Would you like to
progress with the ukulele and upgrade your repertoire?
Come study with me and
go one step beyond the home position chords and basic strums. I’m offering private online ukulele lessons via Skype, personalised to the interests and capabilities of each student ( también disponibles clases en castellano).
I guess you already know me from my
classical style pieces and arrangements. I also enjoy playing (and teaching) jazzy ukulele, or fancy strummings.
Let’s work together on any of the following subjects:
Fingerpicking and classical guitar techniques applied to the ukulele. Learn Sor, Giuliani, Carcassi and other great composers works. Even my own works!
Chord melody and swing/jazz arrangements, and all the tricks needed to create your own arrangements.
How to master the full fretboard, leave the first frets behind!
Advanced strumming techniques: triplets, split strokes, …
Musical theory: the science behind chords and their harmonic functions.
And whatever we can think of.
If you want to learn how to play the ukulele, or learn to play it better, you cannot find a better teacher than Choan Gálvez. Choan is a skilled musician and composer and a kind, patient, and understanding music teacher.
Each ukulele lesson that I have had with Choan has been a well thought out step toward an overarching goal of developing strengths and understanding and working on weaknesses. He provides handouts for each lesson and instructional and inspiring demonstration videos.
He is very personable and I end each lesson with the satisfaction that I have found a great guide to help me work toward my musical potential on the ukulele. The fact that I end each lesson with a smile is a direct reflection of Choan’s musical skills and caring guidance.

I have really enjoyed my online ukulele lessons with Choan. His friendly and easy-going style make it fun and enjoyable to learn virtually. He thoughtfully prepares pieces to learn that help me to improve my playing and provides great feedback when I am stuck. I look forward to every lesson!
Choan is a wonderful and gifted musician and ukulele teacher! He has a vast knowledge of music theory and musical styles. His teaching style is unique and very effective in that each exercise and piece builds on the previous one to improve one’s skills quickly. My playing has improved dramatically in a very short time. Most of all, he is a very friendly, warm, and kind-hearted person. I highly recommend him as your next teacher!
When I started classes with Choan I had no idea about ukulele. I could place my hands to form chords and I could rip the strings to make them sound. But I didn’t understand what I was doing, I didn’t know my instrument and I didn’t have the ability to discriminate the music elements; not all notes last the same, not all strummings sound the same.
Choan has accompanied me closely on my learning all this time. Actually, he still does, and I probably wouldn’t love the ukulele as much if I hadn’t had his help.
