Hi, my name is Lorenzo Breda and I am a professional guitarist and media composer.

Chris S. says, "I am an older guy who has actually been playing guitar since my teens. But like many, I didn't play much at all throughout most of my life. Got back into it a few years ago, and decided to get serious about upgrading my skills. Sort of an old dog learning some new tricks. Randy is a great teacher! He is patient and perceptive. He doesn't just regurgitate a formulaic set of lessons, but he really looked at the skills I already had, then tailored his instruction to build on that. He showed me several techniques that were superior to what I had been doing, and designed a practice regimen that targets my particular goals. I'm already playing MUCH better, and it's only been four weeks. And I feel like there is great potential progress in my future. Randy Garcia is an excellent choice if you want guitar instruction!"

Your Ukulele Lessons questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do ukulele lessons cost?

In-person ukulele lessons cost $30 to $60 per hour on average to learn with a private instructor. 1-hour group ukulele classes cost $18 to $30 per student. Some music studios offer new student specials and sell discounted multiple-session packages that reduce the cost per class.

  • Online ukulele lessons cost $10 to $30 per month for subscription-based websites offering access to pre-recorded classes. While pre-recorded lessons are not the same as a real-time instructor, some websites allow you to submit practice videos for teacher review and feedback.
  • Online ukulele lessons using live webcam video calling with a private instructor cost $25 to $60+ per hour, depending on the teacher's experience and reputation.

Keep in mind you will also need to purchase a ukulele to practice in between lessons. Most entry-level ukuleles cost $50 to $150, while higher-end models cost $200 to $500+.

Is ukulele easy to learn, and can I teach myself?

Learning to play the ukulele can be easy and fun! Ukuleles are small and only have 4 strings, making chords and scales easy to learn and play without putting too much stress on your arms, wrists, and fingers. Additionally, ukulele strings are made of soft nylon, making them easier on your fingertips than guitar strings.

You can teach yourself to play the ukulele using YouTube videos and other free resources, but this method lacks structure and may take longer to see progress than if you learn with an instructor. A professional ukulele teacher can guide you in the right direction and save you from developing unhelpful habits early on in your practice.

How long does it take to learn ukulele?

While every individual is different, in general, it takes about 3 to 6 months of consistent practice to learn and become comfortable playing the ukulele. Practicing many hours per day may yield quicker results. That said, you can likely learn enough basic chord shapes and strumming patterns to play many favorite pop songs in just a matter of weeks, or even days.

How do I choose the best ukulele lessons near me?

When searching for ukulele lessons near you, be sure to:

  • Choose a teacher or music studio that has been in business 5+ years and is licensed and insured.
  • Check out their profile and reviews from past students on Lessons.com and Google.
  • Look for a teacher who has a flexible schedule that matches your needs.
  • Discuss your specific goals and ask them how they will structure their lessons to help you meet them.

What questions should I ask when searching for ukulele lessons?

Finding a ukulele instructor whose personality and teaching style meshes well with your own can make a huge difference in your learning and progress. Asking the right questions can help you choose the best ukulele teacher for you:

  • How long have you been playing and teaching ukulele?
  • What qualifications do you have?
  • What styles of ukulele do you teach?
  • Do I need to buy a ukulele to take lessons?
  • How long will it take for me to learn to play the ukulele?
  • How often and how long should I practice?
  • What is your cancellation policy? 
  • Are you running any new student specials or discounts?

Hes very knowledgeable in all genres and knows how to start you off as a new student or even a seasoned player. I love that i can come in and choose whatever genre i want to learn and come out with scales and exercises to make me such a better player. Patient and very friendly. No teacher like him. Truly the best! Thank you!!

Phil has been great giving our son guitar lessons for several months now. He's patient and customizes each lesson for our son, focusing on the style of music/songs he likes to play. Phil communicates well, is friendly and really cares about passing on his knowledge.

He is very concerned about making sure your creative vision comes to life in the best way possible. He has incredibly insightful advice but never tries to insert his ego into your project. He genuinely cares about his clients and wants to see them succeed.

Todd's extensive knowledge and genuine passion for music make him an outstanding teacher! I really appreciate his ability to make piano lessons both enjoyable and effective. My son always came home from lessons excited to show me what he’d learned that day- which is really saying something! Todd's kind nature and patience creates a warm, welcoming learning environment that puts both kids (and parents!) at ease. If you're searching for a piano teacher who can inspire and educate your child, while keeping things fun and engaging, Todd is the perfect choice!
