Great teacher, if anyone can teach me how to play the Uke they deserve a special mention as I was told as a child that I could not be taught guitar due to being left handed. Matt has totally knocked that theory out of the park by teaching me how to play as a right handed player. I never believed I would ever play an instrument but am now loving playing my Uke and champing at the bit for more lessons. Thankyou The Awesome Ukelele Academy for helping me achieve something on my bucket list

I think the most important part of learning something new is the teacher then the way you are taught Matt is an excellent tutor he's patient and is happy to answer the same questions asked 10 times over and I would highly recommend this ukulele accelerator course for quick and slow learners (like myself)
Really enjoyed this and looking forward to the next one

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.
