My Mission

Enjoy Playing

Ukulele should always be enjoyed and I help maintain this by providing informative yet enjoyable lessons. Enjoying what you learn is always the key to making progress and from experience, happy students who enjoy their lessons are always the ones who make the most progress. My lessons are easy to follow and will be taken at a pace that works for you and that suits you. I like to make sure we learn via the music and styles that you are interested in, this way we learn via music that you are familiar with and therefor, you know what the end product should sound like.

I allow my students to learn about the styles and genres that they enjoy listening to in their spare time. This is essential for making great progress and as I mentioned earlier, means that you know what the end product should sound like. If you would prefer me to make suggestions as to what we should learn, I'm more than happy to. I think it's important we make a learning direction that works for both of us.

My Lessons

Ages 6+

I teach both adults and young learners but recommend learning from ages 6 and above. Ukulele is an instrument that is both easy to understand and enjoyable. I would always recommend it to students of all ages. It's never to early or too late to start learning and the size of the instrument makes it a lot easier for children to understand than they would the guitar.

Ukulele is a great instrument for young learners who want an introduction to music before being able to move onto guitar. I always promote it as a great bridging instrument that you can learn first whilst gaining useful musical knowledge that can be used in other ways. Obviously, I believe that ukulele is a great way to move onto guitar because they are similar, but it's also a great instrument that can help you on the way to learning many other types of musical instruments.

More About My Lessons

Alongside teaching, I have been an actively gigging musician both in the UK and overseas. I have played bass for Princess Cruises and worked as a resident guitar vocalist for TUI in Crete, and I have played countless weddings, corporate gigs, bars, restaurants, music festivals and events.

My performance experience allows me to help students gain confidence in their ability level and playing standard. I can also help you prepare for performances or graded exams.

I feel it's very important to tailor my teaching to each student, dependent on their ultimate goals and desired outcomes for learning an instrument. I also strongly believe that it's important for my students to enjoy their lessons and get something out of it every week.
