Join our 4 week intensive Beginner Ukulele Course and learn skills and techniques that will enable you to play hundreds of songs and provide you with the confidence to continue your progress by yourself or with others.
Our Beginner Ukulele Course is an intensive 4 week program designed to kick start the ukulele journey for those that have never played the ukulele before or have limited experience.
In our experience, many "self-taught" students who have been playing for years often start at this level as they haven't spent a lot of time learning how to play with correct technique which affects the quality of sound produced.
You do not need to be able to read music to attend the Beginner Course. You will learn a little bit of music theory on this course which will be assumed knowledge for higher level courses.
We discover all the important parts of the ukulele and how to tune your uke as well as:
How to play in the "sweet spot" with correct playing technique that maximises quality sound production
An introduction to the musical alphabet and basic chord vocabulary
A fundamental grounding in basic chords and common chord progressions
How to read simple chord charts and song sheets and where to obtain song material of interest to you
Different strumming techniques
An introduction to melody playing and TAB notation
A repertoire of popular songs from different musical genres
The 4 week Beginner Course fee is $150.
This cost includes 4 x 90 minute lessons ($30 each) plus all course materials including a Course Workbook and practice recordings.
There are no refunds or makeup classes for missed lessons. If there are exceptional circumstances whereby a participant is unable to attend the course for any reason, this situation can be discussed with the teacher and arrangements agreed upon.
Once a course has started, you are not entitled to a refund simply because you changed your mind. If you postpone your enrolment to a future course within 5 days of the start date, or after you have commenced a course, you will incur a $20 administration fee.
2020 was definitely a tough year for music teachers! Many schools were forced to close due to venue closures and instead run their entire operations online. Zoom lessons didn't suit everyone and our offerings were significantly reduced in 2020.
However, given the recent easing of restrictions, we are starting to dip our toes back into the face-to-face teaching! This is exciting news for us.
We will start to roll out our regular ensembles from May 2021 and we hope to be able offer public course dates from Term 3 onwards.
Stay tuned and thanks for your patience!
"We had so much fun learning to play our ukes - it was such a shame it had to end after only 4 weeks! I had the BEST time and I am looking forward to coming back for a follow up course. You were a great teacher to be able to impart all that information in such a short time."
Trisha, Beginner Uke Student
"I thoroughly enjoyed the Beginner Ukulele Course and would recommend it to anyone. The ukulele is a relatively easy instrument to learn and you can actually sound quite good after just a few weeks! Playing along with music and the other students was lots of fun and sounded great!"
Lyn, Beginner Uke Student
