Join the ukulele revolution and become a producer, not a consumer

Learn how to play the marvellous ukulele in just six weeks

DATES: Monday 10th November to Monday 15th December with a Christmas concert on Monday 19th December.

After a sell out September course Danny Wootton’s Ukulele for Beginners course is back and will cover basic chords, strumming and music theory.


Danny Wootton’s course will cover theory as well as practice. As well as learning contemporary pop songs, you will learn a bit of classical uke. The course will feature guest appearances from Idler Academy Head of Minstrelsey Michael Tyack, who will teach you simple medieval and Renaissance chord progressions and plucked melodies. You will of course also learn how to play well-known pop songs. The course will end with a party and a performance from the group.


Our ukulele courses are enormous fun and very satisfying. Your playing will advance far more quickly than if you were only self-taught.


Note: for those of you without ukuleles, we sell good models from £35 upwards. Please telephone us on 0207 221 5908 for more details.
