There aren't enough superlatives to adequately express what an amazing experience it is to learn to play an instrument with Wayne! Far beyond simply teaching the mechanics of making sound, from day one, he is teaching his students to be musicians and to truly feel the music. He blends the relaxed approach of living in the Island Style with a breadth of experience that comes from a lifelong commitment to his art. He has studied with great masters and willingly and joyfully shares his knowledge with anyone willing to learn. I extensively searched the San Francisco Bay area for a Slack Key teacher and was disappointed with the results. Wayne suggested lessons by Skype and it actually works! While I'd really rather "hang with Wayne" and learn from him in person on Maui, somehow, he is able to make the lessons equally as effective via Skype, despite the distance. Regardless of your level of musical expertise (or lack of) I assure you, Wayne has a lot to offer to you in experiencing a unique way of learning to play an instrument- and to relish the results.

I wanted my son to learn to play ukelele and had tried other teachers that weren't connecting with my him. I could tell after speaking with Wayne that this experience would be different and after watching a lesson, I wanted to learn to play the ukelele also. He has a gift for engaging children and teaching. I feel like learning to play the ukelele for me will help me to relax more deeply and will be a wonderful thing to share with my son. I highly recommend Wayne, best teacher you can find!

Wayne played his Ukulele for our little beach wedding. He is very talented and did a great job. We really appreciate his talent, patients and willingness to come to our wedding! We received allot of compliments from out guests regarding his music. We would highly recommend him for your event!

Wayne is a natural-born musician and teacher. In just 6 short weeks, he transformed my whole guitar-playing technique. He's gifted at simplifying complex ideas. He's a great listener, and a super-quick study at understanding exactly what the individual student needs to focus on. Plus his easy-going nature made every class a joy. Thanks to Wayne, I'm now so much more relaxed when I play. Best of all, I enjoy it more than ever. I'd recommend him to any student at any level. - Annie, Seattle

After loosing part of my left hand in a motorcycle accident, I thought my guitar playing days were over. I soon discovered that we are much more adaptable than we know. With determination, innovation, and the relaxed and insightful approach Wayne Perry uses in his teaching, I am steadily building the confidence and skill I need to overcome this disability. With Wayne’s help, I am beginning to once again develop the skills needed to do the thing I love so well. Mahalo Wayne for helping to bring music back into my life.

Years ago I read a book called 'The Inner Game of Tennis' by Timothy Gallwey. When Mr. Gallwey was teaching tennis, first he'd have the student try and hit the ball back and forth with him as many times as possible. Usually the beginning student could only do it about one or two times. Then the instructor would ask the student to notice their inner dialog when they missed the ball. It was often a series of self deprecating remarks. Next the instructor would ask the student to clear his mind and simply say "bounce hit, bounce hit". With that simple exercise the student would continue to hit the ball sometimes as many as 45 times without interruption. It was the "Zen" of tennis. Wayne Perry teaches music in much the same way. He helps you take the effort out of it and relax. He showed me that I didn't need to have sore fingers from pressing the strings so hard. Relax. He showed me how to find my own comfortable way to hold my instrument so that both arms and hands were free to play my instrument, with the emphasis being on the word "Play". He encourages one to have fun with it. One session with Wayne has made all the difference in the world for me and I highly recommend him. I told him he should write the book, 'The Tao of Ukulele'. Aloha, Andrea von Botefuhr

"Our experience with Wayne can be described as inspiring. Over the last 5 or 6 years, Wayne has taught all three of our children to play ukulele and guitar. Wayne takes an individual approach to each student and really connects at different levels to make each lesson fun and enjoyable. Each of our children continue to play both at school and at home and we feel blessed to have the gift of music in our household. Wayne has my 9 year old daughter singing and recording CD's , lots of fun and excitement for all. Thanks Wayne!" Brad & Kristina MacArthur
