I love teaching music and at this time, I have students ranging from the age of 8-80.


I believe I have a practical and easy-to-follow approach to learning music - starting with the most basic, and leading the student forward to where they want to go.

I can help you learn:
• Guitar
• Ukulele
• Bass
• Percussion/drums
as well as basic theory, rhythm, and musical "thinking" on any instrument.

Please contact me for rates and available times.
I can also teach via Zoom, Skype, Facetime, and take payments via PayPal, Venmo, credit card, cash, or check.


I teach a weekly workshop called "The All In Good Time Orchestra" where we rehearse material, learn about charts, keys, transposing, and arranging. We are currently meeting on Zoom.

4 and 6 week workshops are also offered in the areas of: rhythm, basic theory, tab, and playing together.

I also teach workshops at several Ukulele Festivals in California and Oregon, as well as perform.

Please feel free to contact me to ask any questions about lessons, learning, and what you may expect from me during our lesson.

Rhan Wilson, Patti Maxine, Rick Zeek, and Michael Westendorp are Jazz The Dog and no, they don't play jazz - they play a mix of inspired Americana, originals, and some jazzy soulful deep grooves. Come up the valley to Joe's, or come down from the mountains - it's all good.
