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?

Saulo Q.
Jonathan is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about the guitar. He takes his time explaining and breaking concepts down and has always worked with me to meet my specific needs. I have tried lessons with other people before, and by far Jonathan has been the best experience I have ever had with a guitar instructor. I have now been taking lessons for a year and a half and am grateful for every single moment.
