Styles & Genres
I’ve got a really diverse music taste, but I’m a sucker for grunge and indie pop. Also, on the complete other end of the musical spectrum, I love classic pop hits and jazz standards (it must be the musical theatre hidden in the teenage angst). I’m a big fan of chord melody and fingerstyle playing - I think it sounds amazing on ukulele.

Escape (The Piña Colada Song) - Rupert Holmes

I’m Jason and I work as an actor in musical theatre – I’ve just been in Mary Poppins in the West End. About 9 years ago, I bought a guitar… and hated it. In my frustration, I got a ukulele and I haven’t thought about playing anything else since.
I’ve been teaching at School of Uke for about 3 years and I’ve taught all levels in that time. I love sharing what I’ve learned with my students and finding out the music and styles they love. I also love a good singalong and a bit of a performance – did I mention I do musical theatre..??
