Private Ukulele Teacher

For students who have played an instrument prior to our lessons, I try and shape a curriculum entirely based upon the specific goals of the student, and I rarely use text books although I use a lot of exercises and educational material when appropriate.  I feel learning to play and transcribe songs and solos to increase a students self reliance and confidence is my most important job.  

Most students come to me looking for structure so I try and provide a clear path to their goals. For students with no prior musical experience I use text books and exercises to strengthen their technique, expose them to musical ideas, and give them a foundation for basic theory.  After that is accomplished I move into a curriculum that is more personal to their specific goals.

Great first lesson.
Raahil J.
He pays attention to detail, is super organized with a definite plan and knows how to keep a student's interest. He is balanced and very realistic in his approach. He is talented and meets the student where he is. He is even transcribing a Bollywood song for my son and my son is loving it! He is flexible... We are so happy to have found him.

Private Ukulele Teacher

Ukulele is an instrument I've come to play a lot and really appreciate in recent years, and I love to teach it! I've got you covered for CLASSIC Ukulele songs as well other familiar non-Uke recordings for a new twist. Chord sequences, scales, strum and pick-patterns.. just like all my lessons we'll cover music's essentials.

About James

*PLEASE NOTE: I don't travel to Bellevue, Mercer Island or anywhere that requires me to drive over I-90 or the 520 bridge. Sorry! 3 miles is my maximum distance of travel, and please take note of the time slot I have open (usually just a few). I've been exploring music since age 13 when I start

Cory
James was awesome! I took a series of 10 at home lessons that really boosted my bass playing. He used a combination of learning with music that I could play along to as well as practice chord tones and other more classical learning tools. I would recommend him to anyone that wanted to build their skills.

Thanks James!
Alton
James was a delight, and our son was pleased with his first lesson.

Sincerely anticipating more!
Tim/Teresa G.
Engaging, patient and very talented. Wonderful with our teenage son.

Beginner to intermediate

I can teach you 4 or 5 very effective and versatile strums and how you can utilize them to play the songs in any style you'd like to play. Depending on what you'd like to learn and whether or not you'd like learn to read music, we can work with or without an instruction book/accompanying CD (I have carefully chosen one I feel is practical, fun and user-friendly). Or I can just work out songs for you to play, show you the chords and give you suggestions on how to put it all together. I also offer instruction on how to go about writing songs on the ukulele.

About Jeff

Jeff is a seasoned instructor in guitar, songwriting, music performance and music business. He also offers lessons in public speaking, voice-over performance and ukulele. He welcomes students of all ages and experience and has successfully and happily taught beginners to pro-level musicians and r

Online Ukulele Teacher

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 nearly 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

Beginning ukulele students will be taught the basics in a fun but productive way. I will teach a strong foundation so a student can move forward with confidence. Lessons would be individualized to focus on areas that need the most guidance.

You will learn the basics about rhythm, harmony, and melody and how they apply to ukulele. You will become fluent in the 12 basic keys to a degree where you can play simple songs in any of them.

Melissa is patient, explains the concepts very well, she is hands on and makes the lessons very entertaining and dynamic. The way she selects the material for her students she finds the right balance between effective learning, fun and interesting. We are very fortunate to have her as a piano teacher.
Sevval N.
She was so kind and helpful toward my kids for the fist day.
Youjia S.
My daughter struggled to stay focused for the whole one hour. It would be better to have video conference option so she can see the teacher.

"Great teacher

I wasn't sure how taking lessons via Skype would work, not having that in person interaction, but it's been really great. Phil is a really good teacher and has an immense amount of patience and encouragement. Even when I haven't had any time to practice and I'm struggling with the lesson, he insists that I'm doing great and boosts my confidence. This is the first instrument I've ever played and I've appreciated the bits of music history he's thrown in to help me connect things and the lessons are always so much fun too."
