Learn to play ukulele, guitar, or mandolin from an experienced performer and a patient but enthusiastic teacher. My aim is to teach you to play well enough to accompany your own singing, to write your own songs, or to play along with other folk, bluegrass, country, rock, jug band, old-time, or traditional jazz musicians.
I can teach all ages and skill levels. And I especially welcome experienced musicians who want to try out a new instrument. (As a part of our lessons, we could incorporate one-time sessions on some of the other more unusual instruments I play, such as jug, washtub bass, suitcase, and comb!)
My basic rates are $20 per half-hour, $25 for 45 minutes, or $30 per full-hour. We’ll start with a free half-hour consult so we can talk about your musical interests and goals, and then come up with a plan to meet those goals. I currently teach out of my home in Milwaukee’s Washington Heights neighborhood.
