Ukelele is a super fun and easy instrument to pick up - with only four strings, it's a little easier to handle than a guitar, and it's widely used in popular music today. I have students as young as 4 years old all the way up to adults looking for a new hobby in their retirement.

Let's sing and play together!

About Megan

I grew up in a music store, and learned a love for music at an early age. I started piano at age 3, and just kept adding instruments from there. I majored in music at MidAmerica Nazarene University, where I was on scholarship for Piano, Trumpet and French Horn. I have taught General Music, Beginni

I wish I could give Megan ALL the stars in the world; 5 does not seem enough. She has taught my son guitar for 9 years, initially in person and, since. COVID, also on line. She has incredible patience, and immense musical knowledge, and such kindness and also boundless enthusiasm for ALL music and instruments! She is also just a great and super smart human being! She was easily able to translate her in-person experience to teaching him online, so I recommend her either way -without any hesitation! ❤️
Colin
Megan is an excellent music teacher that helped show me different ways to overcome challenges that I was having. She is very patient and kind and she worked hard to make connections with me and personalize my lessons.
Willa
I honestly think one of the best decisions of my life was deciding to take a lesson with a music teacher I found through a friend. I was nine and desperate to find a teacher who would take me seriously and help me grow as a musician. I remember first liking her Harry Potter necklace, and then being so surprised that she taught me in an hour the chords I had been trying to learn on my own for six months. Six years later, Megan has become not only my mentor, best friend, and biggest supporter, but has also modeled for me how to be a strong, confident woman in today's society. She constantly pushes me to be better, and she is always there for me whether it be for music theory questions or movie suggestions. I would not be where I am today musically, lyrically, or emotionally without Megan and her amazing lessons. I owe so so much to her and continue to learn so much from every class. She is everything I hope to be and the best teacher anyone could hope for.

Private Ukulele Teacher

Teresa especially enjoys introducing beginners of all ages to the ukulele, which was her first musical passion as a young child. Her nurturing approach begins with the absolute basics.

Beginners need a ukulele that is an actual instrument rather than a toy. The most important difference is whether the instrument will stay in tune. If in doubt, stop in any music store and ask for help deciding whether you need to upgrade it.

Another note: all Teresa's beginning uke players ultimately sing too. But no need to mention that yet unless you want to! :)

About Teresa

A musician since age 4, Teresa's dad took her early passion for music seriously. So she respects the power that parents have to foster their children's musical lives! She notes the many stories she has heard over the years: "If someone had just supported my interest"... "If my teacher had listened t

I was looking for an instructor who could help me with a refresher on my piano skills from when I was much younger and Teresa was the perfect find. She walked me through an accelerated piano book and has been more than flexible with my hectic and unpredictable work schedule. Would recommend Teresa to any new or returning piano/keyboard players
Thomas
A few spectacular things about Terese and music:

1. She's good on Zoom, not all teachers are. Very personable!
2. She's fun and practical. I am teaching music to children and teenagers. She knows all the tricks with these age groups, passes them on and makes it easy.
3. She's deeply rooted in music, and respects and appreciates all kinds of music.
4. Teresa is a pragmatist and realist. She helps the student exactly where his/her need is greatest. She uses our time together well.
5. She shares delightful music sheets by email. For an upcoming Halloween-themed class I'm teaching, she sent me some "scary" ghosts songs that fit the bill perfectly.

She is a good teacher! Kind, and very informative.

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!

About Steve

Music has been a part of my life for over 5 decades. I stepped onstage when I was 15, and have been active in the music business ever since. I was raised in the New York / New England area, and played in many bands in the 70's and 80's, most notably the band AVALON. I moved to Florida in the late 80

Steve is a great instructor. He's knowledgeable and patient. I'm a beginner mandolin player but more experienced at guitar. Steve knows the right approach and progression to my lessons, incorporating the experience I already have. Highly recommend!
Daniel K.
Steve actually researched a style of play that he was unfamiliar with to teach me. Obviously a master musician, he analyzed the basics of the style and started from my baseline, teaching me the technique from the ground up. A dedicated and friendly teacher, I'd recommend him to anyone.

He is flexible with the lessons, concentrating on whatever is giving me issues that week. I love that he customizes your musical goals: I will never be Jake Shimabukuro, but I will be able to play along the next time someone says "California Dreamin' in G". I definitely recommend Jess to all the old ladies that want to learn an instrument - and everyone else! Next stop....bass guitar!"

"My son has special needs related to an anoxic brain injury. This can create frustration with simple things like learning a new chord that feels funny or is difficult to move your fingers to. He always checks in with us to see what concerns we have and then, helps us by offering suggestions on how to make something easier or less frustrating to learn. I think Jonathan does a good job of meeting us where we are. Jonathan is patient with both of us. Today, he talked to my son about practicing communicating so we can understand how to help him learn. He talked to me about it being ok to break away from the timing and to hit chords at the same time as my son so the song can come together."
