Individual lessons

By arrangement for adults and children.


"Tim's teaching really got us up to speed very quickly and to a point where we were able to play the basic chords and strum a tune.  At the end of the first term, I was really chuffed with how much we had learnt and how far advanced our playing had got.  The weekly lessons are varied and fun and as they are held above a pub, it's a really relaxed atmosphere.

The ukulele is a fantastic instrument for anybody to learn whether they have a lot of musical knowledge or not because it's just so much fun.”
