Curtis Kamiya Studio Private Ukulele & Guitar Lessons in Honolulu, HI

Want to help you to go where you're interested in going. If you're just getting started and want to play music in the backyard with your friends, we can pursue that goal. If you've been playing for years, but don't quite understand why certain chords sound good together, or what notes to play for your solo, we can learn that together. If you're semi-professional and want to work on your stage presence and your songwriting, we can do that too. I'm here to help you achieve your goals and guide you on your unique journey.

I want to make music fun, exciting, and accessible. I have a very practical and pragmatic approach to playing music. I play music for a living, so I'm less dogmatic about technique and method, and more interested in what works. We don't learn out of a method book. I custom tailor a curriculum to meet your skill level, learning style, and personal taste. Students find me patient, enthusiastic, and flexible. Above all, I want you be stoked to play music, and have fun. If we're not having fun, we're doing something wrong.

  Your first lesson's free

I'm a beginner but have had a few other teachers. What those guys were lacking, Curtis has. I really didn't like the little 4 x 4 rooms I took lessons in from previous teachers, so I was stoked with the big layout of Curtis's studio. I also like his intro policy; your first lesson's free and he uses that lesson to get feel from you about what you want to get out of the lessons.

Like many chronic guitar-noodlers, I usually hate guitar lessons. But one day, I found my guitar playing stagnating, and found Curtis on Craigslist.

I took guitar lessons weekly from Curtis for several months before I had to move away from Hawaii, and I loved it. Lessons were always fun, always insightful, and always encouraging.
