The ukulele is a creative adaptation and redesign of the machete de braga, a small stringed instrument that was introduced to Hawaii by Portuguese immigrants in August of 1879. The Hawaiian people fell in love with the sound of the instrument and named it “ukulele" because the fingers of the performer dancing around on the neck and strings as a song was played resembled jumping fleas. Ukulele means jumping fleas in the Hawaiian language.

Since the ukulele is related to a European instrument and the guitar from Spain, the relative tuning is the same. It should be tuned a perfect fourth up from a guitar, so the first string is tuned to an A, second string should be tuned to an E, third string will be a C, & the fourth string should be tuned to a G an octave up. Most ukuleles have a fourth string that is an octave above what the normal progression would be of most stringed instruments. If your G string is not tuned an octave up it’s a larger size than the average ukulele G string ...

Do you want to sing & play your favorite songs?

Do you dream of writing your own songs?

I have been teaching music privately since 2009 and LOVE to help my students sing and play their favorite songs all while becoming a well rounded musician.

We will get to the joy of playing as quickly as possible and as we go along we will fill in the music fundamentals - reading and writing music, rhythm, technique, songwriting, music theory and more. It will be a fun and enriching experience.

I can't wait to connect with you - to support and challenge you and help you make your musical dreams come true.

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.”

I am loving working with Athena. It has just been 6 weeks and I can see progress. I am finally getting underlying answers to those issues I have always had and never understood. I think I am sounding much better - even though I am trying to be good and not listen to myself. Work with her and you will understand that. Leaving rating room to grow but completely recommend her.

Athena is professional, results oriented, kind, knows how to encourage young learners, and has a delightful sense of humor. I highly recommend her classes.

Athena is fantastic! I am old and learning how to play guitar so was really nervous. Athena is moving at my pace and makes it really easy. I like how she explains the why behind what she asks me to do.

"Jesse is great with kids. Our kids are 10 and 7 and they have fun with him while they learn. He strikes the right balance between theory and learning to play pop music. He is also very open to making adjustments specific to the temperament of each child/family which is remarkable. He is always responsive outside of lessons when we may have a question which shows that he truly cares about the progress his students make. We are lucky to have found him!"

Kamaka Vs. Martin Ukulele: Pros & Cons for Uke Students

When you enter the market to buy yourself a new (or used) ukulele there are many factors to take into account: size of the uke, the type of woods used, the level of craftsmanship, and most importantly the price you’ll pay to get your hands on it. In doing your research, the most important thing to start off with is your price cap. Are you looking for the cheapest uke you can find, which would be anywhere from $20-40? Is it the next level up, around $100-200? Or is it the tier where the inst …

What is a Concert Ukulele, and How is it Different?

Even among the same style of ukulele, there are slight differences such as material, construction, neck length, body size, and neck width and circumference. Yet, there are definable characteristics for each style that puts an instrument squarely into a category. A soprano ukulele is the smallest of the ukulele family. The concert ukulele is the next size up, and the tenor ukulele is …
