More about the course

You don't need to be able to read music or have any musical experience and even if you have been playing for a while you will still fit in the fun. Following this course, you should have no trouble in being able to liven up a gathering by playing the songs learnt at Camp Creative.

Even if you've been playing uke for a while, this course is for you - Terry works with many levels of experience.

Many previous attendees have returned in following years to savour more of the week of fun and learning.

The 2020 Fun Uke course will be the grand finale for Terry after a long time at Camp Creative - and he promises it will be a good one!

 

Student Feedback

2019 Camp Creative Survey

"I think Terry Stapleton's wonderful way of making it joyful and unintimidating is what makes it so special."

"Inclusive, fun and encouraging. Such a confidence-building course for beginners."

 

2018 Camp Creative Survey

"I was so excited to be playing a few chords and playing songs on the first day after having never played the ukulele before."

"Terry is great fun, so we created a sort of cheerful cooperative group. While the course is truly a course for beginners, some who had more skills also joined in to advantage. For me it was a chance to sing a lot of great old songs - I knew many more than I thought. And learn a few chords."

 

2017 Camp Creative Survey

"Terry is a VERY good teacher: seeks and is guided by feedback, is funny, is entertaining and is able to explain complex information easily and accessibly."
