A lesson with Beau Cody
" I am currently recording and working on a new music project. I have so much to share and to raise money for the recording, I'm offering music lessons and these aren't regular lessons."
LEARN THE GUITAR
UKULELE (recommended starting instrument. You can create a lot of beautiful music with an ukulele, its cheap to buy and it is an easy instrument to start learning on)
SINGING (singing lessons to improve and get more control of your voice)
Beau Cody has a Bachelors Degree in Music Business, studied music for over 15 years, and has been performing in venues for over 13 years and has a lot of experience to share. He started teaching music lessons in College and taught students from the youngest, a little 4 year old girl playing the ukulele, to a 60 year old. Beau Cody really believes that anyone can learn how to play a musical instrument.
These aren't your regular music lessons. Here is how it works.
For Beginner Students:
" I take a very personalized approach. First we dig into the music you like, your favorite songs and musicians. Then I create lessons around that. I am teaching chords, some theory and structure all while you are learning your favorite songs. I'm am very patient and can usually have students playing a song by the end of their very first lesson.
I also believe that consistency is one of the key ingredients to improving at an instrument. Your favorite musician was once a beginner. The only difference between them and you is the time they put into the craft. I will keep you on track and have a method to help you learn between lessons and quicken your learning."
For Advanced Students:
" After learning a bunch of your favorite music, we add a new layer. Now, we start creating music. With little exercises like writing a new verse to your favorite song, or the free writing dive, I will help you open up your music and start creating.
We can also start diving into more advanced topics like soloing, expressive ways to instantly improve your playing, music arranging and diving into other instruments. I have a lot of knowledge to share and study music on a daily. I know that I can help your musical journey."

Music Lessons (Guitar / Ukulele / Bass / Voice)
HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU (OR YOUR CHILD) IS READY TO START LESSONS?
It's time. You are ready. Book two to three lessons to see if it's really something you really like. Imagine being able to play your favorite songs! It can happen.
WHAT DO YOU THINK THE HARDEST THING ABOUT MASTERING AN INSTRUMENT IS?
Everyone starts music as a beginner. Slash, Jimi Hendrix, John Mayer were all once beginners at the guitar. The only difference between them and you in the hours of work they put into their instrument. Ed Sheeran once said that his success in songwriting is because he wrote loads and loads of bad songs before the good ones started coming out.
I think the hardest part of mastering an instrument is stayed motivated and consistency. I can help you. With fun exercises and guidance, I keep the experience of learning fun and engaging. Personalized lessons also help you learn at a faster level.
DID YOU EVER HAVE A TEACHER THAT INSPIRED YOU TO GO INTO MUSIC? HOW DID THEY INSPIRE YOU?
In my first year of high school, my mom found out about this performance ensemble class called Ohana O Mele. This was an intermediate musican class who traveled around the state to perform at elementary schools, middle schools, hotels and private events. I auditioned for the class and got accepted.
My instructors name was Mr. Loo and for the next four years, I learned a lot about music. He taught us songs but told us to do it differently. We formed little groups in class, collaborated and created our own versions of the songs. This class is what sparked my love for performing. I started my band Local Uprising from this class.
BEAU CODY, WHAT MADE YOU START LEARNING DIFFERENT INSTRUMENTS?
I think it was curiosity and musical journey that made me decide to learn other instruments. I learned the ukulele at the age of 8. After learning a bunch of songs on the ukulele, I wanted to see what could be done with more strings, so I started diving into the guitar. I always loved singing, so I started taking vocal lessons and started studying techniques to improve my tone and expression. In high school, I started going to live shows and saw the power and simplicity of the bass. Then I started my first band called Local Uprising and got into songwriting and music arranging. In college, I started diving into rhythm and picked up drumsticks. I want to be that guidance that I didn't have and I want to help you on this musical journey.
