Hi, I’m Trudy and I’ve taught at School of Uke for over 7 years. As a lead tutor I have taught a range of courses and individual tuition for beginners to more experienced players. After learning the guitar and bass from age of 11 to play in my family’s Jazz band, I started playing the ukulele 8 years ago and quickly fell in love with its unique sound and portability!
I’ve spent many years performing in a range of musical projects including a ukulele band formed with several other School of Uke tutors. I work primarily in television as a Casting Director, but I love to teach and arrange unlikely pop gems on this fantastic instrument!
"Watching a student fall in love with the ukulele is one of the most satisfying aspects of teaching. If I can share even an ounce of my passion for music, then it’s a successful lesson!"
