Hi, I’m Matt, and welcome to our Patreon page.

I love the ukulele. The only thing I enjoy more than playing it, is helping other people learn to play things they thought they never could.

Ever since my gameboy ran out of batteries on my grandpa’s boat, I’ve been totally obsessed with the ukulele. It is small enough to carry anywhere, but can play anything with the right mindset and approach! The instrument didn’t make sense to me at first, and that was the appeal. It was a challenge to overcome – each and every technique, chord, and song. When I was in college, I studied music and I brought my ukulele to every class I had with the intent of cracking the code and learning how it all worked. The internet also proved to be an incredible resource with sites such as Ukulele Underground being my best teachers! The ‘aha’ moments were my absolute favorite part of learning. I started as a performer, but I was never very comfortable as one. Playing in front of people was nerve-wracking! Teaching on the other hand, is something I’m absolutely passionate for.

Since 2010, I’ve been teaching the ukulele online through programs such as Skype and it has been the best job and career I could have ever hoped for. Helping people break through challenges and find those ‘aha’ moments, just like I did when I was learning, is what I live for! Building lesson plans for each person has taught me so much about people and that everyone learns in their own unique way. The best part about one-on-one lessons is adapting to each individual’s way of learning. I’m fortunate enough to have taught thousands of lessons and even been featured in the NY Times for my online teaching.

I'm incredibly excited about this Patreon page. I'll be creating completely free lesson videos each week, and your contribution will allow me to continue creating high quality content. Each month I'll create six new videos.

- Monthly Video Releases -
  • 4x Webcam Sessions
  • Live Q&A
  • Song Lesson

I hope this page can grow and evolve based on the input of the Patrons. Your input is invaluable and will help shape the content that is created. Ideally, these tutorials cover concepts and materials that help the Patrons the most.

Thank you so much for checking out this page and the support.
