Wonderful teacher and wonderful class, there however was a problem with the course organser. She was very nice but she and 2 men decided to have a small party in the kitchen space in the same room with only a sheet of corregated metal up, it went on for about 40mins, whilst they were drinking beer and almost yelling at each other...presumably to be heard to each other over the ukeleles. The Course instructor had to yell at them 3 times to be quiet, they couldn't hear him (we weren't playing, they were just talking so loudly) and only heard him the 3rd time. It was all very odd and very distracting and unprofessional.

I would like to offer you a free class of your choice as an apology. Please let me know when you find something via email, Thanks again foe the feedback. Matt Co-Founder

I am definitely not a Uke player!! Had booked it for my partner and went along for a laugh. Enjoyed myself, and learnt the c chord, everything else went above my head. But joined in when everyone else was playing that chord! Laughed throughout. Tom The Pom was brilliant; although I had no idea I was entertained and held interest all the way through. Came out know how to play the first few notes of 'My Girl' - Very proud of my achievement :)
