Ukelele lessons for 7 year old
Can anyone recommend a good teacher for my grandaughter who wants to learn
to play the ukelele? She needs someone who can help learn to be persistant
and give her faith that she will learn.
The Lamorinda Music store in Lafayette has a free beginner class once
a month. Or if you are looking for a private teacher, I'm sure they
would be able to direct you to someone:
Our published and awesome teacher, Dix Bruce, is our ukelele guru over
here at Freelove Music School. His bio is published on our website at
www.freelovemusicschool.com. We are located on the corner of Piedmont
Ave and Pleasant Valley.
Playful ukelele lessons for mom/adult - fun person
Hi, I'm looking for some very playful ukelele lessons for
me, with the goal of learning a handful of sing-along songs
to play with my daughter and family & I think it would be
great to try something really different.
Its not about reading music, or learning the scales, but
listening, feeling, and playing a few simple tunes. Who can
I call? I live in N Berkeley. I may also look to take a
few djembe lessons (I have a nice djembe already); and may
add family drumming together too. Someone versed in good
songs, ukelele, drum, singing and kids/family would be the
best. Help me get fun! I don't want to be serious.

Tell Gary that Alana sent you!
Didn't see your original post, but I play 'ukulele for Mahea
Uchiyama at the Center for International Dance.
We don't currently have an 'ukulele class, but my teacher, Uncle
Saichi holds some classes at Music Works in El Cerrito
I believe Duane, Music Works' owner, also has a class there.
Here is a list of Polynesian musicians in the bay area
You might be able to find someone else offering classes. Feel free
to email me for more information.
An easy, convenient and free place to start is YouTube. There are lots of
simple ukulele lessons for songs on-
line. I learned ''Happy Birthday'' ASAP!
Music Works in El Cerrito has a sign in their window for
ukelele lessons.My child took saxaphone lessons there and we
liked the place a lot. Ellen
Saw an article in the Lamorinda Weekly a few months ago
about a group of all ages who gets together to play the
ukulele in Lafayette. Try this link or google lamorinda
You can also rent a uke for the class for $5.
I am looking for a ukulele teacher for lessons for my six year old
son and me. We'd both be starting from scratch. Ideally the teacher
could come to our house in N. Berkeley once a week, but we'd be open
to traveling or group lessons as well. Any recommendations?
Want to learn ukulele
I have a good friend who performs for parties and events in
the Bay Area. While I've never taken lessons from her
myself, she is a warm, patient, and loving person with a lot
of talent and I would expect her to be an excellent teacher.
Contact Tiffany Lin (email@example.com) to speak to
her about it!
I have a great uke teacher at Acme House of Music. She is so
lovely and grounded and dedicated and just wonderful with
kids. I take lessons from her and I love it!! My 3 year old
son adores her. She goes by the name of Tippy Canoe-she's
also a singer-songwriter, drummer and guitar player with her
own band and several cds. Acme House of Music is at 3715
MacArthur Blvd, Oakland (in the Laurel). The number is
I'm looking for a ukelele teacher for my honey. He has been teaching himself and is
at the stage where some instruction would be great. Any advice? There's nothing
uke-specific in the archives. Thanks!
Before anyone rushes to say that the ukelele is a butt-easy
instrument to learn and that I don't need lessons, please keep in
mind that not everyone catches on so easily! I've had my ukelele
for years and can strum out 2 songs. I'm hoping there's someone
out there who can get my un-musically oriented self up and
running, someone in the Oakland/Temescal area and someone who
won't be super expensive.
Sorry, no responses received to either of these requests!
