Learning to play the Ukulele is so easy!
With Uko Ono you can learn easily via private lessons – available for individuals or small groups either in person or via Skype.
We can teach you the basic chords, strumming patterns and simple songs, and in no time you will be a Ukulele player!

Uko Ono offers workshops for the corporate, education and not-for-profit sectors. Ideal for team-building, breaking up training days, energising conferences, festivals and events, let Uko Ono tailor a program for your needs.
We are bringing the music to the Coffs Coast!

If you’ve got a group of friends/colleagues interested, private groups can also be arranged.
“It was an absolute delight to have Steph come into our workplace and teach a group of us ukulele. We all thoroughly enjoyed Steph’s enthusiasm, playfulness, encouragement, patience, and the fabulous collection of songs we learnt! I would absolutely recommend Steph as a wonderful and inspiring teacher!”
"We engaged Uko Ono to run a Ukulele workshop at the Regional Wellbeing Masterclass, a one day professional development event for local community workers and psychologists. Participants were invited to get involved and try a new activity that is fun and creative and aids in looking after their own wellbeing. The feedback we received from participants was overwhelmingly positive and enthusiastic. They loved it!"
“I could not praise Stephanie from Uko Ono highly enough. She brings an abundance of joy and happiness to your workplace and radiates her passion for music and the ukulele. Having her lead the group was a great team building exercise and allowed us to share plenty of laughter and fun together. This new energy in the business is really valuable for both our team and our clients. I would definitely recommend Uko Ono to any business owner or manager looking to bring some fun and energy to their workplace.”
"Stephanie came to my home to teach some friends and I the ukulele. Can't remember the last time I've had so much fun and felt so uplifted afterwards. The lesson was joyful and Stephanie made everything seem simple, and gave us all the encouragement we fledgling musicians needed. I haven't stopped playing my ukulele since and have quickly learned some awesome tunes. Stephanie's enthusiasm is so infectious you can't help but fall in love with the uke. Would highly recommend her workshops to anyone."
"The Heart and Soul Foundation’s programs are offered to women who have been through trauma, often domestic and sexual violence. Stephanie holds a warm and welcoming space for these women and delivers her workshop with absolute joy. Her passion and love for this instrument are obvious and infectious. There is always a lot of laughter and the women leave feeling inspired with a deeper sense of pride. I would highly recommend Stephanie and her Instrument of Joy."
"What can I say... pure joy! Utterly professional, an absolute delight to work with. Stephanie delivered a ukulele workshop as a component of some of our recent team building work. Her workshop brings so much energy and joy which really sparked the room. Stephanie’s delivery skilfully aligned to our learning outcomes for the day. The whole process of working with Stephanie was simple, delightful and inspiring."
"Each week I look forward to my hour of fun with fellow ukulele beginners under the auspices of our enthusiastic and encouraging teacher, Steph Ney. We are a disparate group, from primary schoolers to grandparents, and her understanding and passion makes us all feel comfortable. And the interesting music choices mean I feel like practising between sessions, too!"
"When I heard that Stephanie was starting up a Ukelele group I was so excited. I had made a few attempts at learning it myself but never succeeded. By the end of the first lesson I was completely hooked. It was so much fun and I was so excited and over joyed to have played my first song from start to finish with a group. Stephanie guides you and the group at a pace which is safe yet challenging. You can work at your own pace till you are ready to cut loose and rock your Uke like a pro"
