David L. says, "I have worked with Ian for over a year. Learning music at age 27 has been a huge challenge for me, but Ian did a great job of keeping me motivated and making it fun. He distilled music theory into simple terms and helped me learn songs I never dreamed of playing. Good instructors are able to take difficult concepts and simplify them for their student.

My goal as a teacher is to find the unique musical voice within each one of my students. Over the years, classical music has gained a reputation of being very strict, with little to no room for the performer’s interpretation. However, as a teacher, I work hard to establish a sense of critical thinking and inner musicality within my students, so that they can go out in the real world and be proud to share their unique musical identity with everyone. Finding your voice as a musician requires a great deal of resilience. Being able to push through boundaries and limitations will set you apart from others. This is why as a teacher, I challenge my

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?

José is an amazing teacher!! He is very knowledgeable and has amazing guitar skills that motivate me to practice more. I found him on here during quarantine and we would do lessons whenever we could, he is very accommodating to you’re schedule needs. He is very patient and kind, never made me feel bad when it took me too long to remember a chord😂 By far the best guitar teacher I’ve ever had!

Renata is an absolutely amazing piano teacher. She’s so patient and intuitive with me (I’m an adult student with zero experience) and she has totally helped me put my insecurities about starting an instrument in my 30’s aside. She’s actually made me feel confident that I can achieve my goals. I am excited to see all I’ll continue to learn with her leading the way!
