“What a revelation! After one year learning ukulele and playing chords all by myself, I was feeling a bit bored and I wasn’t able to make much more progress. Then I found Mustafa’s offer, and I love it! In a little more than one month I was able to complete the Prep Grade, and I really feel like progressing again. I can play nice arrangement I didn’t think about just before! I just want to continue and get it better. I would definitely recommend subscribing to this course!” - Jerome Herman

Do you love the ukulele but can’t sing? Do you feel ‘stuck’ strumming chords? Do you practice yet feel no progress? And do you lack the structured approach to progress through your repertoire?

If you’ve answered yes to these questions, then playing fingerstyle is the answer:

  • Fingerstyle is the art of playing stand-alone arrangements. You can play melody, bass, accompaniment, and even percussion at the same time. Yes, this can be done on our little 4-string instrument!


  • Fingerstyle can be used as a substitute for strumming patterns to accompany yourself as a singer


  • Fingerstyle allows you to connect with the intimacy of the ukulele as a solo musician: playing recognizable arrangements of your favorite music is at your fingertips, literally!


  • Fingerstyle forces you to adopt proper technique and posture as well as new exciting ways to coordinate your hands. Let’s face it, it is harder than strumming!


  • Fingerstyle allows you the freedom of playing repertoire you never thought possible: play the classics of Bach, Vivaldi, Scarlatti, Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Giuliani, Sor, Tarrega, and more


  • Simply put, fingerstyle is more challenging, rewarding, and to top it all – FUN!

If you’re on this page, chances are you’re already familiar with fingerstyle, and have already seen the positives of it either via your own song projects or while watching arrangements online. So now you want to learn fingerstyle but:

  • Fingerstyle seems difficult compared to strumming chords (Yes, it is!)


  • You can ‘play’ the tab but still sound bad – the music is disconnected, and has no flow (No legato, wrong rhythms)


  • Your favorite strumming gurus all have resources on fingerstyle that conflict with each other, or


  • There are way too many tutorials available online with no clear path or direction


  • You lack structured curriculum to follow


  • Private lessons are too expensive

I know exactly how you feel, I too was once a student who had similar challenges. Which is exactly why I set out to make arrangements and tutorials on my YouTube channel so people like you get to experience just how accessible and fun fingerstyle really is on the ukulele. Here is what one (among thousands) of users had to say on my Scarlatti Sonata video

Its because of comments like these I’ve set out and created Ukulele Fingerstyle Basics, a complete and structured approach to fingerstyle ukulele that mirrors most royal conservatory programs in North America for Piano, Violin, Voice, and Classical Guitar, except at a fraction of the cost.

So, you might ask what is Ukulele Fingerstyle Basics course?

  • Absolute beginner to intermediate course bundle – Prep-Grade, Grades 1, 2, 3 and Technique Essentials (5 courses)


  • Structured curriculum that focuses on repertoire to teach techniques and concepts


  • Costs the same as 4 private lessons, teaches you the equivalent of 18 months of progress


  • Taught by a fingerstyle specialist (that’s me!) who for the past 15 years has focused all of his university education (BMus and MMus) on fingerstyle pedagogy including a masters degree on the ukulele


  • Includes over 300 video lectures, over 15 hours, and growing.

Ukulele Fingerstyle Basics is huge! To be honest, creating it wasn’t easy, there were times where I thought of just giving up and resuming private lessons. But I’m glad I didn’t, because after teaching for 12 years, I truly believe in the power of online courses:

  • Online courses are the best investment a student can make. Ukulele Fingerstyle Basics can easily cover your first 1 to 2 years of private lessons at a cost less than 4 private lessons!


  • Online courses enhance private lessons! My current course students have a breeze in their lessons when handling difficult repertoire because they already have the technique, music, and fingerings ready to go. They only need a lesson or two to talk about the ‘higher tier’ stuff. Again, this saves them a lot of money – instead of booking 4-8 lessons per song, they can tackle 2 songs per lesson


  • Online courses are perfect for adult students: pause, rewind, fast forward, jump through lecture, rewatch, slow down, and watch whenever/wherever you want


  • You don’t have to commit a weekly slot to a teacher in a busy life schedule. Learn at your own pace and comfort.

"...I have been self-learning ukulele for about a year now and I wanted something that will take me a step further than playing chords. I can't sing either and I want to be able to play chord-melody pieces that can stand on their own. This course has given me so much more. The legato tips are filled with aha moments and the exercises are helping already.."

"...I’ve watched YouTube videos and other courses that touch upon aspects of what is covered here, however, only Ukulele Fingerstyle Basics manages to take these disparate building blocks and place them into a cohesive modular framework with context to develop your ability and understanding"
