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!
