What you'll do

Join me for a fun and musically-inspired experience, where you'll learn how to play the ukulele at beautiful Bondi Beach. Sitting on the grass overlooking the surfers you'll learn some easy songs and plenty more to get you started playing (and singing) your first song!

For less than a fraction of the cost of a good ukulele, follow your dreams to make music & learn everything you need to know about playing the ukulele in one 2-hour lesson! Chords, strumming, fingerpicking, scales, soloing & improvising - even writing songs! (...and if it is just you - it'll be a private lesson! :)

A free 'homework' book is included, so you can take everything you will learn home with you to practice - equivalent to about 2-3 months of weekly lessons. You'll also get to try different sizes of Ukes (from tiny Soprano to the huge Baritone, incl. Concert and Tenor ones) to see which one you like best :)

Class times and sizes are also flexible - please contact me to arrange a special time just for you... I generally try and avoid weekends at Bondi Beach, as it can get so noisy and crowded, but if you are only free on weekends, mornings or evenings, please message me on here via Airbnb, and I will try and arrange something just for you if I can :)

ps. Also, if you have longer fingernails, it may be best to trim them just a bit before class :) Thanks!

I've been a professional musician since about the age of 12 and have taught music at university, as well as lately more 'one-on-one' and casual private group lessons. I love that the ukulele is so easy to learn to play and have a good time with -- It's heaps-of-fun!

Where you'll be

Bondi Beach is a globally-recognised icon. Imagine lazy summer days strumming your uke watching the surfers while you play beautiful songs.

(Note: there are also shady spots we can sit out of the sun as well… and, if it is ‘spitting’ (as we say in Australia for a light drizzle or a little rain) we can also sit on a covered park bench under a rooftop)

Ps. Bring a beach towel & bathers, so you can go for a swim before or after, if you want to :)

Could not have been more perfect; fantastic location on the beach and great learning something new in a fun way. Dan was great - very friendly and welcoming and a patient teacher. We learned a lot in a short time. Will book again in the future.

Over and over we played Dan’s ukuleles; Dan always had another happy reason to keep us making music. Learning by doing! The setting was world-class; the lessons were clear; and Maestro Dan kept coaxing us until our skills appeared. Wow!

Perfect music class facing with a fantastic coastal view. I could not image a better learning environment in the world. Dan is a fantastic teacher as well. He prepared a manual and introduced in details but very simplifiedly. Anyway, very inspiring to play tunes within the training time.

Dan is super friendly and easy going. He lets you explore the ukulele at your own pace, strum it and hold it as you are most comfortable. The whole group was jammin by the end with own style. Lots of fun and he gives a you book with tips and simple songs to practice.

Obwohl ich in meinem Leben noch nie ein Instrument gespielt habe, wurde Dan's Versprechen, am Ende der Session ein Lied zu spielen gehalten. Er hat gute Skills im unterrichten und immer gut motiviert. Vielen Dank, Dan. Katharina und Mirko
