Local Ukulele Teachers

There are many teachers in the Edmonton area who offer ukulele instruction. The people below are the knowledgeable and kind people we recommend personally. (Each of them also offers instruction on other instruments as well.)

Ron Mercer – Edmonton (Westmount) some workshops outside Edmonton

Beginner-friendly, offers private ukulele lessons and periodically presents workshop-style or group ukulele sessions. Some of us have taken his strum workshop or his Christmas workshop. Flexible availability for continuing students or one-time lessons, and he can teach at your location or his (varying rate).

Ron says:  I have been teaching and jamming all my adult life and would love to get you started on this most wonderful of instruments. If you already play, then come on out and let’s get inspired with fun and different musical insights. I teach out of my house which is in the Westmount area. I am comfortable with group lessons and workshops on specific musical topics.

Gary (G.W.) Myers – Edmonton, just off Whyte Avenue. 

Beginner-friendly, offers private ukulele lessons, songwriting, and music theory as applicable. How do chords work? Why is that there? What are the rest of these frets for? Gary knows.
