Ukulele Lessons

In-home and online instruction for kids and adults in Fort Mill, SC and surrounding areas

About our Ukulele Lessons for Kids

We believe learning the Ukulele should be enjoyable and rewarding! We partner with our students and their families to:

  • Encourage regular practice to instill the necessary discipline and habits to help each student excel in their learning.

  • Read chord charts, sheet music, and successfully play music.

  • Cultivate a passion for music and an excitement to learn!

Beginning Lessons for Kids

Playing the Ukulele is so much fun!

  • For our younger ones, we incorporate several music theory games to keep interest and enthusiasm high. Sometimes they have so much fun they don't even realize they are learning to read music or compose a song!

  • Students will learn how to tune their own ukulele and properly care for their instrument.

  • All beginner ukulele students will know how to identify and use the individual parts of their instrument.

  • Students will begin to read and create their own chord charts.

  • We also encourage students to perform at our recitals! The feedback given to the student helps them grow as musicians and improve their confidence.

Intermediate Lessons for Kids

When a ukulele student has a thorough understanding of the basics:

  • Our instructors start to introduce strum patterns.

  • Students learn basic open chords, minor chords, and bar chords.

  • Ear training is also introduced to our younger students with fun activities.

Advanced Lessons for Kids

Advanced ukulele lessons for kids offer:​​

  • An environment where big concepts in music, such as music theory, technique, and artistry are presented in a fun and exciting approach!

  • Kids will learn how to get the most out of their practicing, aim for successful and increasingly comfortable performing experiences, and reach for new levels of telling beautiful stories through music.

  • Kids will learn advanced chords and individual notes on their ukulele.

  • Kids will continue to perform and receive feedback that will help them get more comfortable with their stage presence.

From our students:

“The kids are truly enjoying your lessons. I find Ayush going to the piano sometimes 2 or 3 times on the weekend (on his own!). We love having music in own house and I love that you are nurturing that in my kids.” 

—  Sweta from Matthews
