Frequently Asked Questions


What level is this course for?

This course is intended for absolute beginners up to intermediate players and everything in between.

Do I need a low G ukulele to play along this course?

This course covers the principles and techniques behind fingerstyle, which can be applied to any ukulele tuning - it can even be applied to the guitar if you want. A low G ukulele is not required, however, all the repertoire pieces are arranged for low g tuning. Without a low G ukulele you can still follow along with the melodies and some repertoire pieces work entirely fine for both tunings (high G and low G). If you have a high G tuned ukulele and would like to make the switch to low G, a low G string set is inexpensive and can be ordered from our partners with our exclusive discount codes.

Can you explain the return policy a bit more?

A full refund can be requested within 14 days of purchase date as long as you have accessed less than 15 lessons.

Do I have to pay for future upgrades?

No, you will have access to all future upgrades at no extra charge.

Do I have access to the course for life?

You have access to the entire course for its lifetime. If the course were ever to go offline, students would be provided with 6 months notice.
