Danielle Scott @ Ukulele Central
Danielle Scott is a ukulele and Ubass teacher in Newcastle. You can read her amazing journey to ukulele on her site where she has many uke resources both free and for purchase.
She says: "I built Ukulele Central because I'm really interested in people, what they’re aiming for in music playing and how they learn. With that in mind, I've listened to what they have to say, researched, implemented methods and developed products to achieve results for ukulele and U-bass players."

Do you need a customised arrangement for your group? Read on!
'I enjoy hand crafting Ukulele ensemble arrangements, based on the instrumentation you have available and the levels of the players in your group. I will normally include a very basic part and a chord part for those setting out on their ukulele journey.
I can include Bass, Baritone, Low G as well as the High G re-entrant tuning. I am also be able to use any other non fretted instruments that is needed - flute, violin, cello etc.
The arrangements come with a full score and parts and a MIDI file or MP3 recording of my score.
Existing scores are $12.50 - new ones, made from scratch are $50
If desired I can do a Sibelius Video, but these are not easy to see to work out individual parts
Many previous one can be found on my YouTube channel.
Please contact email@example.com if you are interested - I work quickly and will make sure the piece is playable, accurate (if I am transcribing an existing classical piece for instance) and also musically interesting!'
