It's always the right time to learn to play!

On our fun ukulele courses, using our proven method, we have taught over 2000 people to play their first song.

We have taught kids and we have taught 80-year olds.

We have taught people  to play the ukulele who have been told they had no musical talent.

They can now all play songs on the ukulele and have had fun learning!
A proven, simple and fun process that will really get you learning the ukulele, no matter your age, or how much musical ability you think you have.

We concentrate on the five fundamentals that will get you playing quickly and sounding great -  tuning, strumming, learning chords, chord changes, and having fun practising.

“ I was a session musician, touring and recording throughout my 20’s and then I became a music
teacher at my kids school. I know how much fun playing an instrument can be. This is why
I’ve created The Awesome Ukulele Academy to help everyone achieve their dreams of being able to perform the songs they love…and, of course, to save the world!”

Joining the academy and learning to play has been so much fun. Smashing ‘community’ feel, really friendly and supportive. Seeing progress in myself which is great. No matter how awful my playing sounds, it just makes me smile such a diversion from the stresses of life. I pick up my uke and everything feels wonderful and tensions just lift. I joined after the death of my father - it’s simply been my salvation. Many of the songs have been ones he loved and this in itself has helped me with my grief. I can’t thank you enough.

My twin brother has played the guitar for years and been in orchestra, sang in a choir but I have never been musical at all, but thought I would give this a go and well it has been fantastic, really enjoyable and very well set out, with fantastic people giving support, I can now play a ukulele, yes still got a long way to go but wouldn't be anywhere near where I am without this group.

I have had previous unsuccessful attempts at learning to play an instrument. The accelerator is fast paced and there is a lot to learn, but if you don't have as much time as others you can always go back, recap and consolidate your learning. The most important lesson Matt gives you ... you CAN do it. I have since joined my local Ukulele club and I am loving it. Thanks Matt for making learning fun and making us aware that whatever our age and experience we can still achieve and progress.
