About the lesson
My method of training will have you strumming and plucking some of your favourite songs in no time. Instead of starting with the formal Music system of notation, I use the easier tab method along with chord charts so it’s all about the shapes and patterns to get you started, however there is more formalised training at the advanced levels. Being an avid videographer I have produced a number of mini ukulele training video tutorials that accompany the lessons so you don’t have to worry about forgetting a thing once you leave the session!
- All Levels
I am a music/media professional that specialises in teaching ukulele at all levels from absolute beginner to advanced in both group classes and private lessons working at Ukulele Club Liverpool for over seven years. Lessons can be adapted to either half hour, forty five minutes or full hour sessions and take place at a dedicated ukulele studio based in Toxteth TV media centre.
Great teacher and the classes are fun which makes it more enjoyable, I’m loving it
Elaine managed to cope with me as a man in my 60s who had never touched an instrument in his life. My initial aim was to be able to strum a few chords back home in my house, but only 9 months after I started I was playing with the ukulele club crew on stage at a Ukulele festival. Elaine is very knowledgeable, always smiling and brings infectious enthusiasm to her teaching and playing. Well recommend. John Firr Liverpool
Elaine is a great tutor, she is very friendly and supportive.
Elaine a super, talented musician and has a great understanding of how to welcome new or experienced musicians, I can only speak from my ukulele lessons (where I learned ALOT, well pretty much all I know now) but I have seen how her knowledge/talent extends to other instruments also, so if you’re wanting to learn more than one instrument, you’ve came to the right place!
I can’t recommend Elaine enough and I can guarantee your learning will be in experienced, capable hands!
I first attended Ukulele Club Liverpool nearly three years ago and through Elaine’s skill, dedication and sheer enthusiasm I’ve had fun and enjoyment playing in gigs around the city I never thought possible. Elaine is the creator and tutor of UCL and I can highly recommend Elaine and would encourage anyone to join UCL and learn this amazing instrument.
Elaine is so talented, endlessly patient and a lovely person too. Highly recommended.
Fabulous lady and an amazing teacher .
We now have our own band and Elaine taught all of us
Elaine is a very laid back teacher, when nothing appears to be too much effort, she has taught hundreds of players in the area and I can't emphasis how important Elaine's contribution to the local ukulele scene in Liverpool.
I took ukulele lessons with her 4/5 years ago and on that course I was introduced to the whole ukulele scene, what started out as a "mid-life-crisis" to learn an instrument has now become a major part of my life, music and the ukulele has brought joy, happiness and also helped me raise some large amounts for local charities. Also the other students who attended the course around the same time have become good friends. Keep up the good work.
Elaine not only managed to teach my daughter to play really well in a short space of time, she has filled the lessons full of fun so she enjoys playing and looks forward to the lessons. She even gave her the confidence to perform in the band Elaine founded. Couldn’t recommend her highly enough!
Best tutor ever, very patient. Taught a group of 5 nursery practitioners, who have gone on to teach the children. Fantastic. Highly recommend
Elaine takes a person-centred approach to teaching and gets pleasure out of groups taking ownership of their learning by giving song and performance suggestions. I have been a member of UCL since 2014 and have thoroughly enjoyed my time with them.
Elaine taught me everything I know about music and encouraged me every step of the way. Since taking lessons from her I've performed in several bands, at festivals, weddings and private events and have loved every minute. It's no exaggeration to say Elaine's lessons have changed my life (for the better obvs). Couldn't recommend her classes more. They build knowledge, understanding and confidence with a relaxed fun atmosphere
If you are going to learn uke,learn from the best there is, I was taught 4 years ago by Elaine, from there I have played alongside her with UCL,at the everyman, St.Georges hall,and many more great venues,and played at The Cavern with our band that we formed from within the club, I couldn't play a note at the start of my uke journey,
Thank you Elaine (Proff)

I highly recommend Elaine as a tutor. She has an abundance of knowledge
In her field and delivers her sessions with great enthusiasm. Elaine is patient and approachable. The sessions are always fun and encouraging.
I have been attending ukulele classes run by Elaine for over three years now and I would say it's one of the best things I've ever done.
Elaine is knowledgeable as a musician. An inspiration in what she plays. She is personable and makes the classes fun and informative. They are inclusive and she helps people of all abilities to improve and attain a level that they want to achieve.
I would recommend to anyone that the should learn the ukulele and in particular through any class that Elaine runs.
What can I say absolutely outstanding teacher ,gives you the confidence to pursue your ukelle goals , the four in my band elaine has taught all of us, from festivals to the cavern clubs and pubs it doesn't get much better
Elaine is a first class tutor. She is extremely knowledgeable and patient, with an engaging manner and great musical ability. Her enthusiasm for music is infectious, and I can thoroughly recommend her as an excellent tutor.
Elaine has been tutoring my daughter now for the past 6 months.
She is totally approachable, makes lessons fun and very personal to my daughter music tastes.
Her easy going nature makes my daughter feel at ease, without compromising her teaching .
My daughter loves attending each week, and I would highly recommend Elaine as a music teacher.
I took ukulele lessons from Elaine a few years ago. Elaine is a great tutor who can teach you both the practical and theory side of music. She's fun, engaging and approachable!
I started along the path of ukulele life with Elaine our prof. She is a wonderful teacher, woman and now uke friend. If you have the opportunity to get on any of her courses you will make friends for life as well as learning to play and love the Uke
