(AGES FIVE AND UP)
Our ukulele instructors teach folk, country, pop, and rock-n-roll styles — and classical too. Beginners work on chords, tablature, simple songs and melodies, sight reading and theory. Each lesson will challenge you with a new technique or music theory, and ends with something fun – such as your favorite riff or song. We employ a variety of ukulele method books, online resources, and apps based on student needs and preferences, and to assist in education. The ukulele is also a great instrument for young students to begin with, and it can act as a gateway to other instruments, specifically the guitar.

What will I learn from ukulele lessons at the Conservatory?

Do I need to purchase a ukulele to learn the instrument?
Students will need to purchase their own instrument for studying ukulele. If you currently are considering a ukulele purchase and need recommendations, our instructors are happy to help! You can email Corryne about recommendations anytime! We also do an inspection of your instrument at the first consultation (to check for tuning issues, or if the ukulele needs new strings, etc.).
