Designed in conjunction with The Ukulele Teacher himself, this app has everything you need to get started with the uke. You’ll be strumming along to your favourite songs in no time.
For beginners, there’s a built-in tuner to make sure your uke sounds great and a chord library so you can look up those tricky chords when you’re not at a computer.
For the more advanced player there’s a tool for practicing your scales so you can whizz up and down the fretboard like a junior Jake Shimabukuro.
The Ukulele App is also the only place where you’ll find a fully-searchable catalogue of all of The Ukulele Teacher’s lessons in one easy-to-find place.
Whether you’re just starting out on the ukulele, or you’re an experienced musician, this app will be indispensable on your journey to becoming a better player. Right now we have everything you need to get started - a tuner, a chord finder to look up any chords you’re not sure of, plus a special section for practicing your scales.
We also have a full list of every single one of my videos - listed alphabetically by song title and/or artiste, making it WAY easier to find what you’re looking for than it is on YouTube!
But this is just the beginning! We’ve got some great ideas for future versions of this app, and we will be updating and improving it regularly.

How to use the App
Once you’ve opened the app and swiped up, you’ll be presented with the menu screen. Here you’ll find a number of options (with many more exciting features to be introduced in future updates) to get you going.
Just tap on the circular icon of your choice, and it will open the tool you need. Whether you want to tune your ukulele, find out how to play a particular chord, practice your scales, or watch the latest lesson from The Ukulele Teacher, you’ll find it all here, on the app’s menu screen.
Practicing your scales might not be the most exciting thing in the world, but it’s a great way to master your way around the fret board and find out what notes you’re actually playing! Press the ✔️button and spin the wheels until you find what scale you want to play, then press it again and the app will show you the notes you need to play.
Scroll up and down the fret board to see the different positions the scale can be played in. Press the ▶️ button to hear what the scale should sound like.
Here’s you’ll find every single video I’ve ever posted to YouTube. But not only that, you can search for the lesson you’re looking for by artist, song title OR difficulty level.
It’s WAY easier to find what you’re looking for here than it is on YouTube, and every video that I upload will be on the app as soon as it appears on YouTube, so keep checking back for new lessons twice a week!
The Ukulele App is the ONLY official app supported by The Ukulele Teacher. If you’re a complete beginner, this app will be invaluable in your progress as a ukulele player, with all the tools you’ll need to go from novice to noodling in no time! And if you’re already experienced, the app will be a great companion for when you’re on the go.
So open up the app, swipe up, and let’s check it out!
Tuning your ukulele before you start to play is CRUCIAL - otherwise, no matter how good you might be at picking and strumming - it will sound TERRIBLE! If you don’t have an electric tuner, tune each string of your ukulele until it sounds like this one.Tighten the strings to make the note higher, or loosen them to make them lower. But be careful not to snap them.
If you need more help tuning your uke, check out my “How To Tune A Ukulele” lesson in the Videos section of the app.
Trying to play a song but don’t know some of the chords? Look them up using this handy chord-finder!

Scroll up and down the fretboard to see the different positions the chord can be played in. Press the ▶️ button to hear what the chord should sound like.
Don’t know what chord you’re playing? Just tell the app what notes you’re playing and it’ll tell you the name of the chord! Press the 🔍 button to open the chord finder, and then slide the pink dots into position until they match what you’re playing on your own ukulele, and the app will tell you the proper name for that chord. Press the ▶️ button to hear what the chord should sound like. Please note that this feature is limited to three uses in the free version of this app, but can be unlocked in the full version.
