Ukulele Lessons

Yes it’s official. The Ukulele is cool!

Endorsed by such luminaries as Pearl Jam’s frontman Eddie Vedder and a recent performance by Coldplay, the Ukulele has shaken off it’s “novelty” status and become popular to a whole new generation of musicians and performers. With a repertoire stretching from Hawaiian traditional songs through swing jazz and 60’s standards to modern classics, the instrument has been taken up by singer songwriters and modern bands such as Train and Noah and the Whale. You can even learn AC/DC for Ukulele!

As well as being easily playable and offering the ability to play a few songs in a short time, in the hands of a great musician like Jake Shimabukuro, the Ukulele’s versatility ranges from intimate charm to dazzling showmanship. What is without doubt is that the Ukulele crowd are a fun bunch and it will always make you smile!
