Private Ukulele Teacher

David enjoys teaching ukulele to beginner and intermediate students. Whether you are just starting out or you've been playing for a while, he is happy to teach you! Over all, he is fairly laid back, as long as you practice. He teaches chord formations and strum patterns, along with learning specific songs the student would like to learn.

David is also very pro music theory. He usually incorporates music theory into the curriculum in conjunction with the material already being discussed. He is also very knowledgeable about composition/songwriting, and if the student is interested in learning more about this area, he is happy to share what he knows!

Barbara is an excellent teacher. She is very encouraging and positive. She makes the process fun by focusing on learning songs and allowing the student to pick the songs the student wants to learn. We focus on the basics--playing the right chords, singing on key and choosing a strumming pattern that fits the song. In the several months we have been working together I have found that I have improved dramatically in all three areas. Previously, on my own I had a great deal of trouble making progress. In addition to learning to play the guitar she has helped me tremendously with singing, which I never thought I could do at all. I have really enjoyed the experience.

Brian is the man! I've been casually learning how to play guitar on my own for the last few years, but I have very little actual music theory knowledge and I've definitely picked up some not-so-good habits along the way. Brian has been awesome at filling in the gaps and getting my fundamentals straightened out - I've learned more in just a few lessons with him than I have in years of "noodling".

Off to a great start - thanks, Brian.

Ukulele is an interesting instrument with a lot of similar characteristics to guitar. I have been playing ukulele for the past year now and it's substantially easier to play and faster to learn then guitar, but you can develop skills that will transfer over to the guitar.

About Jeremie

I'm a self taught guitarist who has been playing for 20 years. I have played professionally in numerous bands and ensembles ranging from jazz to folk to rock, and I've been writing music for the same length of time. I currently perform with one of my students from TakeLessons named Mackenzie O'Brie

"Joel is an amazing instructor. I have had music instructors that get frustrated and roll their eyes or scoff. Not once have I gotten that from Joel. He breaks it down to where it is completely understandable and willing to work at your speed. I especially like that he isn't hung up on boring songs he pushes for what the student is interested in. Makes learning so much more fun. I thought trying to learn an instrument at 27 would make me feel dumb but Joel doesnt create that kind of environment. Only good vibes. Cant say enough good things about Joel."

"TRY HIM, YOU'LL LIKE HIM!!!

As a blind retired executive, with a passion for good music, I decided to try to emulate Warren Buffet and his passion for the ukulele. Steve has been extremely patient with my difficulty finding the right strings with the right fingers, but nevertheless with a short training period under my belt, we feel I am making great progress. Not only is Steve patient, but he is music smart, interesting, and so accomplished with the equipment. I highly recommend him as a great instructor for another candidate with the desire to play!"

"Jesse is an amazing teacher with my 12 y/o daughter. He's kind, patient and is in tune to what she likes. He communicates well with her and she very much looks forward to her lessons with him. In just a short time (maybe 6 lessons), she's learned so much and plays many songs already and has had almost no exposure to any instrument to this point. Plus, you can't help but smile when there's a Ukulele being played in the house! Thank you Jesse for sharing your gift and passion of music to others."
