Founded in 2009, Ruby’s Ukes has been providing the perfect environment to learn the Ukulele with a fun, easy and successful approach. These group classes are perfect for all time schedules and levels of playing ~ offering evening, and weekend classes for the
absolute beginner to advanced player. With over 11 Ukulele Classes a week on offer, we are “perhaps the largest Ukulele School in the world outside of Hawaii” (Ukulele Magazine).

Ruby’s Ukes 10 week Ukuleles Courses run every September, January and April, with workshops, A Ukulele Orchestra, the Annual Vancouver Ukulele Festival, and additional classes and workshops throughout the year. And now a Summer School too!

“Our workshops work because they’re so much fun,” explains Daphne. “People help and learn from each other. It doesn’t matter what level you’re on. When people are sharing the moment, you’re playing with new friends. No-one feels exposed or under pressure.”
