Teaching Level

Ricardo teaches Adults and children aged 6+ and has an Enhanced DBS check.

What to expect?

Forget about stressful teachers and excruciating hours of practice! During my lessons we’ll listen to your favourite tracks, study your favourite artists and discover your unique sound as a ukulele player and musician.

Styles & Genres

Jazz and Latin music

A huge part of my life. Learning to play samba or bossa on the ukulele will massively improve your understanding of rhythm and harmony.

R & B and Neo-soul

Once you try classic and modern soul on the ukulele you will not want to go back. From Otis Redding to Jorja Smith, I can teach how to spice up your chord progressions and make them your own.

Rock and Pop

Where my musical journey began. Playing your favourite tunes and singing along is a wonderful experience, and I can help you get there!

Favourite Songs to Teach

La vie en Rose – Édith Piaf

Isn’t she lovely – Stevie Wonder

Don’t look back in anger - Oasis

Best Part – Daniel Caesar

Dede que o samba é samba – Caetano Veloso

Onto my second course with School of Uke now! 🎉 Amazing fun, brilliant teaching, awesome people!! I will be back for more! 😁

Avital Kaye

I’ve done 3 classes over the last few years, and it’s always a blast. Playing as a group is very different to playing on your own, and whether you’re a beginner or more advanced, you’ll be shown new ways to play and new styles of music. You’ll learn loads, and most importantly you’ll meet great people!

Dan Stewart

Great teaching and so much fun! Enjoyed every minute while also felt challenged-everyone should learn to play an instrument.

Edina Imrik

Classes at the Duke of Uke are great fun and each term is different so that your ukulele technique improves while you learn about different musical genres. The teaching is superb, and there’s a real sense of community as you get to know your class and play at end of term concerts. Highly recommended!

Ben Campkin

I am now in my second year of classes at the school of Uke. I absolutely love it. I arrived as a complete beginner, not being able to play a note and now a year later I am a complete addict.

Karen Neill

The atmosphere was incredible, fun, inclusive and comfortable, all allowing us to learn in a relaxed but structured way. Instructors are great, patient, kind, knowledgeable, guiding us through each step with enthusiasm, patience and good humour.

Catherine Young

It’s been utterly magnificent getting to spend Tuesday evenings for the past 10 weeks, learning a new skill playing alongside this superb set of humans.

Expect smiles, laughs, fun songs you want to learn and your new found favourite hobby all rolled into one!

Ruby isla Cera Marle

I have to say they're brilliant. The tutors are talented and professional musicians so if you want to learn/improve your ukulele and musicianship in a group setting look no further - you're guaranteed a good vibe and you'll meet some really lovely new people too!

Mary Almond

This is such a supportive way to learn to play a musical instrument - supported by both the tutors and my fellow students; the perfect balance of challenge, learning and friendship.
