Testimonials from ukulele students:
It was an amazing experience learning ukelele lessons from this talented young man . I went in there a few weeks ago a little bit sceptical about the outcome of this tuition with the degree of difficulty for a vision impaired teacher to teach me how to play this instrument . I must say that I was totally amazed by his patience , clear explanation and not once did I feel his impairement . 04 weeks after the lessons i can honestly say that it was an absolute pleasure learning from Phillip and most of all I can play the Ukulele . Yay !!!!
Marian Savage, New Zealand
I had never touched a ukelele before I found Phillips’ website on the intenet and now after only 4 lessons with Phillip I can play several songs and am now looking to join a beginners group. The lessons are done in an informal setting and at your own pace with Phillip as an enthusiastic teacher. I look forward to returning to Traralgon and having a jam with you in the future.
u really do cater to all abilities. As a more advanced learner I have felt that I have gained a clearer understanding of the ukulele giving me much more confidence in playing whilst keeping it light hearted and fun.
Thanks very much
