Start here, no matter how experienced you are:

For Ukulele (and Guitalele)

The ukulele is the perfect instrument for anyone who strongly feels they lack the talent to play a musical instrument—we will prove it wrong in these lessons! (Once you know how to play the ukulele, you will have a great head-start in learning the other string instruments too... as you wish.)

Common Concerns

“I don't know anything about music!”

Great! Our free workshops start at square one. :-) (Of course, folks who already play can still learn plenty from here as well.)

“But I'm TONE DEAF!”

We've found that 99.9% of "tone deafness" is just due to a lack of ear training. Let's put it another way: you enjoy music, right? That means you are able to hear the tones. You simply lack the experience needed to “pick them out” and sing/play them. Our free Get Started workshop will start you on the path.

“Music is such hard work.”

Not if it's fun. That's the secret to success: make it fun. Best tactic? Play with others. Learn with others!

Music is a non-verbal language that connects people. And learning a language is most fun (and effective) when you can “speak” with others.

Thankfully, you don't have to wait to start learning with others. Whether you're experienced or just starting out, there are lots of folks at your level who are itching to play and learn with you. You just need to find them!
