Have you always wanted to learn an instrument but feel daunted at the prospect?

Why not learn to play  the ukulele?

To find out why the ukulele is such a great instrument to learn, check out my blog post Five Compelling Reasons Why You Should Learn To Play The Ukulele.

 I run online classes for adults where the emphasis is on having fun while learning the basics on ukulele. I have 3 class levels from absolute beginners to intermediate.

How does it work?

Each week, you get sent an email first thing on Monday morning with your class video.  You will also get links to chord sheets and audio recordings you can play along with while you are learning.  

You will be invited to be part of a whatsapp group where members can ask questions and 

post videos of their progress and get feedback videos from me.   We will also have 4 live 40 minute zoom calls spread out over the course where you can ask questions and we will practise the songs together.

Beginner’s Plus Home Study Ukulele Course

This is a 12 week course aimed at those who have completed the beginners course or have played the ukulele previously and know some basic chords and can already play a few songs.  We build on the skills we have already acquired  and learn some new chords and strums.

Intermediate Class

This is for players who are comfortable with most common chords and strums.  We meet monthly on zoom.

How does it Work?

On the first Monday of the month, you will receive an email with a video tutorial teaching you a new song..  You will also get links to chord sheets and audio recordings you can play along with while you are learning.  The following week you will get a video tutorial for a song we have covered previously.  On the third Monday of the month at 8pm we meet on zoom for a Q&A and sing along.  If you can’t make it along live, you will have access to the replay.

You will also be invited to be part of a WhatsApp group where members can ask questions and post videos of their progress and get feedback videos from me.

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

Marie Walsh

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

Brid O’Mahony

Really enjoyed the social aspect that went along with learning a new instrument.  Small group was great & really supportive.

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