Live interactive online ukulele workshops in partnership with Luton's Music Mix - free and exclusively for Lutonians!

About this Event

An ambitious project to get all of Luton and beyond playing the ukulele.

Adam and Phil from the music mix will teach you how to play the ukulele.

A weekly lesson will teach you all you need to know to get you strumming along in no time. Learn songs, play together, have fun.

If you don’t have a ukulele you can still order and have delivered one from here.

If you have a ukulele(s) that you are no longer using and might be able to donate then get in touch.

We're working with and through local community groups to supply ukuleles to those that might not be able to afford it so contact if you have a group that you would like to nominate.

Adam Cowburn

Adam studied a BA and MA at Leeds College of Music specialising in percussion. He has performed in many prestigious venues around the country performing in numerous musical styles. For over 10 years he has been teaching young people across the country a wide range of musical instruments including percussion and music technology. An impulse buy of a ukulele one day in a music shop started a lifelong love affair with the ukulele. Adam currently works for the Luton Music Service and in 2018, along with Phil Knight, founded The Ukulele School, an online resource.

Phil Knight

I then went off to study at the Guitar Institute in London where I earned my degree. Taking a year out at University saw me travelling around Australia, guitar in tow. After graduating I started working at the Luton music service teaching guitar. As part of my work with Luton, I discovered the ukulele and along with Adam, co-founded .
