My 3 kids and I have been with Dark Mountain Music for almost 2 years now and absolutely love it! I'm always referring friends so I figured it's about time I left a review! lol The instructor is amazing and makes each lesson engaging and enjoyable. We take singing, piano and guitar lessons. Plus most recently music production. It's great that we can add or change instruments as we go without having to change studios or companies etc.. because they teach them all here. I also like that he comes to us for lessons instead of me having to drag my kids around. Super convenient that way. I've heard from many friends who are with other companies, that their younger kids don't enjoy piano lessons cause they're forced to work on classical music, but you get to play what you love here. You pick the songs to work on. Like my boys are learning video game music and current alternative music. Which is really cool to see and hear converted to the piano. I can't ever see us leaving Dark mountain music!

I have been taking singing lessons with the absolutely amazing Julia for almost a year now and my experience has been wonderful! Julia is a fantastic teacher. I have grown so much in my time with her and I'm looking forwarded to continuing to push my vocal boundaries with her help. I recently started piano with her as well and I'm loving every minute. Julia is professional, patient, and most importantly, inspiring. My lessons are my favourite day of the week.

Julia is so great! As an adult learner I was worried about not being quick like the kids. Julia is very patient with me and if she's frustrated she never, ever shows it!! Daniel runs an excellent business. Very professional and quick, open communication. 10/10 recommend.

I LOVE Dark Mountain Music! I get to see Julia for voice lessons and she has helped me so much with my confidence and ability to sing again! I had taken a year off from singing due to health related things and I was definitely nervous to start again but she was so kind and encouraging and made it a very fun hobby for me to enjoy again! Thank you Julia!!

What are the different types of ukuleles, and how do they differ in size, tone, and playability?

Ukuleles vary in size, each with distinct tones and playability. Soprano ukuleles are small with a bright tone, great for beginners and Hawaiian music. Concert ukuleles have a fuller sound and more fret space, ideal for performances.

Tenor ukuleles give you more resonance and projection, so you get that fuller, richer sound. Baritone ukuleles produce a deep, mellow tone like classical guitars, suitable for larger hands or diverse playing styles. These options cater to different preferences and styles.

Do you provide ukuleles for students to use during lessons, or do they need to bring their own?

Students should bring their own ukuleles to lessons, as it’s crucial for effective practice and progress. If you are unsure about purchasing a Ukulele, we can offer recommendations or guidance on purchasing or budget friendly renting options if needed, ensuring you have a suitable instrument to get started. This ensures full engagement and maximizes the learning experience.

What genres of music do your ukulele lessons cover, and can I request specific songs or styles to learn?

Definitely! Feel free to tell us your favorite songs, and we’ll make sure to include them in your lessons. Our instructors are flexible and accommodating, tailoring lessons to meet the individual needs and interests of each student.

Whether you have a specific song on the ukulele that you’ve been eager to learn or want to explore a particular genre or playing style, we’re here to help you achieve your musical goals. Just let us know your preferences, and we’ll work together to create a lesson plan that suits you.

What is the duration and frequency of ukulele lessons?

We offer weekly music lessons in 30-minute, 45-minute, and 60-minute durations. We recommend 30 minutes for ages 4-8, 45 minutes for ages 9-12, and 60 minutes for ages 13 and up. The lesson times are all set up to match the attention spans and stages of development for different age groups, so everyone can have the best learning experience possible within their budget. You can even customize how long your lessons are later down the road if you think you would benefit from some extra time!
