Course testimonials:

  • As a fairly newcomer to the ukulele I was impressed with the range of material and presentation, with printouts of sheet music and teaching re same. Realised that sitting nearer teacher to see more clearly chord playing / positioning of fingers essential. Mix of easier tunes with fewer chords, with more advanced tunes was stimulating. Showed possibilities and benefit of continued practise, to progress. Encouragement to join a group, and the fun benefits of same was stimulating. Met some nice fellow students as well. 1 1/2 hours lesson would be good, as flew quite fast. Overall a good worthwhile experience. Sue Harada
