I try to teach in a way that best fits the student's needs. I really enjoy the "learning process" and love helping students find out how they learn best. Also, I make a point to have students progress in a natural way that allows them to be making music at every stage along the way.

I’ve had my ukulele for over two years, and have done nothing with it. Decided the other day it was time, did a google search and found Alexandra on TakeLessons! I have zero music background but she’s made these lessons SOO simple and effective. I have a long ways to go, yet I leave each lesson with a feeling of accomplishment! Wasn’t expecting this to go so well, 110% satisfied. Thanks Alexander :)

"I'm three lessons deep into the ukulele and I'm really satisfied with Ryan. We've met once in person and twice online; I've had some health issues and he has been really accomodating switching this up for me. He's easy going and takes his time expaining history, theory, and taking it step by step while remaining encouraging and giving honest feedback. He wastes no time and you really get the most out of your lesson. I look forward to continuing on with Ryan. As a teacher and performer myself, I appreciate that he gets down to the business of doing the work but is just very nice as well!"
