Hi, I’m Saskia. I first picked up the ukulele when I found the guitar was too hard, and we had one lying in the basement at home. It started out as a bit of a joke, learning to play Tiptoe Through The Tulips (if you haven’t seen it you really must) to make my stepdad laugh, but then I wrote my first song on it and I was hooked.
I have been playing and writing music on the ukulele ever since, in bands and for other people, for 16 years. I also play drums, guitar, bass guitar, accordion, and the trumpet… but the ukulele is the instrument that has always stuck by my side. It is so versatile and easy to carry around with you, I love to write on it because it is so small and simple. I’ve been teaching friends and family for years, but really found my feet at School of Uke where I now teach group lessons and one-to-one sessions.
"I love to sing along and to make sure you can too! Impress your friends and cover all your faves, I will teach you how to perform and play. It’s easy when you know how!"
