Learning to play the Ukulele is so much fun! Young and old alike enjoy being able to play chords in just a few short lessons to favorite songs. This instrument is especially great for little ones- it's a great starter to string instruments of all types. You can find an inexpensive but good quality Ukulele at most music stores. I teach chords, rhythm and individual note reading so students enjoy themselves while learning to read music!
About Shannon B.

Music is my passion, my hobby, my career and my gift. I have been performing since age 7 and teaching for the last 25 years. I have a bachelor's and master's degree in music and love to share my knowledge and experience with all ages and aptitudes - even special needs. My approach to teaching is fun but serious, laid-back but encouraging, demanding but forgiving. I teach students how to be disciplined with their practice and how to make the most of their limited time. *** Lesson Details *** I can help you achieve your goals! For those who want a well-rounded music education, I include music theory (note and rhythm reading), technique, ear training, improvisation and performance practice in my curriculum using a variety of methods. I enjoy working with adults interested in picking up their instrument after a number of years. Perhaps you are someone interested in pursuing an ability to play a certain style - pop, jazz, hymns, oldies, classics, or certain artists. I customize our lessons to match your objectives. My students have an opportunity to perform publicly several times a year which encourages practice and also builds confidence. After a few lessons, I can provide an idea of where a student will be in 3-6 months. You can always expect to find me prepared with fun ideas for our lesson. I have a grand piano as well as several keyboards to add variety and fun to our lessons. *** Studio Equipment *** home-grand piano in living room seating for parents church- digital piano and seating for parents *** Travel Equipment *** I would bring my own violin to demonstrate but would expect students to have their own instrument. *** Specialties *** For piano, I use Faber & Faber, Alfred, Bastien and Music for Little Mozarts. I include sight reading books, rhythm workbooks, improv studies, and later scales and arpeggios. For violin I have created my own hybrid using traditional methods and Suzuki.

So far 1 lesson and Shannon made my tween feel very easy (he is a bit shy to play in front of people) and motivated. We are looking forward to more lessons!

My daughter’s first lesson with Shannon was fantastic! Shannon has such a warm personality that immediately put us all at ease. She is so patient, kind and knowledgable. She had many tips and tricks to help my daughter learn. My daughter left the lesson eager to practice what she learned, and eager to go to her next lesson. I couldn’t ask for a better outcome!
