Beginner
I'm not currently taking beginner students. Please refer to my studio partner Melissa:

Intermediate
Learn about common variations of the tonalities you already know and start to venture into more complex rhythm ideas like polyrhythms. Also start to build the chops to learn parts more accurately when learning songs.

Advanced
Expand into more complex polyrhythms as well as asymmetrical meters. Also expand harmony and melody to include modes and chromaticism. Push your skills through original creations or original arrangements of existing material.

She is teaching my daughter proper breathing techniques while singing. She's great with my child.
John R.
Just finished my very first lesson with Cosima. I already learned so much. She really broke down that art of singing and made it very clear how the voice works. Then we did exercises afterwards which helped me know what I need to work on. Definitely need to check her out. She’s great!(:
Malvina S.
I had Cosima for a few months and I saw a change in my voice. Not only did she help me improve my voice but she was able to explain it in a way that I could understand the fundamentals of how singing happened. I had a song that I wanted to sing for my sisters wedding and if she didn't help I probably wouldn't have sang. I would like to say thank you to Cosima for helping me understand singing/vocal world. I was so new to it even though I have been singing from young age. She was able to help find my struggle in singing and we worked at it as much as possible to improve it. My chest voice and bridges definitely got better then what they were when I first started taking lessons with her. I have learned a lot and I have seen a difference in my voice. I'm really happy and blessed that I was able to have Cosima as my teacher. I greatly appreciate her teaching me. I recommend her as a great singing teacher.

I have played the ukulele for several years, and it is still one of my favorite instruments to listen to. It's a wonderful tool for learning basic music concepts and is pretty easy to pick up. I love teaching pop music adaptation and intricate picking techniques on this instrument.

About Jordan

13 years ago, I picked up a guitar and began my life-long pursuit of music. This pursuit has led me in a wide variety of directions. Today, I am a worship leader for Fellowship of The Parks, an on-staff music-producer and session musician at Drive35 Productions, and a passionate instructor. I h

Jordan is fantastic! We have been so pleased. Since starting with Jordan our son is loving piano again.
Steven
Jordan is a nice guy, my son enjoys the lessons. So far seems like a good experience.
Julio
After many years of contemplating learning an instrument and making excuses like a busy schedule, I finally made the commitment. I started the first few weeks with online videos and made a little progress. I found Jordan through this sight. I was hoping to find someone who would help guide me on a steady path to improvement and growth. Jordan has been a perfect fit for me. He's patient (I'm not). He is encouraging (I'm pretty hard on myself). I am slowly getting better and wanting to stick with it. I think it's because he's clear and methodical in his teaching and he keeps you enthused with music that you like. While I have a long way to go, I practice every day and look forward to my weekly lessons with Jordan. I'm learning the guitar for my self and over the past three month Jordan has helped me stay engaged and excited about playing the guitar. I highly recommend Jordan and will continue to learn from him.

Online Ukulele Teacher

UKULELE is a VERSATILE and FUN instrument with the potential to play any kind of music that you like, not just tin pan alley or kids tunes. I specialize in working with beginners who have no music background but lots of enthusiasm to play.

Learn to read music notation with your ukulele, learn to sing and strum chords so you play music with others to entertain yourself and your friends and family. I encourage participation at local open mics and uke groups for the intermediate students. For more advanced students we embark on a study of complex pieces of music and focus on performance goals.

About Laura

I have been a teacher since 1996 and a uke teacher since 2015, teaching uke to after school groups. I am a member of Houkulele, Houston's Social Ukulele Club. I have attended Uke Teacher Training courses with Kevin Carroll in Austin. I follow and use James Hill's ukulele in the classroom curriculu

The ukulele is the #1 instrument I recommend for beginners, though I also use it on professional recordings. It's a versatile instrument that provided an excellent gateway to connecting with other musicians.

When I teach ukuklele, I of course focus on the fundamentals of technique that make it easy to play well, but I also work from the goals of the students and help them develop a plan to connect to to other people or an experience.

About Jonathan

I studied music therapy and music theory at Temple University from '06-'10. Learned a lot. Then again, I learned even more teaching at a school for kids with learning disabilities and working as a traveling street performer.
