Three (3) Ways to Study with Curt

Don't live in the area you can take on-line lessons using Skype or Apple Facetime.

Before the advent of the Internet and high-speed connections to study with a top teacher you had to live relatively close to and take the time to get to the lessons on a regularly scheduled basis. If you lived near a big city with a vibrant music scene and a bit of luck in finding that teacher that might have been possible

With the Internet these limitations of time and distance are no longer an obstacle to gaining access to studying with a top, experienced and professional teacher anywhere in the world. Taking advantage of the latest technologies and practices, I have developed a program of online study that targets specific skills for aspiring ukulele players and music in general.

Here are three options for a more structured approach to learning the ukulele. In addition to simply going it along and figuring it out yourself with what is available right here on and the wider Internet in general.

Private One-on-One Lessons

PRIVATE LESSONS - Private lessons are available at our family music store, Funky Frets, 600 E. Philadelphia Ave., Boyertown, PA 19512 USA. These lessons are the tradition one-on-one approach where you sign up and show up each week, and with the customized lessons, you progress towards your goals.

One-on-One Video Lessons Using Skype of Facetime

SKYPE LESSONS - This is the closest to face to face private lessons as we use the Internet and a simple web camera built in t most computers, tablets and smartphones. There is not distance barrier, and all that is need is to schedule the lessons frequency and time. Skype and Apple FaceTime is the same as in-person lessons at Funky Frets.

Email Correspondence

EMAIL CORRESPONDENCE - This is a go at your pace, and I send you the custom lessons. This option can accommodate any schedule as the communications involve email, phone and video exchange. Lessons with me are an excellent way to have me identify the lessons that are available right here and guide you through the many available lessons.

Email correspondence lessons are a great option for people that can't commit to a schedule due to a job, family, etc..

For more information, you can reach me by email at: or by call me at 484-942-8040.

We can discuss your goals, current level, a schedule and the program that will be best suited to maximize your progress.

My Topsites List

My site, in one form or another has been on the web since 1995 and just keeps growing and growing. So there are lot of pages on this site to visit, with a lot of great information.

Curt Sheller and Curt Sheller Publications. A small (me, myself and I) independent, by choice, publishing company catering to the needs of musicians, guitar players and ukulele players worldwide. Offering the resources and information needed to develop as a musician. Curt Sheller Publications, created in 1995, has been on the web for over 15 years. I have over 40 years of playing experience and have been involved in private music education for the past 20 years.

Taking advantage of my jazz guitar skills, I began pursuing the potential of the ukulele. Researching the field, I saw very little material organized for the intermediate and advanced player. I have developed an international reputation as a ukulele expert having written over 30 books for ukulele and over 500 lessons.
