We firmly believe in the power of group learning and fun sharing. That is what community music is all about.
Limited individual lessons prior to regional ukestras
Mark does do limited individual lessons up at Tomaree Ukestra and the Maitland Ukestra just prior to the sessions (8:45am & 5:45pm respectively). You have to give him a call or email to book in. Cost is $35 for a 30 minute lesson, and you can stay for the following session at no extra charge. We find that people only need one or two of these sessions before feeling ok about fumbling along at the ukestra (but anyone dedicated usually gets up to speed pretty swiftly).
Dedicated Individual Lessons
We do know that some people really desire to have individual lessons. And we like to try to help them connect with individual teachers in our community.
Many of you will know young John Wallace (far left of this photo, performing with Jack n Jel). He is not yet finished school (in 2018 he is in Year 11 at Hunter Performing Arts High School), but is one of the most exceptional musicians, and turning out to be a rather engaged, empathetic, patient and knowledgeable teachers.
John is offering a limited number of individual lesson slots in the city. You can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org or give him a call on 0431 545 105.
John’s teaching is independent of The Sum of the Parts (music), but we are happy to support his development as a community musician.
