After the first lesson you will be making music, playing songs and be on your way to achieving your musical goals with the ukulele. Playing Ukulele requires a knowledge of chords, melody, strumming technique as well as knowing songs all of which we will begin to learn in your first lesson.

With 10+ years as a music teacher and professional musician I have picked up many approaches that will insure you are making the most progress and truly finding your musical voice.

A great instrument to play! And LOTS of fun. You can be up and playing basic ukulele in a very short time, and as you progress, we will add all the rhythmic strums that make the ukulele come alive. The ukulele can cover almost every style of music there is...from traditional Hawaiian music to rock!... and everything in between. Let me show you how to express your inner musician with the ukulele. You will have a blast!

You know you want to. Get that ukulele you've been daydreaming about. Then let me teach you how to jam on it. The uke is an ideal instrument for beginners of all ages. Its size makes it easy to manage, and with only four strings, it is simplicity itself. In fact, I guarantee you will be able to play a song after only one lesson. So go ahead! Stop dreaming and start playing. You'll be glad you did.

Juli is amazing! My 7 year old son loves his lessons with her so much, he waits at the door for her to pull up because he's so excited. She does a great job getting him to focus while keeping the lesson fun. She's also great at motivating him to practice.

The ukulele is a fun, low-pressure instrument with more potential for great musicality than may first meet the eye. The learning curve is low and the rewards are high with the ukulele. You can learn 50% of your favorite songs within the first month. It's a great portable party trick and a lovely instrument to work towards mastering.

Lucciana's incredible energy and ability to connect with children in an instant is the first thing that I experienced upon meeting her. Underneath her warm, welcoming exterior are layers upon layers of musical talent and wisdom that make for a top notch teacher/collaborator. Lucciana truly is the best of the best. Los Angeles is at a loss without her!!!
