was about 5, I started performing with my mom around our community and loved it! I'm classically trained and come from a musical family. I felt drawn to get my Bachelors of Music Education (K-12 with a vocal emphasis). I firmly believe that music learning can be done by ANYONE who is wanting to learn at ANY age!

Over the past 7 years of teaching music to children in schools across two states, I have always loved meeting new students and encouraging them on their musical journey. I am passionate about teaching students of all ages. I also have experience teaching students with special needs throughout the years.

I specialize in teaching new students to have wonderful practice habits, a correct foundation of vocal and/or playing techniques, and healthy performance skills. I like to use Piano Adventure and WunderKeys books for piano learning to work on technique, theory, improvisation, note reading, and artistry. In vocal lessons, you can expect to have repertoire chosen that meets your musical goals singing in classical, musical, pop, and jazz styles. We work each week to meet your specific goals and I plan each individual lesson accordingly.

Having an attitude of learning is important to me and I'm constantly looking for new ways to improve my teaching and better my own musicianship through classes and workshops. I'm looking forward to talking with you about your musical goals!

Shannalee has a wide variety of musical and teaching experience which she thoroughly enjoys sharing with her students. It's amazing how she can help develop musical abilities in so many creative and fun ways. By tailoring her lessons according to the specific needs of each student, it is apparent that she cares deeply about nurturing their music development. I highly recommend Shannalee to be your music teacher!

I know Shannalee's work because she was the music teacher at the school I teach at. We were sad to see her go as her husband's career plans affected her decision to stay at the school. She is a pure professional. And her patience and skill with kids made me jealous. She planned and carried out major musical events for the school. She was so nice to everyone. I never saw or heard anything negative from her. She's a great person, responsible, and has tons of ideas that keep kids interested. You can't go wrong. I highly recommend her.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Shannalee and her family for over 10 years. I have provided Shannalee with vocal instruction and have observed her teaching. She is excellent at both performing and teaching! Beyond that, Shannalee is not only honest and kind, she is genuine from the inside out. I enthusiastically recommend her to you!

Shannalee is a fantastic teacher, advisor and mentor. She has helped me work out some songs and develop the cords to match. She’s very patient and understanding. Her knowledge of music is profound and she is a pure delight to learn from. I will for sure continue to seek her guidance and teachings as I attempt to grow my own musical interests.
