Want to learn how to play the ukulele in less than an hour? Come and join me virtually for a fun and musically-inspired class, where you'll learn just how easy it is to play the ukulele!

During this class, which is designed for beginners, you will master everything you need to know about playing the ukulele. You will learn how to play the ukulele chords for beginners, strum patterns (and even some flamenco!) to play a song, including fingerpicking, melodies, soloing and improvising as well. Plus, you can even sing-along!

You will also learn how to read chord charts, TAB music and play the C Major scale. Once we've got the basics covered, my ‘forte’ is discovering and bringing out your personal ukulele style.

Any ukulele is fine for the class, and I will also show you a variety of ukulele shapes and sizes and suggest the right size for you.

At the end of the class, you'll be able to confidently play all the basic ukulele chords for beginners and can continue learning ukulele songs at home!

I'll also send you a booklet of everything we cover in class for you to study and practice at home - so you don't need to take notes while during the session - just relax and enjoy learning and having fun!


Knowledge Required

I’m a bestselling author, who has published a few books on topics ranging from salsa dancing to Brasilian music & percussion to life enrichment & autism. I’ve also taught college classes on writing and publishing. In addition, I play music and teach ukulele, and body percussion as well...

I love helping people follow their dreams to write (and publish) their own books, and am looking forward to working with you to achieve your literary goals.

This was such a fun class! I am not particularly musical, though I thought it would be pretty cool to be able to learn how to play a song on the ukulele. Dan was patient and explained step by step how to play the different notes, he gave useful tips and showed some fun styling on how you can add your own flavour to any song. The class was playful and I learned to play a song. I look forward to playing some more at home and adding my own flavour :) Thanks Dan!

I had a great time in my Ukulele class with Dan! As an absolute beginner, I was a bit nervous beforehand but Dan was really positive and encouraging and I had a great time! I just wish it was longer as the hour went very quickly!

When it comes to playing an instrument, I’m an absolute beginner. So I was a little nervous to try this out. But Dan was a fantastic teacher who made me feel at ease, and by the end of the lesson I could actually strum a song! What I liked about this class is that Dan teaches the basics, but also expanded my idea of what ukulele playing can be. I didn’t know there were so many styles of playing, and now I’m excited to experiment and find my own style. This class is a lot of fun, and I highly recommend it if you’ve been thinking of learning to play a ukulele, or just simply learning a new instrument as it’s much easier than you think!
