Private Lessons

We are doing virtual Skype/Zoom/FaceTime lessons. If you are using an Apple iPhone you are already set-up to use Facetime.

For Skype go to their webite and download the app for your computer, tablet or phone and signup (it's FREE) — Skype is part of Microsoft. Them let us know you user name and the call can be initiated on our part. We will be doing the Skype and Facetime lesson on your regularly scheduled time. Or, we can setup an different time if you are at home and your schedule has changed.

For Zoom . Sign-up for the FREE account. You can download the app for your computer, tablet or phone. Funky Frets will set-up a repeating meeting for you lesson time and send you an email with the link and password. Then all you need to do is join the meeting i.e., your lesson.

Virtual Lessons are the same as in-person private lessons. The only thing that can't be done the teacher can't write in your book. We can email you the notes from the session. Or, with Curt's web site that he has had setup for years to do virtual lessons, alot more options are available for you and your teacher to track your progress, provide notes and recommend from the over 600 lessons Curt has on-line.

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

Aloha, Curt, All I can say is WOW! What you have accomplished is simply incredible! All the bestGlen Hirabayashi, The Aloha Boys
