Joel is clearly very passionate and well versed in the language and study of music, providing a solid foundation for anyone wanting to learn the dynamics of music and performance.

Beginner to advanced.
Ukulele is a wonderful instrument. It's very easy to learn, portable, and it makes people smile. The ukulele has enjoyed a tremendous return to popularity over the last few years.
Ukulele lessons are mostly focused on learning chords. It doesn't take long at all to start learning songs. For those more ambitious players, there are plenty of more advanced techniques, such as fingerstyle.
