My name is Diane Nalini. I’m a jazz singer and songwriter, and I also teach jazz singing students. I started this site because I realized some of my students didn’t play an instrument and they felt it was preventing them from going deeper into the music. So let’s work together to change that. 

The ukulele is easy to get started with, it’s very portable, and it’s just plain fun! Together we’ll dive into jazz chords, learning repertoire, comping, vocal exercises using the uke, and more. You don’t have to be a jazz singer to benefit from this site. Anyone with an interest in learning to play jazz chords on the ukulele is very welcome! Just click on the “Lessons” tab at the top to get started.
