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!
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.
I can provide lessons at the following rates:
30 mins @ £18 per session
45 mins @ £22 per session
60 mins @ £28 per session
I am a specialist ukulele tutor based in Liverpool and have taught students of all ages (5+) from absolute beginner level to advanced level. I fell in love with the ukulele back in 2010 after having played both guitar and drums for a number of years with various bands and artists. The portability and ease of initial learning inspired me to set up a ukulele club in 2012 which has been a great success. Many students have gone on to form their own clubs and bands and some now teach others too. I have a varied collection of teaching methods that can be adapted to suit each individual learner and encourage a number of playing methods from strumming to finger picking and everything else in between. The ukulele is extremely versatile and I'm yet to find a song or a tune that can't be adapted to suit it.
With specific training for RGT ukulele qualifications grades 1 - 3, I can adapt learning so that you can gain accredited grading and ACAS points if you decided upon formal qualifications. So whether you want to learn for fun, or gain accredited experience get in touch and start your ukulele adventures today.
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.
