What is Uke Lift Project?
Uke Lift Project is a Bristol-based ukulele school founded by ukulele teacher Danielle Greenwood. Danielle designed the project to lift confidence and wellbeing through the power of music.
Originally from Texas, Danielle's travels brought her to the UK over 25 years ago – she loved it here so much that she's been living in England ever since!
Prior to setting up Uke Lift Project, Danielle accumulated a wealth of professional work experience teaching and delivering community projects in both mainstream and SEN schools and settings for over 20 years.
Danielle has been teaching ukulele to adults and children for more than 10 years in both private and public settings and she is experienced in teaching music to adults and children of all abilities. Her group lessons have ranged from 3 to 50 pupils!
A working musician, Danielle has been in many touring bands over the years – her last band was the all-female, 20+ members, rock/punk ukulele band The Pukes. However, she's now retired from the touring life and has taken on her new mission of sharing the gift of music.
Since arriving in Bristol in the early 2010s, Danielle has also founded the Bristol Ukulele Festival, held annually in the city to celebrate the love of the ukulele.
