Ukelele Tuition

Due to the increasing popularity of the ukelele I am pleased to announce that I now offer tuition in the instrument.

Topics covered include:

  • Chords and rhythm playing
  • Scales
  • Arpeggios
  • Improvisation and lead playing
  • Understanding chord symbols, tablature and standard notation
  • Reading rhythms
  • Knowledge of the instrument
  • Fretboard knowledge
  • Aural abilities (playing by ear)
  • Songwriting and composition (optional)

I teach the RGT grade syllabus’ for any student wishing to take examinations.

I incorporate various techniques in my teaching and in addition to using conventional methods; I also encourage pupils to develop their aural awareness through the structured learning of their own preferred music. Many of my students now play in groups, and explore the capabilities of their instrument, by experimenting and being creative. All these learning strategies have proven effective in paving the way towards greater expression and aesthetic response in practice and performance.

I love teaching, and derive a great deal of satisfaction from seeing a student develop as a musician. I believe music is the most universal and communicative art form. To be actively involved in it opens up many avenues, both artistically and socially.
