I am currently teaching ukelele at Bold Park Community School (ages 6-12), but this ad is for private lessons.
I am also teaching my mum.. the kids are better though..!
Ukelele is a really fun, relatively easy, portable and charming instrument to learn and play.
It can be a great way to introduce younger kids to a musical instrument as its so small, their little fingers can usually command enough chords to play a song and feel good about it. This last part is important because if its too hard, they're not going to stay interested for very long..!
For musically minded adults and people that are looking to broaden their instrumentation, you will probably only need a few lessons with me before you'll know enough to fly on your own..
For adults that have never played an instrument before, it's a great place to start especially if the overall goal is eventually learn guitar.
The great thing is that you can translate nearly any song onto the uke, so its a perfect and portable companion for camps and sing along situations.. some good ones I've figured out include:
I'm Only Sleeping - The Beatles
Harry Potter Theme
Riptide - Vance Joy
Stairway To Heaven
Get Lucky - Daft Punk
Fly Me To The Moon - Frank Sinatra
Imagine - John Lennon
Breathe - Pink Floyd
the list goes on..!
Feel free to get in touch via txt msg, phone call or email if you wish to enquire further and organise a lesson. Lessons can be done at my home studio in Mt Lawley or I can drive to you.
Group lessons can be arranged as well.
