ABOUT LEARN TO UKE & WELCOME

We are Learn To Uke! We offer passionate, fun-loving, easy-going ukulele lessons – we want you to have a blast with your uke!

We offer courses in different formats – so we hope you’ll find one to suit your lifestyle.

Like everyone in 2020, we were forced to rethink how we do things, so our classes went online for the first time. It worked so well, I can’t believe we didn’t do it years ago. You can learn to play the ukulele at your own pace, with all the support and camaraderie you’ll need to keep at it.

Hello! I'm Lorraine.
I set up Learn to Uke.
Here's a bit about me:

LORRAINE BOW

I founded Learn To Uke because I wanted to bring the joy of playing the ukulele to everyone.

Since 2009, I‘ve successfully taught thousands of people to play the ukulele, including TV’s Ant & Dec. I can teach you, too.

I was taught to play the ukulele by Hester & George from the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain in 2007. Prior to that, I had only played ‘London’s Burning‘, badly on the recorder at school. So, I remember how it feels being unable to play an instrument – this is what makes me a patient teacher. I‘ll walk you through each step of learning to play the uke.

After having played for only a few years, I retrained to teach music. I hope you’ll be inspired to enjoy it as much as I do. You’ll be playing (or improving on) the ukulele within an hour – even with no prior musical experience. It is a great way to unwind, and I aim to be as far removed from traditional musical teaching as possible. Forget the drudge of slowly picking through ‘Twinkle Twinkle’ – you’ll be strumming and singing lots of well-known, popular songs in no time!

Professional memberships: Musician’s Union, National Association of Music Educators.

DON'T TAKE MY WORD FOR IT...

Some people who have Learned To Uke with us:

CHRISTOPER C.

“I’ve learned more in 3-4 lessons here than I did in 10 lessons at another London course. Thank you so much!”

HONORATA H.

“Pure escapism. If you thought you could never play an instrument, think again. Don’t miss it.”

ANT & DEC

Thanks for getting us show ready for the #SaturdayNightTakeaway finale. D
