Group Ukulele Classes


This introductory online class starts right at the beginning and builds skill by skill. No previous musical experience is expected or necessary. Participate online through Zoom.

Kids Group Lessons


Join Joel online after school on Wednesdays to learn a new ukulele song every week. Learn your chords and strums while playing current popular songs and timeless classics. (Ages 9-14)

Daytime Uke Groups


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 repertoire of songs they love.


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 jazz standards to popular music, all arranged for Ukulele Instrumental Ensemble.

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.
