Learn Ukulele

At A Virtual Music Festival

An online course that puts the FUN back into learning. Let’s see where our musical endeavours take us.

Virtual festival? What on earth..

What Is This Course?

Unique Learning

Not only will you learn to play the ukulele, but you’ll also follow a developing and engaging story as we journey through the festival.

Genuine Progression

The festival map provides a sense of direction, and the characters we meet give us a sense of purpose. Together, they create a natural path to progression on the instrument.

Improved Player

With over 80 lessons, you’re not only learning how to play songs; you’re also becoming a better ukulele player with each session, building your skills and confidence progressively.

The Learning path...

The Festival Map

Forget learning the C chord and not knowing where to go next. Ukulele Utopia is designed to make your progression on the Ukulele seamless. The festival map will guide you through each section.

Meet the Teacher..


Hi, I’m Stan (AKA EatMyUke). I’m a professional Ukulele player and content creator.

I’ve been playing musical instruments for over 20 years and I’ve seen time and time again what a profound effect music can have on people’s lives. It led me to commit myself to share my experience and encourage more people to pick up an instrument.

The Ukulele took centre stage in 2012 as I launched my YouTube channel and website. I create content that teaches completely fresh beginners and also people wanting to take their playing to the next level.

Lastly, let me clear this up…..although I have a big appetite, I do not eat Ukuleles.

Absolutely not! The lessons are designed to be user-friendly for students of all ages. Many of our students are 70+ years old and are improving every day!

No previous experience is required. It doesn’t matter if you are a complete beginner or an experienced player wanting to learn to brush up on some knowledge gaps.

While this isn’t specifically a course for kids, I designed each of the lessons to be straightforward and user-friendly for all students. Since every child develops and learns differently, I can’t say definitively whether the lessons will be a good fit for your child. However, we currently have students as young as 7 that follow the program with parental supervision and successfully take to the teaching style.

NO! During the riffs section of Ukulele Utopia, I dedicate a few lessons to reading and understanding Ukulele tabs. Seriously, it only takes a few minutes to get familiar with them. 

This is an online course that is based at a fictional music festival. Although I’m here to teach you how to play the ukulele, there’s a story going on in the background too. We are at the festival for a weekend but that dosent mean you will finish the course in a weekend.

Ukulele Utopia is a self-paced online course, so you can go through the lessons at any time that is convenient for you. You get lifetime access when you join, so you don’t need to worry about your schedule getting busy. If something does come up in your schedule that prevents you from starting right away or slows down your progress, the course will always be available for you to pick up again whenever you can come back to it.

YouTube is an amazing resource to start learning to play. However, this course is designed to take you to another level with a guided learning plan. Random YouTube videos now and again don’t give you any meaningful progression. Ukulele Utopia will.

Yes, I'm Serious, It's Free.

I believe learning should be accessible to everyone. Reflecting on my own journey, I spent countless hours as a teen learning guitar from free tab websites. Without those free resources, I wouldn’t be the musician I am today.

Inspired by those who generously shared their knowledge, I initially started charging for this course, believing it was a fair exchange for the effort and time I invested in creating it. However, over time, the urge to make the content freely available grew stronger. I realized that sharing this knowledge without barriers aligns more closely with my values and the spirit of those early resources that helped me so much.

Thus, I’ve decided to make this course free to help thousands of ukulele players. Enjoy the course and happy strumming!

The Basics

In this section, we will cover everything you need to know about starting to play the ukulele.


We know the basics, it’s time to delve into what’s going on with our strumming hand.


Chords are the backbone of most songs, let’s learn to play a few more.


Chords and strumming are great but… there’s nothing better than smashing out a riff on the ukulele.

Showing Off

In this section, we will discuss some dynamics you can add to improve your ukulele playing.


Fingerpicking is a great way to add more emotion to our chords.

In The Studio

Let’s put the ukulele down for a moment and jump into the studio.

The Big Show

This is it, it’s time to combine everything we have learned so far.
