Private Ukulele Lessons
Ages 7 – Adult / All Skill Levels

Ukulele’s popularity is on the rise! The ukulele (Jumping flea in Hawaiian) originated in the 19th century as a Hawaiian adaptation of the Portuguese machete (a small guitar-like instrument). The ukulele community is friendly, inviting, and the instrument’s size and crisp sound brings warm smiles on people’s faces.

Learning:

The ukulele (or ukelele) is a member of the guitar family of instruments. It generally employs four nylon or four courses of strings — Some strings may be paired in courses, giving the instrument a total of six or eight strings. Due to its small size and nylon strings, it is easy for kids to pick up.

Each of our lessons are tailored to each student. For beginners, it is important for us to keep the students motivated.  Ukulele lessons can be fun as groups and private lessons.

Performance:

We host recitals every month in our performance hall. Every student of the music school can join and perform the music of their choice. It is also an opportunity for many to meet music friends and create groups and music ensembles. We also host twice a year a Summer and Winter music festival, usually held over 2-3 days, where students perform their favorite music.

Teachers:

Our teachers have extensive education experience in music and many perform regularly with local orchestras or bands.

Our private lessons are one-on-one instruction and lesson lengths are 30 min, 45 min, or 60 min, held once each week.
