I developed a style of teaching using tablature that allows students to quickly learn the ukulele and continue to improve on their own.
Even if you are visiting Kauai and have time for only a lesson or two, you can learn techniques and take tablature books and DVDs home with you which will allow you to learn on your own.
- Learn tunings and techniques specific to ukulele.
- Understand rhythms—the basic building blocks of music.
- Get a solid foundation in music and learn tablature.
- Students receive printed tablature with rhythms and instructional DVDs of the music. Download a PDF tablature sample.
I teach a variety of styles:
- Traditional and Contemporary Hawaiian
- Contemporary Jazz
- Popular Music
- Bossa Nova

If you are visiting Kauai and want to take a lesson (or lessons), I have ukuleles available in the studio for your lesson. However, I do not have ukuleles to take out of the studio. So if you want to practice after your lesson, you may want to consider bringing an ukulele with you.
