Music graduate from the UK offering English taught ukulele lessons online or in Derbyshire.

Methodology

I have been playing the ukulele for nearly ten years and give fun and practical classes to students of all ages. I am also happy to teach music theory, vocal techniques, and of course to help with your English if it's not your first language!

In my classes, we will be learning a selection of popular songs and exercises, selected with the intention of expanding your skill-set as a musician and to create a performance repertoire that you will be able to use on stage at gigs or for casual jams with friends.

Experience

I graduated from Sussex university three years ago and have been teaching as an English Professor in Spain since then. In this role, I have taught English to hundreds of students from all around Spain. Now I wish to combine my two passions by giving music classes in English!

Perfect! Kai is a fantastic musician and tutor, with a flexible knowledge of theory and technique. He is perfectly suited to all styles and skill levels- novice to expert!

Kai's response

Hard working and attentive student, highly recommend.

Elena

Perfect! I could not have hoped for a better tutor than Kai!! :) He's a very professional teacher, kind, very well organised, encouraging and fun! He's also a lovely person :) I fully recommend trying ukulele classes with him - at the end of each lesson I feel happier and way more prepared than before. Kudos also because he's making the classes work so well despite the possible limitations of the online format. Super-recommended! :)

Kai's response

Elena is a great student to work with, she always brings a positive attitude to class and has shown a great interest in the subject. Since we're currently working on left-hand mobility, I would recommend that she incorporates the warm-up exercises we've learned in class into her regular practice routine. Great work so far and I'm looking forward to our next class together :)

Adept in a broad range of instruments and an overall great guy, Kai is a fantastic tutor. I'd recommend him to anyone looking to expand their musical expertise regardless of their age or proficiency.

I was lucky enough to stumble across a video of Kai from a gig a friend had attended. He's been teaching me the Ukulele for over 8 months now. I wont waste time championing Kai's skill with the ukulele, you can see his tender soulful performance for yourself, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4X0qew_31M. What I will comment on are his skills as a teacher. He never failed to push me that little bit further and if any frustration appeared he could win me back round with his boyish smile. If you choose Kai you'll be punting down the lazy rivers of Derbyshire town strumming away in no time.

Kai's been teaching my 6 year old for 6 months now and she couldn't be happier. She looks forward to every lesson and practices lots in between. Kai's a really reliable and friendly source of music education, can't recommend enough!

I’ve been having ukelele classes with Kai for two months now and I’ve learned a lot. Kai is a very patient and sweet teacher, he has studied music in university so he is very experienced. He also makes the classes very fun with the songs he chooses.
