This six week course is for those intrepid ukulele adventurers who have graduated from Beginners Ukulele and beyond (or those who have acquired similar ukulele skills elsewhere). It’s also perfect for guitar players who would like to learn the uke too. Rest assured that your teacher Danny will find parts for you to play which are commensurate with your level of skill. If you would like to check you are at the correct level for this course then please email

Ukulele Ensemble focuses on playing together as a band. You will also learn a bit about arranging music and song writing.

We will concentrate on improving playing as a group. We’ll focus on playing different parts and different rhythms and we’ll introduce some new strums. We will work on learning to play songs from memory rather than relying on sheets. The course will end with a group performance and party.

Here is a little  video of the last ensemble class performing at the end of term party with Arthur Jeffes of Penguin Cafe, to give you a bit of a flavour of what to expect:

*Please note you will need your own ukulele to attend this course. Please do purchase one in advance. We recommend Markala as a good entry level uke, or anything by KALA*
