Ukulele can be a great first instrument for young music lovers! Perfect for little hands, the ukulele gives students the opportunity to practice playing a string instrument! Kids will be learning chords from their first lesson and may be surprised to find out how many popular songs can be played on a ukulele! I am a laid back and fun teacher and kids can learn in a low-pressure environment with lots of encouragement and support from me! *Group lessons available by request*

About Stephanie A.

I am a singer/songwriter with more than 25 years personal experience. I wrote my first song when I was 12 years old and was singing before I could talk. I have been playing the guitar since I was 15 years old. I studied Fine and Performing Arts at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts and was featured on a few albums showcasing local musicians.
I home schooled my children for a number of years and taught a guitar class at our local home school co-op in years past.

Starting with the COVID-19 pandemic and looking at the impact of school closures on children, I decided to begin teaching online to help fill gaps in students learning and continue to provide educational and fun experiences to children now learning remotely.

As a guitar and ukulele teacher, I focus on students gaining confidence on the instrument and help them to begin playing chords from their first lesson. I teach the theoretical parts of the instrument in the context of playing and strive to have a welcoming, relaxed, and fun teaching environment. I would love to help your student develop and improve their musical skills.

Stephanie is wonderful! She is engaging, encouraging, enthusiastic and fun! She is also patient and really takes the time to assess her students and give explicit direction to move them forward. My daughter has come a long way in just 4 lessons! Great choice!!

I've known Stephanie for ages. We were musicians in highschool together, and here...20 years later, she's STILL able to find ways for me to improve, both technically and artistically!
