“I attended ukulele lessons with Daniel for about 5 months. In this time I participated in private and group lessons. The private lessons allowed me to explore my own musical ability and work on some specific techniques while the group lessons provided me with a full hour of playing non stop. Both were vital to my playing and improvement. During my time I learnt to tune my uke by ear, read tabs, play melodies and chords, perform solo or in a group and even play by ear. Daniel’s ability to provide dynamic and diverse lessons makes the whole experience thoroughly enjoyable.” – Sinead O’C
“Daniel is the perfect teacher for anyone looking to learn the ukelele. He has a great repertoire of songs to teach and will help you master chords, melodies, and rhythms is no time. His classes are fun, relaxed and productive. I would definitely recommend him.” – Sallyann T.
I have been learning to play the Ukulele for around six months and bar piano when a kid, never played anything but the fool:)
Dan is passionate about his music and this is very prevalent in his teaching, I find him patient and he has an easy going relaxed approach.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the school!
I have also been to a couple of the rhythm workshops now and really enjoyed the buzz, the noise when it all comes together within the group is powerful and really lifts the spirits
Both teachers are passionate and create a relaxed comfortable environment which makes picking things up fun
I would thoroughly recommend!I had a ukulele hanging around the house. When Daniel’s leaflet came in the door with the offer of a free trial lesson, I thought it would be cool to learn a few tunes on it so I could join in on the annual ukulele festival in Dún Laoghaire for the craic. I didn’t think there would be any more hope of learning one or two stock tunes but I was content enough with that seeing as I’m a bit long in the tooth & no natural musician.Daniel opened my eyes to the possibility of a much wider scope for having fun with music than that! He’s taught me how to learn by ear so I wouldn’t have to always be dependent on having the “music” in front of me. He also taught me how to use sing while playing & free myself up to enjoy the experience more. And he has taught me various tricks for memorizing tunes while learning them.As a consequence my timing & sensitivity to the actual music around me has improved in a way I never thought possible – and in such a short time as well! I learn so much during each lesson that one can only imagine the prodigy I could have become if I had more time to practice! For the first time though, I ammotivated to make time to practice – so I must be having fun.Yes I would recommend Daniel to a friend because I walked out of my first lesson being able to strum along or play the melody to a tune that was coincidentally also subtling teaching me a scale & useful easy chords. Each lesson introduces a new element of versatility with a new tune. What a sneak – but in such a good way!
“When I started my lessons with Daniel I was so nervous as I had never played an instrument in my life. But Daniel made me feel so comfortable and relaxed while learning to play. I feel confident that I am progressing at a steady pace. Daniel always has new and exciting songs for me to learn every week. He makes you feel at ease and is so patient which I feel makes a great teacher!”
– Gillian D.
“Daniel is not only an extremely talented musician but also a great teacher. I came to him as a complete beginner wishing to learn a few of my favourite songs and we’ve done exactly that. Daniels patience and understanding of basic techniques have helped me hugely. It’s been a pleasure to learn from such a genuinely lovely guy! Thanks Daniel ” – Saoirse B. (Guitar student)
“lessons are most enjoyable!” – Peter H.
