      Enjoy your ukulele classes in the inspiring surroundings of London's World Famous Ukulele Specialist Store. A Shoreditch institution and situated by East London's buzzing Brick Lane, Duke of Uke has hosted School of Uke experiences since 2006. With the notorious Carpenter's Arms Pub across the road, there's a selection of world wines, craft ales and Belgian beers to accompany you on your ukulele adventure!

      Beginners 

      We welcome beginners and if you've already completed our '5 Week Ukulele Challenge' - this is the next step up for you! Perhaps you've picked up a couple of chords already or if you fancy diving right in? Through a selection of popular songs curated and arranged by School of Uke we’ll give you all the necessary technique and confidence to start your musical journey!

      Rock, Pop, R&B, and Disco Classics at Your Fingertips

      All techniques will be taught by looking at popular Rock, Pop and R&B Classics. Think ABBA, Blondie, The Cure, Bowie, Stevie Wonder, ACDC, Diana Ross, 80s Anthems and 60s Classics from The Shirelles to the Shangr-Las and many more! Song requests are encouraged and will be explored whenever possible.

      Confident Playing Technique
