Skill Development for every player!

Are you new to ukulele? Are you stuck at an intermediate level and looking for assistance to reach the next step up? Are you getting pretty good and can now see some holes in your knowledge?

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.
Formerly an instructor at MacEwan University Outreach.

It’s the 2nd Annual Ukulele Jam Camp, presented by our good friends at the Northern Bluegrass Circle. Workshops led by noted ukulele-ist Mark Baker!

Your fee covers three one hour workshops, Saturday night accommodations, meals, snacks, and a mini festival. Jam until the wee hours. Or sleep. We won’t judge you. Did we mention that the food is excellent? It is.

It is excellent fun and a great way to meet other players (and ogle their ukuleles). You’ll meet Acoustic Music Workshop people too! Ogle their banjos!

Don’t be sad and regretful in the doldrums of winter when you overhear everyone lovingly reminiscing about their woodland musical adventures. JOIN THEM!
