Easy, silly, and effective introduction to playing the ukulele for kids and kids at heart!
Want to play the ukulele? Now's your chance! Just watch this series of videos. You'll join Ulani, your fellow total beginner student, as she takes lessons from Allie Jean. You will also get song sheets, extra tips, encouragement/accountability, and direct access to Allie Jean by taking this course.
Allie Jean is a teacher, musician, and mom. She has taught rhythm guitar, clawhammer banjo, ukulele, piano, mandolin, fiddle, harmonica, flatfoot dancing, and harmony singing in camps, workshops, and private lessons for over a decade. Before becoming a professional musician, Allie taught 7th grade Language Arts for seven years. She has what it takes to make learning fun!
Allie has managed and performed in musical groups since high school. Her projects have included The Whipstitch Sallies (bluegrass/folk/songwriter), Frank & Allie Lee (old time/folk), and The Freight Hoppers (old time). Performing with these groups gave her the opportunity to travel all over Indiana as well as Hawaii, California, Arizona, Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, the UP, the Southeast, Pennsylvania, and even France! She has also taught bluegrass jamming with the Wernick Method. At the Rockygrass Academy band competition in 2016, her band took first place! Treat A Stranger Right, an album that she released with Frank in 2020, was #1 on the folk radio chart for two months.
Because of the pandemic and becoming a mom, Allie is turning her energy to teaching music online. In her spare time, she enjoys rewatching The Office, walking and running, spending time with her family, raising awareness for her son's rare disease, and making TikTok videos (follow along! @danielcarsonlee and @musicwithallie).
