Learn ukulele while practicing your French 🇫🇷 / 🇬🇧

Besides speaking fluent English, I'm a native French speaker. I have students whose primary language is French, and others whose primary language is English.

So if you need to practice your French, it'd be amazing to do it during ukulele lessons!

You will study and learn French songs. Edith Piaf, Jaques Brel... I can also teach you modern songs if you wish. Thus it could be "nowaday" songs, folk songs, or "old" songs.

Join the fun, and learn, improve and practice your French while learning ukulele!


Learning and playing raggae music on the ukulele is so cool. What about some Bob Marley songs, like "Could you be love", "Jamming", "Sun is shining", or even "Buffalo Soldiers"?!

One of my favorite is a song from Bobby Mc Ferry: "Don't Worry, be Happy".

Rastamaaaaaan!! Get your uk'!

Why not learn playing J-pop on the ukulele? That sounds so much cool, I'm sure you'll love it.
