West Yorkshire - Jeremy Quayle

From over thirty years of playing and performing in a broad variety of musical styles, and over twenty years’ experience of teaching ukulele and guitar to individuals and groups, Jez has developed an approach that has proven to be fast and effective: - 

For beginners: no prior knowledge of music or the ukulele is assumed - "I know how many beginners find musical concepts baffling and confusing, and may have been turned off music by the way it has been taught at school." - 

For advanced players: jez can help you develop you strumming technique, finger-picking, lead solo playing, knowledge of chords and song structures, and pass on many tips that you won't find in ukulele manuals. Jez is based in Leeds, West Yorkshire. Lessons can be given in your home or at Jez's (he has an advanced CRB check). 

Contact Jez Quayle via email: jeremy.quayle@hotmail.co.uk ... or via his youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/ukulelejez ...where you can also see him perform.
