Jake was extremely friendly and enthusiastic during our lesson! He was very flexible and willing to teach depending on what I was interested in, and skilled enough to give immediate examples of how to apply those skills. I would highly recommend him for Ableton lessons!

My daughters first online lessons and a wonderful experience! Ruben is very engaging, friendly and knowledgeable. He is easy to contact, accommodating and quick to respond to questions. Would highly recommend!
Kevin and Ella M.
My 9-year-old daughter and 11-year-old son have been taking uke lessons for 3 weeks now and they really enjoy Ruben's style of teaching; so do we. He provides a great combination of making it fun while also really teaching them the foundations of music. They are already reading and writing some music and they enjoy doing their music homework. Most important, they are having fun at the lessons and while practicing at home.

Private Ukulele Teacher

I have been teaching the ukulele for over 10 years to students of all ages, backgrounds, and experience levels. The primary focus is learning chords, techniques, and strumming patterns that we can apply to various popular songs. We will also explore reading sheet music, reading tablature, and understanding music theory. Materials used for this class include various method books, songbooks, and customized lesson plans.

About Patrick

Patrick is a multi-instrumentalist whose teaching method empowers students to discover their own artistry through the vocabulary of theory, style, and musicianship. Shortly before beginning school at Berklee College of Music in Boston in 2002, Patrick began teaching private guitar lessons in his hom

I was impressed with the one on one lessons. I got those lessons from Patrick after I took a group class with him. I learned a lot in that short lesson. A one on one was even better. He used Zoom to make the chord charts and everything available to me. I learned new major and minor chords in the first lesson. He understood my goals and was able to adapt to them and plan future lessons in an efficient way. I recommend lessons from him.

Private Ukulele Teacher

Ukulele is the perfect instrument for young students learning their first instrument. It's incredibly easy to get off the ground and start making music right away. For that reason, it's one of my favorite instruments to teach, and it's the instrument I recommend to first-time music students, even if they eventually want to switch to other instruments.

"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!"
