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?
PRIVATE LESSONS: Private lessons take place in west San Jose (near Saratoga and Campbell).
GROUP LESSONS: Group lessons may take place in my home or at the home of someone from the class. For certain days/times (eg- late on school nights), I may be unable to host in my own home. I'm looking for a studio space or community room to rent for group lessons, so if you know of a space, please let me know.
How does I sign up?
Simple! Just fill out the contact form.
What is your availability for lessons?
My availability is a mix of weekdays, weeknights, and weekend times.
How does scheduling work?
As a general guideline, I suggest we schedule lessons to be one to two 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.
If you have a question that hasn't been addressed here, Please contact me.
