At the moment, I don’t teach children, but I may consider running some classes in the future if there is sufficient demand.
If you’re looking for an immediate solution, here it is:
You should come along to learn how to play the ukulele yourself and teach your child(ren). You’ll play your first song in an hour, even with no prior musical experience. We teach adults, in groups, after work in the evenings. It’s masses of fun, so you’ll get out of the house and meet other adults. You’re likely to make a few friends and you will pick up and play a popular song on the ukulele within an hour. The knowledge that you gain in that first hour can last for about 4-5 hours of lessons with your child. This will be a bonus to your family as this time you spend with your child will be constructive and fun – you’ll be spending quality time together, you’ll be singing and playing. It’s scientifically proven that you like people when you sing and make music together, so it’s a great way to get together with your family.
When you’ve learned how to play the ukulele, you can grab Lorraine’s (and Alex’s) tutorial book for children, Ukulele Basics, and teach your child(ren) using the repertoire and resources in it. There’s a retro CD Rom that will help you to pass on your skills, whether you are a parent or a teacher looking to teach ukulele to children at school.
We hope to see you at one of our 4-week ukulele courses very soon, and we hope this will be a valuable investment, 8 hours of your time with us, then the time you spend with your child using Ukulele Basics.
