I will break down the nuances of learning the ukulele in a friendly, clear, and articulate manner. We will discuss various concepts of the ukulele in the styles and songs you enjoy most.
About Adam C.

A graduate of the University of Rochester with a B.A. in Music and Psychology and trained at renowned National Guitar Workshop, Adam is an experienced teacher and performer on the guitar, piano, ukulele, and bass in a variety of styles, including rock, pop, jazz, classical, and folk. Adam loves to share his passion for music with others, and ever since his first student, an autistic child, Adam has sought to make learning music fun, regardless of age, style, and ability. *** Lesson Details *** My approach to teaching music is strictly an individualized one, catering to the specific interests and goals of each student. I believe that if learning music is truly enjoyable and fun, students will develop a sincere love for their instrument. In teaching children, my emphasis is on instilling in them a love of music. While progressing in music obviously requires preparation outside of lessons, I consciously avoid asking students to practice. Instead, I incorporate the music and styles that appeal most to the student and use them as vehicles for teaching concepts. I strive to make learning music fun, regardless of age, style, and ability. I organize an annual recital to showcase my students' talents and hard work. *** Travel Equipment *** I will provide all music and instructional materials, and ask that students provide a clean, quiet area to hold our lesson, ideally with a music stand. I also ask that a student provide their own instrument. If providing an instrument is not possible, I ask that the student notify me so I can provide an instrument for them in the interim. *** Specialties *** I specialize in a wide range of styles on the acoustic and electric guitar, piano, ukulele, and bass. I explain music theory in a fun, clear, and articulate manner and show its benefits and application in song writing, learning music, and playing by ear. My extensive background in rock, classical, pop, folk, and jazz allows for a truly cater my instruction to my student's tastes. I make it my mission to structure my lessons on my student's goals and interests and avoid imposing concepts that don't interest my students.

Adam has been an incredible instructor. I've been playing the guitar for 15 years, but haven't improved in a long time, so I decided to go back for lessons. Adam immediately identified some areas to work on to help me meet my goals, and I've already made noticeable improvements after just a few months of working with him. I would highly recommend him, even if you're a more advanced player. There's always more to learn, and Adam has a lot of different perspectives to offer with his vast knowledge of music theory and proficiency with multiple instruments and musical genres.

David, 8yo, just started his guitar lessons with Adam and he is extremely happy with what he already knows after only one lesson! We cannot wait for the next one!
