Ukulele Classes in West Cork

Beginner Ukulele Classes for Adults in Clonakilty

Have you always wanted to learn an instrument but feel daunted at the prospect?  I run small informal group classes for adults in West Cork where the emphasis is on having fun while learning the basics on ukulele.

To find out why the ukulele is such a great instrument to learn check out my blog post Five Compelling Reasons Why You Should Learn To Play The Ukulele

Classes are held in O’Donovan’s Hotel Clonakilty on Monday evenings from  7-8 pm between September and May. 

Song sheets are provided as well as recordings to practise along with at home.

If you already play ukulele  you may be able to join my  Intermediate Monday night class which runs from 8.15-9.30pm.

Important: During this time of Covid-19, safety measures follow government guidelines with social distancing  in place and participants are asked to wear masks.  If there is another lockdown, classes will continue on zoom and recordings sent to participants afterwards. Please read our Covid Policy Here.

Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to find out more.

Please sign up to my newsletter if you want to hear about upcoming classes.   If you want to an introduction to the ukulele and have a mini-break too, you might like my Private Ukulele Retreats

What  my students have said about my classes:

‘I loved Claire’s classes-she emphasised building your skills one bit at a time but within a ‘group’ focus-so not about  ‘getting it right’ but playing to enjoy playing with the class. This made it a relaxed & fun way to learn something new.  Each week built on the last on so liked that had some songs by the end.’  Angela

‘Thoroughly enjoyed the class. Learnt a lot of chords & different strums.  Had fun!’  Lynn Barry

‘Really enjoyed the social aspect that went along with learning a new instrument.  Small group was great & really supportive’  Paula Dooley

‘Very relaxed environment for me to learn as a real beginner.  Music recordings on dropbox helped me to learn the tune & strum timing.’  Brid O’Mahony

‘Claire is a brilliant teacher and the pace is perfect and sending the recordings on dropbox is a great way of practising’.  June Fairhead
