About this pro

Since the stay at home order in March 2020, our company founder, Eliot, has put all his energy into learning how to be the best, and most fun online teacher possible. In that time he developed a unique setup with visual learning tools, games, and the best possible audio quality that all of our teachers implement in their lessons.

Above all else, we are dedicated music teachers. We have a real passion to help students, always going the extra mile to make lessons fun and engaging. This last year, we’ve been able to connect with all kinds of people, and it’s been an incredibly positive experience. Meeting new students and bonding over music really helped us get through the last 12 months, and we want spread the joy that comes from music to as many people as we can. That is the mission of Cloud Chords.

    Eliot is teaching me the Uke on zoom. I have learned so much!

  • Maria Littlesun

    Eliot Jones has developed a neat system for teaching music via Zoom. I have found learning ukelele to be a simple and fun once a week commitment that is good for the soul. Anyone would find Eliot to be a knowledgable, adaptive, and a perceptive teacher.

How did you get started teaching?

Last year, when Covid happened, there were suddenly no gigs, no in-person lessons, and seemingly no prospects for a musician and teacher like myself. The future was bleak and uncertain. However, as you know, the show must go on! That’s why I decided to double down on music, and put all my energy into learning how be the best online music teacher that I could be. 

 I developed my own unique whiteboard system that allows our teachers to use visual learning tools and games in their lessons. I tinkered endlessly with interfaces and ethernet cables learning how to set up a remote lesson space for the best possible audio and video quality. I gathered, and even created my own resources to screen share and make lessons more engaging. Now, thanks to your interest and support, I’ve been able to connect with all kinds of people, all over the country, and it’s been an incredibly positive experience. Meeting new students and bonding over music really helped me get through this difficult time, and also to grow as a teacher.  

Now, I'm using everything I've learned to help other teachers and students have the best possible experience learning music online. That’s the mission of Cloud Chords. We're jazzed to offer a variety of lessons with our local teachers (who are basically rock stars).  All of our teachers are active, renowned, and vetted professional musicians. We welcome anyone who wants to learn music, and work with neurodiverse students and people of all ages. 

-Eliot Jones, Director/Founder
