I love to perform and teach adults and children of all ages, and to share my passion for the ukulele with everyone I meet. Let me help you find your new passion within the ukulele.”

Teaching Level

Beginners of all ages. Francesca is especially good at engaging children (4+yrs) in fun and supportive music lessons incorporating rhythm, dance and singing. 


Francesca teaches both adults and children 4+ years, and is currently awaiting an enhanced DBS certificate, which is expected later this week.

What to expect?

"A lesson with me is about embracing and trusting the process of learning. I'll cheer you up in frustrating times and celebrate you when you succeed. Every step counts!"

Styles & Genres

I love to teach strumming and rhythm techniques, especially for beginners who sometimes struggle with initial strumming patterns. As a singer/songwriter, I can also provide support with singing while playing the ukulele.

My favourite genres are jazz, blues, hip hop, rock and roll, soul and funk. My heart is stuck in the oldies, from the '50s to the early '00s.

Favourite Songs to Teach

Sh-boom - The Chords

Hit the road Jack - Ray Charles

Just the two of us - Bill Withers

Three Little Birds - Bob Marley

Singing In The Rain - Gene Kelly 


Hi, I'm Francesca and I'm forging my music career in London as a singer/songwriter. I grew up in a small town in Calabria in Italy, and I moved to London in 2020 to pursue my passion for music. 

I’m predominantly a singer, and I started singing when I was very young. Encouraged by mother and sisters who also sang, my childhood home was always filled with songs and laughter. I sang obsessively every day for hours and hours, so music has always been in my blood. 

It wasn’t until 2020 that I bought my first ukulele, and I haven’t been able to put it down since. It’s my companion, my safe place, my therapist and my guiding light! It fills my life with positivity and aside from singing, I never felt so passionate about anything before. 

So music is my life, and I’m loving it. I currently perform as a singer with  ukulele in a variety of music and jazz venues in London including The Blues Kitchen. When I’m not performing I love to share my passion through teaching both group based lessons and individuals with the School of Uke. 

I especially love to teach complete beginners and children, and to experience that special feeling that comes with learning to play the ukulele and overcoming new challenges.

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.
