Have you always wanted to play an instrument?

The ukulele is great for beginners  and you don’t need any musical experience.

Why is it so great? Check out my blog post Five Compelling Reasons Why You Should Learn To Play The Ukulele.

Ukulele Time For Beginners!

I teach  adults to play the ukulele through my  ‘Ukulele Time’ online courses, which are suitable for absolute beginners to intermediate players.

You learn  to play ukulele at your own pace and at the same time get support when you need it.  You learn through a mix of weekly video tutorials and  play along audio recordings.  I am happy to answer of your questions via email and whatsapp

I'm a Beginner

You will learn the basics, step-by-step with my ‘Ukulele Time for Beginners’ 12 week course.  The emphasis on playing for fun!

We start with teaching you how to hold your ukulele, how to tune and strum it.  You will learn the most useful easy chords and a handful of songs.

How does it work?

Every Monday morning you will get an email with a link to your class video.  You will also get links to chord sheets and audio recordings you can play along with while you are learning.  

We will have 2 Q&A practise sessions in January.  These 45 minute classes will be held on zoom at 7pm on Monday 23rd & 30th January, where you can ask questions and we will practise the songs together. 

I already play ukulele

I have an intermediate level for players who are comfortable with most common chords and strums.  This includes  students who’ve completed the both beginners courses. 

Once you complete the Beginners Course there is a Beginners Plus Course.  This is another 12 week course where we build on the skills you have learnt and start to play longer songs and get comfortable with new strums.  

I have an intermediate level for players who are comfortable with most common chords and strums.  This includes  students who’ve completed both beginners courses. 

At intermediate level, we learn a new song every month.  This pace is designed to keep you playing in the long run and make steady progress without a huge time commitment on your part. 

As before you get a video tutorial for each song, song sheets and play along audios.

Please get in touch if you are interested in Beginners Plus or Intermediate level ukulele.

What my students have said about my Ukulele classes:

Claire many thanks for helping me reach this stage.  I am delighted to be able to pick up my ukulele and feel confident to play the songs I’ve learned. It’s a great feeling.  I was very happy with your classes . You were always there for us if we needed you. You gave us personal tuition.  Claire to be at this stage is brilliant and was always my ambition. I am looking forward to continuing with the classes

Very relaxed environment for me to learn as a real beginner.  Music recordings on dropbox helped me to learn the tune & strum timing.

Claire is a brilliant teacher and the pace is perfect and sending the recordings on dropbox is a great way of practising.
