Lessons are taught in a fun and practical way and you will learn chords, strumming patterns, melody playing, with a variety of songs all from the comfort of your own home. All you need is your own ukulele and you're ready to go. Specific aspirations and needs will be considered, and you will be encouraged to develop your own style. I tend to focus on playing techniques and having fun with performance rather than getting too caught up in theory but I always provide a solid foundation of the basic essentials.
One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. Sylvia will plan your first lesson with care.
I am a DBS-checked ukulele teacher and performer, with more than 8 years experience of playing, performing open mics and on festival stages, and over 4 years teaching groups and private students.
I have a first-class honours degree in Film, TV & Drama and am also a qualified English teacher (CELTA).
Take a trial meeting with me, where we can chat about your ability, songs and techniques you may like to learn, and troubleshoot any immediate problems.

Perfect! Sylvia is great, very patient with me and chooses great tunes! Makes the whole thing fun....
An enthusiastic student with good basic ability. I look forward to more classes with you Matthew!
Perfect! I highly recommend Sylvia! She is always prepared for the lesson. She is positive and supportive.
Great student, with good ability and seems to be a fast learner! I look forward to more lessons with you Melissa.
Perfect! Sylvia is very easy going teacher with solid skills. She helped me to come up with a ukulele sheet of a song I always want to learn! Really enjoy having class with her.
Yuchu has great basic skills and could benefit from lessons to improve her chord memory and finger dexterity for playing melodies and riffs. I hope to see you again Yuchu! Please leave me a review with any feedback you may have :)
Perfect! I've had a few lessons with Sylwia, at first she was getting to know me and my skill level, as our lessons have progressed she has really listened and tapped into what I want to explore with my lessons. Each lesson has been more and more tailored to my specific needs. She is a really great teacher and has taken on board where I want to be stretched....and what kind of music I want to be exploring.
Great student, fast learner and very enthusiastic.
Perfect! She is very clear and easy going
I'm really enjoying teaching this couple; very personable, and enthusiastic.
Sylvia's classes are great, I am both learning a lot and having fun. She is always well prepared, has a ton of self-made material and knows all of the ins and outs of playing the ukelele. She also welcomes (and even encourages) you to suggest songs to play yourself, which makes learning so much more enjoyable!
Sylvia is very professional at all times as well as hunble and caring. She explains things clearly and concisely. She provides you with the material you need to learn and is also open to suggestions. She is understading of peoples needs and musical levels and is willing to work with you at your own pace. And she is super flexible with times and space; I do my classes online from New Zealand!
Sylvia is a wonderful teacher, she is enthusiastic about playing the ukulele and really patient, encouraging and positive. I've enjoyed learning from her and been able to learn songs I initially thought wouldn't be possible. I can't imagine a better ukulele teacher!
Sylvia is an excellent ukulele tutor. Very professional, patient and thorough. She provides easy to follow instructions for beginners and helpful materials (which you can keep). I quickly improved under Sylvia's tutilege and I couldn't have learnt the ukulele without her help.
