Welcome to my beginners' ukulele course for children, families and any new players! There are 12 lessons in this beginner's course and this summer is the perfect time to join! I'm adding weekly free live lessons that we will send you the link for. Join me live to ask questions, learn new bonus material and get tips and advice, or stream the videos as we add them after each live session. The new material will also be available to download for free - so let's start the SUMMER OF UKULELE!
You will be playing your first song from lesson number 1 with just one finger! The ukulele is perfect for little fingers, and with only 4 strings and a light-weight body to hold, it makes a great starter instrument as you can get great results fast.
Learn at your own pace, access the lessons wherever and whenever you like on any device. You can skip through them or follow the order. The sections (lessons) on this course will take you from complete non-player through to being able to strum and sing along to many well known songs and some of my original children's songs. You'll learn different chord shapes, how to change from one to the next, strumming rhythms and even how to pick a few easy tunes. You'll be singing round the campfire in no time!
This is a perfect way to learn an instrument with your child - makes a fun rainy day activity you can all enjoy.
I am a children's songwriter and experienced teacher, so the songs I have chosen are all child-friendly - we won't be learning Ring of Fire or random oldies here!

- How to hold, tune, strum and play chords - Animal Fair

Here's a lovely message I received this month:
"We just want to say Thank-you! ;)) ;)) 😉
We came across you on youtube when I was starting to teach myself and my 6 year old daughter ukulele, on one lockdown day, when we were feeling a bit adrift.
Then coincidentally, and almost at the same time, my daughters' grandad gave her a lovely ukulele of her own. Since then we have been listening to your songs on Spotify most days, and are now working our way through our first set of beginner lessons from the Go Kid Music Club, as well as learning to sign.
We are enjoying it so much, and it has given us some real focus and pleasure during these strange days 😷. My daughter practices most days without prompt and has already played her friends Happy Birthday!
Thanks again 😄"

I've been teaching ukulele to children and adults for over 10 years - in schools, community groups, at events and festivals. I train teachers who want to play ukulele at school and run workshops for music services, local authorities and businesses. I have now taken my lessons and filmed them so you can learn at your own pace, when and wherever you want to!
Come on - get your uke on!
