Professional and Personal

UKULELE INSTRUCTORS

The Ukulele is an amazing starter instrument for young students looking to discover their passion for music due to its small size and simplicity. Students at Twelve Tone Music school will learn how to tune the instrument, play basic chords, learn about strumming, and progress to playing different tunes and songs. Each student receives both customized personal lessons alongside the chance to play in a group setting. 

From Beginner to Expert

FIND THE RIGHT PROGRAM

While we do offer lessons and programs for these two instruments, the Ukulele is a very popular instrument for all ages, especially those who are just getting started. Playing the Ukulele can give younger students with interest in playing the guitar in the future a good handle on different skills such as tuning, strumming, and picking, among others. 

Ukulele Lessons

ONLINE OR IN PERSON

While we do put a great deal of emphasis on one-and-one lessons, it is also essential that students learn to play with both other ukulele stars and other instruments as well. At Twelve Tone Music School, our younger students have the unique opportunity to play alongside kids their same age that are just as passionate about learning the instrument as they are. This builds a welcoming community and sense of belonging as the students discover their talents.

We’ll work on singing and playing at the same time, learning either the songs that you love or songs suggested by the teacher that fit your current level.

Transitioning from ukulele to guitar

Many of our students also choose to transition to guitar after mastering the ukulele. You’ll have a lot of the technical and musical skills necessary at this point to advance from four strings to six quite easily. Many younger students take this route. However, the ukulele is so much fun and so easy to travel with that most students eventually come back to it.

Committed adult students can often find themselves strumming some of their favorite tunes in just a few weeks.
