So how do we teach?
Our main focus on ukulele teaching is developing musicality. We believe by learning technique and developing practical skills and a good foundation by increasing your ability to hear the pulse, tempo's, and rhythm of the music you want to play automatically makes you a better player.
What happens when you come for your first lesson?
We sit you down and chat about where you want to go with your ukulele playing - what style of music you want to play and we access where you currently are. We then start with checking your foundation - how you hold the uke, how you strum etc. Then we teach "must know" basics then build a pathway to your goal.
Rather than just giving you strums and a few chords to play we develop your ability to find your own so you can self-develop.
Some of the things we focus on in our lessons are
Left & right hand development
Dynamics - bringing more shape, colour and texture to your playing
Learning feel and groove
Learning to break free from the first 3 frets - chord inversions
Timing and time signatures - knowing count ins and where the one is in any moment of your playing.
Learning to find more accurate strum patterns for the songs you play
