Ukulele Teacher - Terry Smith
The most important thing for me as a ukulele teacher, is that you get exactly what you want from either the group lessons or private one-to-one lessons. If you want just a single lesson to get you off the starting blocks so you can then use the free online resources or you want a series of ten to learn more advanced blues or jazz techniques then that’s what I want to make sure I provide for you.
From experience people seem to want to be strumming their favourite songs really quickly and I’m confident that my ‘strum and sing’ method really delivers this. In just the first lesson I guarantee you’ll have at least four songs you can strum and the first one in just 15 minutes! I also keep musical theory to the absolute minimum so it’s never an issue if you’ve not covered any of that before.
It’s also really important that I can create for you the most appropriate environment that suits your own learning style best, so that you feel confident that you are really making the progress you want to be making, alongside having a genuinely enjoyable time too! It’s really rewarding for me that the group classes I run at Ritz Music Tuition Centre or The Half Moon in Putney have a really good reputation for being supportive, friendly and that people progress really quickly. This is also the same if your preference is to learn one to one from my home studio.
I teach groups, one to one adults and in schools and have enhanced level DBS (previously CRB). I also run the community uke band UKewLele.
