Ready to learn the happiest instrument on the planet???

You're in the right place.


Over the past 11 years, we have developed and designed a clear and structured learning pathway to help you progress on your ukulele journey. This includes a variety of short beginner and intermediate level courses as well as our regular ukulele ensemble (The Lightly Strung Orchestra) to continue your development once you have gained some playing experience.


We hope that playing your ukulele brings you hours of endless fun, nurtures your spirit and opens up a whole new world of social connections with ukesters in like-minded musical communities. Join us and experience the "happiness factor" that comes with playing the ukulele - it's UKE-tastic - and we hope it inspires you to MAKE MUSIC FOR LIFE!

What Our Students Say

"A magical experience being part of the wonderful LSO and the leadership, friendship and exceptional teaching of Janine and Jenny. Such a supportive group - might be motley but where else would this range of ages and at times abilities exist to work towards a single goal but in doing so enrich each other’s lives."

Kim, LSO member since 2017
