Ukulele Lessons for Beginners - ON HOLD!
The 4 Week Beginner Ukulele Course
If you have never played a ukulele before, or have very limited experience, the 4 week Beginner's Course is a great way to kick-start your journey.
Absolutely no musical background or experience is necessary. However, it is essential you have an ukulele for the duration of the course.
What you can expect to learn:
We discover the different types and sizes of uke available, find the "best fit" for you, and become familiar with all the important parts of the ukulele and how to tune your uke
How to play in the "sweet spot" with correct playing technique that maximises quality sound production
A fundamental grounding in basic chords (about 20 open & bar 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 & finger picking techniques
A repertoire of at least 20 popular songs from different musical genres
At the end of the course you will have the skills to play hundreds of songs and be well placed to continue your progress by yourself or with others.

"I absolutely loved these classes, plenty of fun energy, upbeat, a great pace and kept me engaged along the whole way. I was amazed how quickly I managed to pick up the concepts quickly. I've virtually had no musical experience prior so was a bit apprehensive that I may not be able to keep up."
Pam, Beginner Uke Course graduate
"I now feel more confident with chord changes and strumming. The course was very enjoyable, because you made it fun. There was no pressure, but it was still stimulating and challenging. You have excellent organisational and interpersonal skills. I also enjoyed the social aspect, meeting new people. I think I am now ready to go on to Stage 2."
Brian, Beginner Uke Course graduate
"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 Course graduate
