Thank you Phil for all your encouragement and support in helping me to build up my confidence in preparing and playing live with you! It’s nice to see people enjoying themselves when we played and I look forward to performing with you again. – Warren Bartlett

Phillip’s lessons were great! Starting as an absolute beginner he has taught me so much. Phillip is friendly, encouraging and very knowledgable about music. – Abbey Paten

I had never touched a ukelele before I found Phillips’ website on the internet and now after only 4 lessons with Phillip I can play several songs and am now looking to join a beginners group – Marian Savage, New Zealand

Mum and I did Uke lessons with Phillip for a month over the computer. We learnt heaps and it was really fun doing it with Mum too. We play it together now and have learnt so many songs. Phillip was really funny and made me feel like it was ok to make mistakes while I was learning. I’m loving playing my uke and practise all the time now. Thanks. – Lexi Kenter

I would thoroughly recommend Philip’s uke lessons. With the convenience of face to face or over the computer lessons, a great value price, and how much we learnt and improved, we couldn’t be happier. Thanks Phillip. – Nicole Kenter
