The Ukulele is in a world of it's own! It's easily portable and you can pull it out to jam or play as you sing just about anytime. It's an instrument that has a unique love from all of it's players, and once you learn how to play (in no time!) I'm sure you'll develop the same passion for the Uke!

We'll learn basic chords and strumming techniques as well as advanced fingerpicking, melody playing and the theory to help you choose chords that really fit the mood you're trying to create.

The Uke is such a unique and fun instrument to play. Plus, it is probably the most accessible instrument I have ever taught. It’s great for those who can’t quite get the hang of guitar. It helps build strength and rhythm that carries over directly to the guitar and other stringed instruments.
One of my favorite things to do is play duets with students, and the ukulele makes for some interesting pairings of instruments.

David is a wonderful instructor, fun and really enjoyable, and excellent professional. Thank you so much, David. Andre really enjoys the lesson.
Shaina M.
Piano lessons with David are really enjoyable. I chose him because of all the reviews that mentioned how patient and encouraging he is, and they were absolutely right. I'm an adult beginner and I was afraid to start lessons for a while because I can be an embarrassingly slow learner, but now I'm looking forward to them. Another thing that I think makes him a great teacher is how he provides specific feedback. Highly recommend.
Ron E.
I searched for an excellent upright bass teacher for a good while. Then I found David Lloyd. David is patient, humorous, friendly, knowledgeable and very professional. He carefully taught me all the necessary groundwork to enable me to continue on my own for a while. In a few months I will, without question, continue my studies with David. I would, without hesitation, recommend David to anyone interested in seriously studying the Upright Bass.

Marye combines discipline and skill with kindness and patience. She is a gifted teacher who cares deeply about her students, helping us increase our skills and grow and heal and express ourselves as human beings. I recommend her highly.
Wendy
There are piano teachers and then there is Marye. Marye is a graduate of one of the best music schools in the country. She combines yoga, psychology, singing, and digestible music theory to every lesson. You will stretch, sing, and clap your way to greater piano proficiency. Taking piano lessons from Marye is good for your soul.
Sue
“After decades of thinking I'd lost my ability to sing, I learned how to finally sing utilizing my diaphragm while studying with Marye! She helped me locate my vocal range, which was huge, while making it feel so inclusive and safe! The joy of singing has returned to my life through Marye's skilled, sensitive and sweetly cultivated music space.”

"Worth it!

Jesse's teaching style is a balanced combination of structure and flexibility. From each session to the next, the topics that we work on get unravelled. I believe it is planned that way so that I can absorb the concepts bit by bit. However, Jesse is flexible enough to teach me what I want to learn and to adapt to my learning pace. I see a lot of value in working with Jesse and I will try to make room in my schedule to continue my lessons with him."

"One day, I decided to learn ukulele by myself but I became quickly stuck. I found Carolyn on this website and then went to her place to take my first lesson. Carolyn is super sweet; very welcoming, smiling, fun to work with. She is very positive and gives great feedbacks all the time! I learnt a lot during our session!! At some point, we sat at her piano to talk about notes and keys: it was very interesting to switch to another instrument. In addition, her place has very harmonious vibes: when I left I felt so much better!!! I definitely recommend Carolyn for music lessons! And I look forward to our next ukulele lesson!"
