Group Ukulele Classes

Learn to play the ukulele in just 4 lessons. This introductory class starts right at the beginning and builds skill by skill. No previous musical experience is expected or necessary.


Beginner Ukulele Part 2 builds and develops the skills acquired in Part 1 without skipping a beat. At the end of this session, all of the essential techniques of ukulele playing will have been explored.

Daytime Uke Groups


This is a casual daytime musical experience where we will build a repertoire of instrumental music arranged in two to four parts. The repertoire ranges from classical to traditional to contemporary music.


One of the main things we love about the uke is getting together with others to play and sing songs. This is a small intimate group who get together on a weekly basis during the day to build a songbook together.

Private Lessons

We can work together at your speed and find music that really inspires you to play. Private Lessons are mostly scheduled on an ongoing weekly basis. We can also look at one-off lessons and short term sessions (i.e. 1 to 4 sessions).

Mondays to Thursdays with both day and evening times available.

Private lessons are a great way to start right from where you are and focus on specific projects and skills that you find interesting and rewarding. They can also be just the thing if a group environment isn’t your best learning situation.

Private lessons are my preferred way of teaching elementary school aged children.

  • We’ll learn songs and repertoire you love.
  • All theory and technical explanations tailored to you and your existing knowledge base.
  • What will we learn? Up to you. I can guide you through learning some music I think you’ll love, or, you can lead the way and I’ll coach you through rough spots of your own musical explorations.
