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!”

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.

Matt is very accessible as a teacher, fun, focused and so encouraging. He leaves no one behind! I am really looking forward to learning even more ukulele having got into the practice of daily playing and confidence that nothing ukulele is beyond my reach. Thank you, Matt.

Thank you so much, I've learnt so much during this course and I think that this is the first class in my life I've really enjoyed and felt no pressure from, so I have been able to really engage well, and the community support has been amazing and lovely, I've felt so supported, able to ask questions, and have gone from knowing very little about ukulele (despite trying to teach myself with a book previously and getting nowhere) to feeling like I've got this and able to play quite a few songs and seeing myself progress and knowing how to learn!
