Rocket Ukulele Review
What is it?
Rocket Ukuele is an online course that claims to be able to teach you how to master the ukuele in just 30 days.
It was fairly difficult to find any legitimate reviews for this product but from what I can discern it seems to be a legitimate course that on the whole people have been happy with.
This course is very much for beginners of the ukulele, and even if you already play another instrument you may find this course a little too simplistic. A couple of reviewers who could already play the guitar said that in hindsight, they could have probably taught themselves the ukuele without this course, as there are a lot of free video tutorials available online. For complete beginners however, this course seems to serve its purpose and is a good starting point.
The main benefits of this course is that it’s a cheaper alternative to private tuition and the online nature of it allows budding musicians to practice as and when they can- perfect for those with busy schedules.
No where could I find anyone that said they ‘mastered’ the ukulele within 30 days, but everyone agreed that they were able to learn a few songs and get to grips with the basics of the instrument. For some, this level was suffice and they were able to continue using free online tutorials to improve their skills. Others however were dissatisfied with the level they had achieved and felt that the website had been misleading in their claims.
Is it a scam?
The official website claims that you will become a master of the ukulele after just 30 days and even carve yourself out a ‘hugely successful career’ from playing it. These bold claims are guaranteed to disappoint, as clearly the level of proficiency that you achieve is determined by many factors, including natural musical and learning abilities and how much time you put into practicing. This course should therefore not be seen as some miracle purchase that will turn you into the next global superstar, it is rather a good place to start if you wish to introduce yourself to this instrument.
The official website claims that the course follows ‘revolutionary new techniques’ and ‘scientific methods’, but no where was I able to find out any more about this, or what these methods included. Whilst they may be genuine claims, without further explanation, the credibility of the website is called into question.
The promotional testimonials are also a little suspicious, and a few people on the forums said this was enough to put them off. In a nutshell, the exaggerated sales pitch of this online course lets the product down, but if you can see past that it’s a decent beginners course.
