LEARN UKULELE!

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!

    • Glad you liked it. I tried to show most of what I was doing in close up at various points. I think the best way is to play around and see what sounds good to you, instead of trying to faithfully follow one person’s cover of another person’s song, but if there are specific questions you have, email ukulele@llanoblue.com!
