A Curated Set of Lessons

Lesson Series

A Lesson Series is a curated set of lessons in a somewhat logical order of study. With so many lessons on LearningUkulele.com it can be a bit overwhelming at times to find what you are looking for or answer the question, What's next? We have set these series up for Gold Members and private students.

Getting Started Series of `Ukulele Lessons

Published: 01 Jan 2003 Updated: 08 Jun 2023Visits: 2105Code: ULB01

The purpose of this lesson series is to guide beginners who are just starting out on their ukulele journey. The goal, both for you and for me, is to establish a strong foundation that will support your future learning and development with this enjoyable and captivating instrument - the ukulele. Moreover, these lessons also serve as a valuable refresher for more experienced players who have been playing for a while or find themselves in a position to offer assistance or guidance to fellow musicians.

Whether you are a beginner seeking guidance or a seasoned player looking to revisit the fundamentals, this series of lessons will prove to be highly beneficial. It will equip you with the necessary skills, knowledge, and techniques to establish a solid base for your ukulele playing. Additionally, for those with more experience, it serves as an opportunity to reinforce your understanding and expand your ability to assist and provide valuable advice to other players.

Before You Pick Up Your Ukulele

START HERE: If you are brand new to the ukulele or in a position to help others create a solid foundation of the basics the UkuleleLessonSeries: Before You Pickup Your Uke, Getting Started Basics is a good place to start before starting this series of lessons.

The pace at which you progress through the lessons and material on LearningUkulele.com is entirely up to you. It's important to take your time and set small, achievable goals. Each lesson contains a significant amount of material, and they are designed to build upon one another. It's crucial to allocate as much time as necessary to each task. Rushing through or skipping sections may lead to challenges and difficulties in the future. Taking shortcuts or jumping around can cause you to miss out on important concepts and information.

When suggesting and recommending lessons to visitors and players who haven't had the opportunity for a personalized evaluation from a qualified teacher, it becomes a bit challenging. Just like a book cannot cater to the specific goals and needs of every individual, a series of lessons needs to cover a wide range of material in a somewhat general manner. Think of each set of lessons as a menu of options from which you can choose based on your interests and requirements.

Currently, there are over 700 lessons available online for the ukulele, and the collection continues to grow. Over the years, I have created these lessons to address various topics and tasks. If you don't find a particular topic or specific task you're looking for, there's a good chance that LearningUkulele.com have something available or can create a lesson specifically tailored to your needs.

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books!Peter Rhee
