The Ukulele

Course Outline

This ukulele course is designed to take students who previously have had little or no exposure to playing the instrument, and give them the ability and confidence to play simple tunes and the knowledge and skills to continue their learning path by themselves.

Learn how to play simple tunes as you explore the history of the ukulele, musical genres common to the ukulele and various styles of playing.

  • The history and background to the ukulele
  • The various types and sounds of ukuleles

Course testimonials:

  • I really enjoyed the course and learned a lot.
  • Brenton White was the ukulele instructor. He came fully prepared every lesson and with plenty of suitable handouts. He was most encouraging and patient as we struggled along. I learnt a lot from him and feel inspired to persevere with learning this instrument more fully in the future.
  • I enjoyed having the opportunity to share music with a teacher that obviously loves teaching.
