Ukulele and Guitar Lessons

Are you or your little one a budding rock star?  Or do you just want to learn how to play some songs on the guitar or ukulele?  Mr. Hoo teaches introductory guitar and ukulele lessons for all age levels.  Lessons are tailored to the individual, and kept fun (especially for the kids).  Mr. Hoo normally starts younger kids on the ukulele (starting around age 5), with guitar or ukulele for older kids (7 or 8, depending on the child) and adults.  Mr. Hoo does not do formal vocal lessons, but if you want to learn how to sing and play, Mr. Hoo can help you with that.  Mr. Hoo is teaching exclusively at Ukulele Portland at Lloyd Center.  Get more info and sign up here.

Join our Fun-filled Ukulele Adventure: Ukulele for Parents and Kids!


Are you a parent looking for a fantastic way to bond with your little one through music and play? Look no further!  Taught by local children’s musician, Mr. Hoo (Jeff Inlay), Ukulele Portland’s “Ukulele for Parents and Kids” is the perfect opportunity for you and your child to embark on a harmonious musical journey together.


What to Expect:


1. Learn to Strum the Ukulele:

No prior musical experience required! In our friendly and supportive environment, you’ll be introduced to the enchanting world of the ukulele. Mr. Hoo will teach you the basics, from how to hold the ukulele to simple chords and strumming patterns. You’ll be amazed at how quickly you can start making music!


2. Play and Sing Along:

We’ve curated a collection of delightful and easy-to-learn songs that you can play and sing along with your little one. These songs are not only fun but also educational, making learning a joyous experience for your child.


3. Engage Your Little Ones:

Children aged around 5 and above are welcome to learn alongside you, and they’ll be encouraged to pick up a ukulele if they wish. However, younger children can participate in various engaging ways, such as shaking egg shakers, dancing to the rhythm, clapping their hands, and singing along. It’s a musical playground for their creative spirits!


4. Family Bonding Time:

This class is not just about learning music; it’s about creating lasting memories with your child. As you strum together and sing your hearts out, you’ll strengthen your bond while introducing your child to the joy of making music as a family.


5. Social Interaction:

Our group classes provide an excellent opportunity for parents and children to socialize and build connections with other families who share the love for music. It’s a chance for your child to make new friends while you connect with fellow parents.


6. Explore Musical Creativity:

While our structured lessons provide a foundation, we also encourage creativity. Feel free to explore and experiment with your ukulele, adding your unique touch to the songs and creating cherished memories with your child.


7. Confidence Building:

Playing the ukulele and singing in a supportive group setting can boost your self-confidence and encourage your child to express themselves fearlessly through music.


8. Take the Music Home:

You won’t just leave with newfound skills; you’ll also receive materials and resources to continue your musical journey at home. Practice becomes playtime, and your family’s love for music will continue to grow.
