Music, Family, + Fun

Ukulele Lessons for Busy People 

Musical Mama offers beginner's ukulele lessons customized for moms, dads, and caregivers in and around Silicon Valley. 

Four Lessons. That’s It!

My unique course is a set of four ukulele lessons designed to jump-start your entry into making music. The comprehensive class materials ensure that you’ll learn a lot, all while having a blast playing songs that you and your kids will enjoy. 

Play with Your Kids

Receive practical tips on how to incorporate your new hobby into your daily life and get ideas on how to create musical traditions with your family. By the end of the course, you'll have a set of seventeen songs to play— a happy mix of traditional tunes, children’s classics, and one or two songs that are just plain silly! 

Give it a try– you're more musical than you think!



The private lesson package includes four hourlong lessons, course materials, and 17 songs. With the private lesson package, you get a class that goes at precisely your pace and instruction and tips that are tailored specifically for you. But perhaps most importantly, your child is welcome to attend private lessons with you! Prior to each lesson, I set out a few age appropriate activities for him or her to enjoy for the duration of the lesson.

The group lesson package includes four 75-minute lessons, course materials, and 17 songs. Music is a joyful experience when it's shared with others, and group lessons are an effective and fun way to learn to play. If you have some friends you'd like to take lessons with, contact me and we can plan a group course just for you! 



Students who are currently going through the course or who have completed the course may be interested in adding an extra hour of instruction to advance their playing. If there's a particular skill or technique you'd like to refine, let me know!

Are these lessons for kids or adults?

For the grown-ups! But your kids will benefit when you start playing and making music with them at home.  :)

Do I need to buy my own ukulele? 

Generally, yes. Unless we've made special arrangements prior to a class, all participants are required to provide their own ukulele and digital tuner to each lesson. Please check out my blog post featuring my ukulele and tuner recommendations

Where do lessons take place? 

Lessons take place in west San Jose, near Westgate Shopping Center. 

How does I get started? 

Simple! Just fill out the contact form

What is your availability for lessons? 

My availability is a mix of weekdays, weeknights, and weekends. 

How does scheduling work? 

As a general guideline, I suggest we schedule lessons to be two or three weeks apart. Moms and dads are busy people, and I want to make sure you have enough time to absorb everything from the previous lesson before we tackle new material.

PRIVATE LESSONS: Private lessons offer quite a bit of flexibility, schedule-wise. We can schedule all four lessons at the get-go, or we can schedule one lesson at a time.

GROUP LESSONS: Prior to the first lesson, the participants and I agree on dates and times for all four classes. 

What about payment? 

PRIVATE LESSONS: Payment is due in full at the first lesson in the form of cash or personal check made out to Musical Mama, LLC. Students have 365 days from the date of payment to complete the four lessons of the course. 

GROUP LESSONS: Once you have confirmed your interest in group lessons, an invoice will be sent to your email address. Payment via check or credit card is required to complete your registration.
