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’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!
“I signed up to Kates full ukulele course and have found Kate’s teaching style to be so completely enjoyable. Her videos are easy to follow with clear instructions but also super fun. I like that I can keep going back to them to practice over and over. I have also found that instead of sitting with my ukulele and just totally focusing on what I’m suppose to be doing I can sit and just enjoy playing it. Picking up my ukulele isn’t a chore it’s a joy. Thanks Kate. 😊.” Sallie, Karalee
