Ukulele Lesson with Laura Coles
"I love teaching ukulele as it is one of the most accessible instruments, but can be taken to any level. And... you can very much shred on one! One of my favourite things to do is work out versions of songs that don’t feature a ukulele or even a guitar, so I have a big pop back catalogue that I am always adding to." - Laura

Hi, I'm Laura and I've been playing ukulele for almost ten years, after seeking out a more portable alternative to my equally-beloved (but heavy!) guitar. I also play banjo, drums, bass and keyboards. I've been teaching ukulele, guitar and bass for several years, both for School of Uke and in schools around London.
When not teaching, I can be found playing in a plethora of bands, in the audience at gigs or behind the counter at Duke of Uke!
