Learn ukulele fast from an expert teacher with 30+ years experience
Experienced teacher of 30+ years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn songs they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of musical knowledge and skills. I typically recommend Hal Leonard books for beginners, and I also have the following tools available for use and demonstration during lessons: recording equipment, amps, effects, loopers, and more.
About Ken B.

I have been a performing singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist for 30 years and currently teach 60+ private guitar, bass, drum, ukulele, piano, voice, and music production students each week. My professional music experience includes composition, recording engineering and production, choir direction and band leading, and live performance and production. After receiving a Bachelor of Science degree from Indiana University with double majors in Marketing and Nonprofit Management and double minors in Economics and Music Technology, I was recruited by a national partnership of churches to serve as the Administrative Pastor and Music Director for a new church being started in Oregon. I currently write and perform with a number of local bands and musical groups and serve as a music director for a small progressive church in the Portland area.
