Hello Uke Lover!
My name is JP Allen and I've been teaching and performing music professionally for over two decades:
I've taught at University of Texas, Austin Community College and even toured all over the world with Grammy nominated Abra Moore.
I particularly love teaching ukulele (and the harmonica) because they’re so dang easy to learn - when you learn the right way...
Why do so many people give up when trying to learn the uke, or any other instrument for that matter? And why do so few sound so good? A study in 1993 by Anders Ericsson lifts the lid...
The study revealed that if you want to get good at learning something then:
So what is the secret to getting great as quickly as possible? Simple: Deliberate Practice. My video lessons do this by...
Turning your uke-playing weakness into a strength by focusing on the things that will help you the most. They also help you enjoy yourself and avoid hours of ineffective practice that creates progress-slowing bad habits.
My Ukulele Buddy Video Method is the easiest way to keep you focused until you've mastered the uke because...
...all you've got to do is play along with my 7 minute videos, 3 times per week. You never have to practice alone - just grab your uke and strum along! Really?
Because my 100% video-based-method uses the PROVEN principles of Deliberate Practice you will get better faster.
Deliberate Practice is celebrated in Geoff Colvin's first book, "TALENT IS OVERRATED", which earned global acclaim as a NY TIMES & WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER.
...all you’ve got to do is grab your Uke and play along with my videos. You never have to practice alone - just play along!
As an another study, published in the Journal of Research in Music Education in 2009 explained, “It’s Not How Much; It’s How”. Here's how...
How can anyone get good at anything without practicing? The same way kids do. YOU PLAY!
All you've got to do is jam along with my video lessons and I can hand deliver you to a level that'll make your friends go “WOW!” Just grab your uke, cue up the video and jam along. Just play!
Once you finish one video, you move on to the next. You never have to practice alone because I will be playing with you and showing you exactly what to do every step of the way. This means...
1. Because I hold your hand through every step you'll avoid picking up those bad habits that often kill progress and cause frustration.
2. Practicing alone, effectively, can be mind numbingly boring. It's one of the most common reasons people give up. My lessons mean you don't have to practice alone (if you don't want to).
Just play along and you'll be pleasantly surprised at just how quickly you get sounding good.
The second common problem with learning the uke is that people just don't have enough hours in the day. I made sure my lessons were designed in such a way that you can progress with just 7 minutes, three times a week.
Seriously - with just 7 minutes of play, three times a week, I'll have you playing the songs you love in no time at all. The more you play along with my videos the faster you improve! (If you can’t give me a minimum of 7 minutes per week, then these lessons are probably not for you). That's not all though...
How do you make one of the best learning methods on the planet better? Simple. Get a world class uke teacher to join in the fun! Meet Mitch!

I signed up for uke lessons because I couldn't find anyone in our vicinity you could teach me properly. I can say that I love your website lessons and it has given my hours of help on learning my favourite instrument.
If you’re an Advanced Musician, this course is probably not right for you. But if you’re someone who has noodled around with ukulele or other instruments with little success, you’re going to be playing at a level that makes your friends go “Wow!” in no time.
