Our 4-week group absolute beginners ukulele course is a great way to learn a new skill, meet new people and have fun. It’s structured, fun and fast-paced. With a maximum of 12 people in a class, you’ll gain the skills and get enough instructor feedback so you’ll be able to join in at a social ukulele jam night.
You’ll need to complete the current week’s tutorials, songs, and set some time aside each day to practice them on your own. Then, you can choose to either submit videos to get feedback on specific sections on any of that week’s songs (up to 1-minute per song), or you can join a group class (if your timezone permits) to ask questions, get help if you need it and play through the songs you’ve learned. Ideally, you’ll have started at least 4 days prior to the group class. The group class times are here. If you need to, you can repeat once more, in the 6-months after booking. This isn’t a one and done option, you will be supported as it’s important to get you going.
In week 1 you’ll learn to tune, hold, strum the ukulele and play 3 songs. In each subsequent week, you’ll learn 3 more songs, chords and strumming patterns to build new skills on the last, so please commit to the 4-weeks and allocate time to practice so you see quick results. If you put some time in on your own ukulele in between the classes, you’ll get an awful lot out of these 4 weeks as we’ll provide you with all the resources you’ll need. All you need is yourself, a ukulele and practice/play through that week’s songs for at least 10 mins per day between classes. Does that sound good? Then we look forward to getting you strumming!
