Specialized in soprano and baritone ukulele! All ages welcome. I have experience teaching very young children up to adults. Learning the basics doesn't have to be difficult or boring. You'll learn note reading, sight reading, technique, and more. From my own experience, it's easier to learn songs you love. I will also teach you the basics of recording your own music and learning how to harmonize with your instrument and voice! You will also have the option to record HD videos while you progress to see how much you've learned over time. I look forward to working with you or your child!

About Jessica

I am a local small musician who does soprano and baritone ukulele cover videos. I record my own songs and post them online, and help others do the same! I learned guitar and viola at a young age and then taught myself how to play the soprano and baritone ukulele. I have been taught by amazing teach

Jess helped my 5 year old not only learn ukulele but she also gave my child confidence in her abilities to learn other instruments and play for our family. She's come out of her shell a lot since learning and I couldn't be more grateful!

About Jason

I've always been attracted to music since I was a little kid. However, I started formally taking trumpet lessons around the age of 10. I would go on to be in a plethora of concert and marching bands all throughout grade school. When I was 14, I acquired my first electric guitar. I immediately fell

I’m a multi-instrumentalist and teacher specializing in electric and acoustic guitar, and artist development. I spent the early ‘80’s as major- label recording artist, and founded the College Radio- dominating band 4 out of 5 Doctors. My major-venue touring/performing credits include tours with The Clash, The Cars, Hall & Oates, Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow, Pat Travers, UFO, even Screamin' Jay Hawkins, to name a few.

I spent the last three years teaching guitar, bass, and band, at my local music academy. During that time, I was fortunate enough to bring in major-name, platinum-selling artists/producers to mentor my younger students, whom they recognized as exceptional.

Application of my musical skills were honed by major record producers, including Jeff Glixman (Kansas, Black Sabbath, KISS) Alan Winstanley (Bush, Elvis Costello, Morrissey), Bil VornDick (Allison Krauss, Bob Dylan, Ricky Skaggs).

Even if you've never touched Ableton before, I will get you creating right away :) As a self-produced synth-pop artist under the moniker mini bear, I have experience teaching at both beginner and advanced levels. Having taught one-on-one in various environments, including at Apple, I have the ability to translate seemingly difficult concepts into relatable information. I have a strong background in music theory, songwriting, and synthesis, and I will show you how you can best use Ableton as a creative tool to reach your artistic potential.

As a vocalist, synth-player, composer, and producer, I use my knowledge and experience in technology based professions to explore the relationship between music and tech. As a “synth-enthusiast” who uses analog synths in sound design , I have cultivated a vivid musical aesthetic under the mon

Lauren is the best. I had taken a few online tutorials in Ableton, but it wasn’t until I had help putting all the pieces together in person that it started to click.

She is friendly, patient and she has an incredible understanding of Ableton. Highly recommended and grateful for her lessons.

Lauren's expertise and creativity really shines through during the lessons!! It's the perfect mix of a thorough, methodical lesson but also fun and extremely engaging, with room for our individual visions and artistry to shine through on Ableton. I can't recommend her enough, She's the best out there!!!

Hear From TakeLessons Students

Over the past 12 years, we've given over 3,000,000 lessons to happy customers around the world.

"We moved to Mt. Vernon area less than a year ago, and we needed a piano instructor for our three children who was affordable, but both my husband and I are from musical backgrounds, which makes finding a teacher a difficult process, as we aren't interested in taking just anyone who happens to have a degree in music. Christine is a rare find. She teaches in what I would describe as an immersion style that keeps the lessons steeped with concepts from theory to technique to artistry. She surrounds the children (mine ages 5, 9, and 11) with explanation, demonstration, analogy, and encourages them to learn at their own pace. "Do you understand?" is her gentle motto, probing for areas where the children need reinforcement. When they admit they aren't getting something, she will circle back to explanation from many different angles, illustrating a deeply empathetic reading of individual learning styles. My 5 year old began lessons 3 months ago and is already reading music. She listens to the children and asks thoughtful questions about their personalities. Christine is exacting in the best way an invested parent could hope for. Masterfully, she challenges the children to perfect themselves as she allows the time for such training and evolution to take place. I have been so pleased and excited over the children's experience, that I am seriously considering taking voice lessons with her, myself. I could not more highly recommend a piano instructor."

"Greg is a fantastic instructor! He takes the time to listen to the student, and is ready to guild the instruction in ways that will be useful to the learner. I have taken lessons with Greg in person as well as online. Greg is capable of teaching anything from learning songs to intense music theory. Give the online sessions a try, you won't be disappointed!"

I take music theory lessons with Loretta. I have taken music theory before with 3 other teachers . None of them make it as simple as she does. She explains it in a way that I can understand. I love her and will recommend her to anyone that wants to learn music in general. She is amazing. Can't wait to learn more from this brilliant, professional, musician!"

Also,I get the benefit of enjoying beautiful music."
