Ukulele is the perfect instrument for people who are just beginning their journey into the world of music, as well as a great instrument for experienced musicians to have some fun on.
Hour-long lessons are $25 at my Hayes Valley home, or $30 if you would like me to come to your location (price may vary if traveling outside of San Francisco). $5 discount for introductory lesson!
At your first lesson, in addition to learning a song and a little about the instrument, you will receive a packet full of useful ukulele information, including chord charts. Ukuleles come in a variety of sizes, and you will have an opportunity to try out different styles to see which is right for you! You don’t need to own a ukulele to have your first lesson, but you will need one to practice.
Ukulele changed my world, and it could change yours too. I have been making music for about 10 years, and although I enjoyed playing around on guitar for quite a while, I never felt quite at home on it. When I finally picked up a ukulele, I found that its four strings were much easier to master than a guitar’s six, and the smaller neck was easier to stretch my fingers across. The small, portable size also allowed me to carry it with me wherever I went, which meant that I practiced a lot more than I ever did on any other instrument.
Ukulele is now the primary instrument on which I write and perform my original music in indie-pop-folk-rock band, The Sweet Trade. I still carry a ukulele around with me most places I go; from walking around the city, a trip to the beach, or visiting the nieces and nephews, you’ll always find me strumming!
I look forward to playing with you.

And here is a video of me playing and teaching Rebel Rebel by David Bowie. It is not quite beginning level, but is very fun to learn!
