Would you like some bonuses?
Bonus #1: 3 Q & A Sessions
- Private lessons would take an investment of at least $240, and that wouldn’t include any videos that you could reference as a refresher whenever you needed it. In a group class format, you could expect to pay $80-$160 for a course like this. And I’m including sheet music and other materials as well as access to a Facebook group of your peers to ask questions and be a part of a friendly ukulele community.
- I really wanted to share this with as many people as possible, so I knew I wanted to keep it extremely affordable.
- And honestly, the bonus materials alone are worth more than the cost of this program! I wanted to make this course so affordable that purchasing it feels like the easiest decision you've made all year.
- The total value would be $320.
- But you’re not going to pay $320. You’re not even going to pay $220, or $150. You’re not even going to pay $100.
- The regular price of this course is only $74.99. BUT, if you join the beta group, you’ll get to pilot the course first, and in exchange for your feedback, you’ll pay only $29.99!
- How long do I have to decide? Beta testers should purchase the course ASAP. The regular course price of $74.99 will kick in after this first round is complete. And yes, you can give this course as a gift if you’d like to. Email [email protected] for details,

Ready to go from confused to confident on the ukulele?
Look, here's the reality.
- You're going to see success by studying under as many people as possible, whether it's instructors, fellow ukulele players in a group setting, Youtube videos, forums or anywhere else.
- I'm offering a structured course at a low enough price that you can hopefully add this into your arsenal, combining it with any other free or paid resources, in-person lessons, or whatever else you have at hand and can afford. To be clear, you won't need any other methods to learn to play, but if you've been learning on your own or from other instructors and are wondering if you need this course or not, this is my honest opinion.
- I think everyone should have access to this course. While I'm not independently wealthy and can't give it away for free, I'm trying to price it so that as many people as possible can get as much value and knowledge from me as possible.
- I'm offering my expert guidance to help you play the ukulele with confidence, focusing on the FUN of playing instead of getting lost in the confusion of figuring out where and how to learn.
“Thank you so much. Great fun, sense of community, can’t thank you enough.” - 2018 group ukulele student
