Fellow Ukulele Teachers and Educators Around the World

The best way to select a good teacher is to simply take a few lessons to see if there is a good match. Ask around and get recommendations from fellow ukulele players.

Here is what Peter Rhee said about my (Curt Sheller) books.

"Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books!" - Peter Rhee

“To me music theory is to music as physics is to the universe. It can be super complex or quite simple.”

Larry Wyatt, As the music teacher at Westside Elementary School, Hood River, Oregon, USA Larry developed a wildly successful school ukulele program.

“The self-taught man seldom knows anything accurately, and he does not know a tenth as much as he could have known if he had worked under teachers; and, besides, he brags, and is the means of fooling other thoughtless people into going and doing as he himself had done.” ― Mark Twain

( A little tough talk from Mark, but quite true. Curt )

Finding a Good Teacher

Here is my take on finding a good teacher. I was lucky enough to find a great teacher early in my development would like to pass on a few tips for finding a good teacher yourself. For ukulele it will take a bit of work - but with the Internet you can study with anyone in the world and try out different teachers.
