My name is Paul Mansell and I'm a professional classical guitar/ukulele teacher,  performer, session musician & author based in Northampton.  I have an Hons Diploma (AVCM) on the ukulele and grade 8 (distinction) on classical guitar. As an author I am signed to two of the worlds best known music publishers - Kevin Mayhew/Hal Leonard and Mel Bay - with whom I have published 4 books. I teach classical guitar & ukulele to diploma level. I am available for lessons in person at my studio aswell as worldwide via Zoom. I am also available for concerts and workshops. 


I have published 4 books in total :  'Classical Uke', 'Ukulele School' , 'Modern Pieces for Ukulele' and '2Kulele' (a collection of ukulele duets) all available to purchase via this website.  My album 'Me, My Ukulele and I' is available on KM Records.  In 2018  UkuleleMusicInfo.com listed me as one of the top 10 ukulele players in the world.   I have over 25 years experience in the music industry & my songs have been featured on Radio 1.  I perform at concerts across the country on guitar & ukulele and in March 2019 I was the first ever ukulele player to be featured on the cover of BMG Magazine. In 2020 I was picked by Hal Leonard (the worlds largest music publisher) to present a ukulele workshop/concert at Olympia in London. I have headlined numerous Ukulele festivals and continue to do so.
