The ukulele is a fantastic instrument! Perfect if you are just getting started or if your hands are a little smaller. Being a good ukulele player is all about playing chords cleanly and being confident at playing rhythms. In no time at all you will be playing your favourite songs.
We will get you playing riffs from songs like Seven Nation Army and Smoke on the Water, in no time at all.
Additionally once you're comfortable we will focus looking chords and rhythms involved in songs by Jake Bugg, Ed Sheeran, Hozier, Haim and more!

Lessons are flexible to the student. If you need the same day each week or need to change it up, it's no problem! We can work out a timetable that fits around you and your busy lifestyle.
WHAT TO BRING
Please bring your own ukulele guitar and a plectrum. It's always good for you to have your own instrument that you are comfortable with and that you can practice on when you go home. If you need advice about buying your first ukulele, don't hesitate in getting in touch!
