Marc R. says, "I've been taking lessons with Aaron for over 2 years and I feel my playing and technique has greatly improved. I started out with a rudimentary understanding of music and music theory but now have a much better grasp of it. While I still have plenty of miles left to go on my musical journey, Aaron has set me up with good fundamentals and techniques. He's also a great jazz guitarist if you're looking for that too.

Maureen S. says, "This is my second time taking lessons with Kelli Ann (the first time was years ago) and was happy to discover that she is still teaching. She is very easy to work with and tailors her approach to what each person wants to accomplish which can range from personal to professional. I think that her level of commitment is interest is the same for both. I highly recommend Four Winds Vocal Artistry!" Read more

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?

Reviews for Buffalo Grove ukulele teachers

Recent success stories from people in the Buffalo Grove area.
David H.
I contacted Aaron because of the description of topics of instruction he listed in his ad for lessons. They were exactly what I've been looking for. The main item I've been looking for is music theory. I don't want to just learn how to play a piece of music. I want to know how the song was created and why the chords progress the way they do. And Aaron is guiding me on my path step by step. So far he as the patience of a saint dealing with this late to the party student. And I plan to test his patience by continuing to ask my main questions for everything.......Who, What, When, Where & Why?

Kelli has been working with my son for a couple of years and has brought his voice, and his confidence, to places I never imagined! He has developed solid vocal skills and control under her guidance. She is flexible and accommodating. Just a perfect match!

Marty is a great instructor. He listens and responds with exactly what I am looking for. Unlike some, he truly listens and understands what I am and prepares lessons appropriately. He is not "That guy" who wants to show you what he can do. I have been playing for 45 years (on and off) and I highly recommend him!
