Acoustic Guitar or Ukulele Building Workshop


Acoustic Guitar – Ukulele Building Workshop

Experience the excitement of building your own guitar or ukulele! Our workshop offers guidance and best-in-class materials to help you craft a personalized instrument with exquisite sound quality. Join us now and create the instrument of your dreams!

This is a one-on-one instructional course on how to build your own instrument from start to finish. We won’t be building from a kit, but from milled lumber that you will turn into a beautiful, handcrafted instrument!

Building an instrument can typically take about 200 hours, so this course is designed for each individual. Some of my students come in once a week, a couple times a month, or reserve entire week slots. Everyone is different and learns at their own pace, so I am very flexible in that regard. Contact me for more information!
