Charlotte .. says, " I think Ann started around the holiday season, she’s had about one academic semester of once per week classes. She was still 2 years old when she started at Ottley’s Music School. Now she can find middle C, identify A, B or C anywhere on the keyboard, read notations like piano meaning play softly, fortissimo meaning play loudly, and quarter rest. She has been introduced to half and full notes and rests, but doesn’t yet consistently apply them. She can play simple 3-note sequences with either the left or right hand but sometimes prefers to play all notes with either her thumb or index finger rather than following the assigned fingers for each key. It’s really an extraordinary amount of progress for her age. I’ve been surprised" Read more

Tessa C. says, "I started taking lessons from Chris about two months ago as an absolute beginner and have seen a huge improvement over that time. Chris designs his lessons with a mix of standard/fundamental guitar exercises and songs of your choosing and it's great working with a teacher who understands that practicing needs to be fun in order to make you want to keep learning. In addition to building lessons that make learning guitar fun, Chris also works with me to coordinate lessons around my already busy schedule. One of my biggest roadblocks to finally starting guitar lessons was finding a teacher who would be flexible on timing and work with me to build guitar into my life, and Chris has done a wonderful job coordinating with me to make lessons possible. It's been such a great experience to learn a new skill as an adult and I would 10/10 recommend lessons with Chris!" Read more

Ben L. says, "Blues isn't something you "learn," but must "experience." Of all forms of music - rock, pop, folks, jazz - blues requires more musical "phrasing" and self-awareness. It's part of you, the musician, not something that is independent of you. I mention this because John embodies the genuine Blues. If you want to learn guitar and the Blues, John can do (like so many other teacher)... but what distinguishes John is he will guide your inner musicianship to externally manifest - for me, through my guitar. In short, John is better than advertised and highly recommend him for anyone who seeks music to be part of his/her life." 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?

I found Chris on lessons.com when I started my bass guitar journey. Before jumping into anything, he asked for background information before structuring lessons that would best fit my needs. I started working with Chris in the middle of September and I am so glad I was able to connect with someone who listens and encourages you to take an extra step when you may not feel confident to do so. Since working with Chris I have learned and gained an extraordinary amount of musical theory, playing by ear, and technical skills on the bass. He is an excellent teacher who is patient, kind and knowledgeable in this field. I highly recommend hiring Chris as either your bass guitar, guitar, or double bass teacher. Regardless of your age or skill level Chris will make sure that you are successful in your journey!
