Four strings and lots of heart.
There's a reason the ukulele is so popular now. It's relatively easy to play, and it's lots of fun.
Beginners will learn a handful of chords to play familiar tunes right off the bat to feel successful. You will be surprised how many songs you can play with only 3 or 4 chords! More advanced players will focus on additional chords, easy licks, and a variety of strums. The goal is to get you playing and singing your favorite songs immediately. The more you play, the faster you will be able to change chords and conquer more complex songs.
Email me for details about lesson packages and schedule availability. I require a 24 hour cancellation notice.
Rock and roll is fun to play on the uke and your friends can sing along with you. When you are able to change chords and play with a regular rhythm, there are ukulele jams to join all over the Bay Area. I host the Marin Uke Jam - we meet the first Tuesday of the month. Email me for location, times and music downloads.
"Amy put me at ease right away. By the end of just a couple weeks I couldn't believe how many songs I could play! I also gained an appreciation for how versatile of an instrument the uke is." ~ Marie N, Corte Madera
