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.

Ukulele Retreats

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

Thoroughly enjoyed the class. Learnt a lot of chords & different strums.  Had fun!

Lynn Barry

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.
