Recommendations:

  • “I immensely enjoyed the September sessions, followed by the Super Strummer course, which I got so much out of. I’ve never before been introduced to doing riffs and finger-picking patterns on the Ukulele, along with more complex strums and was amazed by the diverse range of content taught to the group.” Tessa Marshall. January 2022
  • “Highly recommended… Steph Payne is an accomplished teacher, arranger, Music Director, instrumentalist and vocalist. It’s well worth turning up just to listen to her sing, but you’d be crazy not to take this opportunity to develop your ukulele skills. Plenty of opportunity here to still achieve something in lockdown while we’re learning to live with COVID.” Garry Wood. 5 September 2021
  • “Steph is a fantastic teacher! You will love her classes and be playing in no time.” Marnie Ward. 5 September 2021
