Learn to play Ukulele in 2020 – four week challenge with Kate B!

Are you ready to pick up an instrument and learn to play some music?

The exciting news is that I’ve recently entered world of online teaching!  It’s still early days for me but I’m loving it so far, and so are my students!   I’m super excited about the potential of supporting many people to learn to play an instrument, not just those who can make the time to get to a lesson in person.

My offer:

If you’ve always wanted to play Ukulele, this is a great place to start.  In your own time, in your own home, at your own pace, but with the support of me and each other!  There are PLENTY of courses out there which are free but if you get stuck, you’re on your own… The difference is here that I will be with you each step of the way.  We’ll have weekly pre recorded lessons you can take when it suits you and a group on Facebook to stay connected.  I’ll be dropping in a few times a week to check for any questions.  At the end of the module I’ll hold a live Q & A session so I can answer any further questions you might have or help with any challenges!

Perhaps you have:

  • Hesitated to get started with an instrument because you were told ‘we’re not musical’
  • Tried before and failed through lack of support
  • Or you’ve compared yourself to others and given up (I’ll never catch up to them!)
  • Or you’ve struggled to find the time to get to lessons?

“I’ve followed Kate as a muso for many years, and was keen to take advantage of her online uke course. I’ve been teaching myself & using a free app for awhile so I thought that while the introductory course might be a little below my current skills, the discipline of enrolling in lessons would be helpful.
Well, wasn’t I in for a treat?! Not only is this talented musician an excellent teacher, but the lessons were instructive, helpful, supportive and HEAPS of fun! AND you get to repeat them in your own time – very handy for island strumming, which I still haven’t mastered! Thanks Kate, for the fun learning! I really enjoyed it and my skills have improved significantly, even from where I was.”  Jennifer, Annerley

Far too many people think that ‘you are a musician’ and ‘I am not’… give me some time and you can be too!   I know the steps needed for you to learn to play an instrument and sing along and SOUND GOOD!   I honestly believe that anyone with the desire to play an instrument can learn. Patience, commitment, fun and time are the key ingredients to success!

Not only will I be addressing the mechanics of holding the instrument, tuning, playing chords & keeping time, but we’ll also be look at the psychology of learning and the unhelpful thinking which can distract us from our goal!

“I thoroughly enjoyed Kate’s Learn to Play the Ukelele course.  The lessons are well put together with enough content to be interesting and fun but not so much as to be overwhelming.  Nice balance 🙂  The feeling of ‘I’m actually getting better at this!” had me enthusiastically returning for each new lesson.  Definitely a sense of achievement!”  Fay, Camp Mountain

I’ll be taking you through strumming, reading chord charts, different rhythms & time signatures, finger picking and more.  We’ll be learning a bunch of different songs from different genre’s including folks, blues, reggae, pop & chanting styles.  Some will be covers and some of my original songs!

We’ll be travelling together and going slow and steady, building confidence as we go … so we’re able to ensure your success!  Just one little bite at a time.   Your time commitment will be just one hour a week!  That’s a 15-20 minute lesson, and only 5 mins of practice a day!

I am not formally trained and I’m only just learning to read music but my strength is years of playing live with lots of different people in a multitude of instruments… Guitar, Uke, Harp, Percussion & Voice.  I don’t play solos or scales… not my specialty!   But for me these things were never needed to get to where I am now.  If you’d like to learn these things, I can refer you to someone who can help when we’re done.  I’ll get you playing and singing around a campfire though!

The details:

We kick off for the second round on April 1st (no joke!).

You have the opportunity to sign up for a four week ‘Getting Started‘ online course on learning to play the Ukulele.  This will lead into two other modules, ‘Getting Comfey‘ & ‘Getting Confident‘!

The first course will be offered at a discounted rate of $97 for four weeks.  If you’re ready to commit to your goal of learning to play and you sign up for all three modules,  you’ll save 30%!  That’s 16 week course of 3 modules = 4 week intro + 6 + 6 weeks to get you well underway towards being a confident player!   

The full price is $587 but I’m offering $397 for the entire course AND I’ll gift you a digital copy of my songbook worth $15 which has chord charts for all the songs on both my albums.  This discount is available for those committing up front for the full 16 weeks.  Subsequent modules (ie if you want to keep going after 4 weeks) will be will be full price (still great value at $37 per lesson!).

  • Module 1 – 4 weeks – discounted = $97 – (full price – $147)

I’m limiting each intake to just 20 participants so I can keep track of your progress! 

If you’ve been playing for a while now, I’d love to chat to you before you book.  You might not need all the content of the beginners course BUT i’d like you to run through it anyway so that we’re all on the same page for subsequent modules and you haven’t missed anything important in the foundation.   (Depending on where you are with your playing this may mean a discount!)

When you’re ready to commit, select the course you’d like to take below and come on in!

See you online soon!
