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!

Private Ukulele Teacher

The ukulele is a creative adaptation and redesign of the machete de braga, a small stringed instrument that was introduced to Hawaii by Portuguese immigrants in August of 1879. The Hawaiian people fell in love with the sound of the instrument and named it “ukulele" because the fingers of the performer dancing around on the neck and strings as a song was played resembled jumping fleas. Ukulele means jumping fleas in the Hawaiian language.

Since the ukulele is related to a European instrument and the guitar from Spain, the relative tuning is the same. It should be tuned a perfect fourth up from a guitar, so the first string is tuned to an A, second string should be tuned to an E, third string will be a C, & the fourth string should be tuned to a G an octave up. Most ukuleles have a fourth string that is an octave above what the normal progression would be of most stringed instruments. If your G string is not tuned an octave up it’s a larger size than the average ukulele G string ...

I can help students be more familiar with ukulele techniques and compare differences between the ukulele and the traditional six string guitar.

About Holly

I have been playing piano for 15 years, and taught two students while I was still in high school. I took a break from teaching for a few years, but recently started teaching again, while finishing up college. I am introverted, but I bond well with kids and will treat them well. I also offer flute,

As I am an older adult piano student with many years of experience playing organ and digital keyboard, including publicly and for hire, I was uncertain which way to go when I decided to add piano (and ultimately jazz piano) to my repertoire. After considering a number of options (online teaching programs, books, YouTube videos, and various instructors), I decided to employ Holly's vast musical expertise. I was impressed that she had a proposed lesson plan right off the bat, and she convinced me that starting with classical music may be the way to morph my way into jazz piano. I knew as a fact that many jazz musicians had their start that way. Holly has been very patient with my learning the whole new way of playing that a piano entails (no more relying on the built-in bells and whistles of an arranger keyboard). I would recommend Holly for adult students as well as children. She knows her stuff. And if she gets mad if I don't play something right the first time, she sure doesn't show it (mainly because she DOESN'T get mad at all). But my biggest recommendation comes that she is darn passionate about what she does.
Leroy
Holly is an incredible pianist and teacher. Always patient and understanding. She always has the answer to questions I have and can explain it clearly. I would recommend Holly to anyone looking to learn piano the correct way.

Are you a beginner, intermediate or advanced ukulele player interested in learning more chords, notes, strumming patterns, finger picking styles, music theory or how to read tab? Do you just want to get better at that ukulele you've had? Or learn your favorite song for fun?

I personally adore the ukulele, especially as a starter instrument! I've been playing uke for 7 years now, and it's the perfect accompaniment whether you're on stage or in your bedroom. It's easy to travel with, too, if you have a busy life and are always on the go, ukulele is easy to learn and get good at quickly (but you obviously still need to put the practice time in!!) I write a lot of songs on the ukulele & love the unique style and sound it has.

Whether you are planning on performing with it, using it as accompaniment to someone else/yourself, or just want to learn for fun as a hobby, I can teach you all you need to know to meet your ukulele goals! If you have any questions, please message me & let's ...

Online Ukulele Teacher

I have been teaching private piano, violin, guitar, and ukulele lessons for ten years. I won competitions, hundreds of dollars, and a scholarship through the Desert Valley Music Teacher Association (DVMTA). I have written and self-published two piano books with more in the works. I have worked on a Music Theory degree at MCC and plan to transfer to ASU to finish my bachelor's. I help students find the fun in music again with many involved music games and incentive programs. I instill a love and confidence in students of composing their own music from a young age.

Carlos definitely earned a 5 star rating! Bought lessons for a friend as a gift after I watched a couple of his YouTube videos. Before and after bookong, he was communicative and flexible on scheduling. My friend just took her first lesson and could not contain her excitement! Said she learned more in 45 minutes than she had in for plus years. She plans to continue learning from him. Thanks Carlos!
Charles W.
Coming from piano, the guitar has always seemed daunting to me. Prior to my lessons with Carlos, I had tried to teach myself songs/chords without much luck. Fortunately for me, Carlos turned out to be an extremely patient, friendly and competent teacher - I immediately knew I’d be progressing quickly with him! His qualifications speak for themselves, but I can’t recommend Carlos enough.
