Enjoy making music

Due to the popularity of our first Ukelele group we have formed this second group.

Our aim is to make this as informal as possible, we want members to enjoy every session and progress at their own pace. Success will be for everyone in the group to play with confidence and enjoy this wonderful instrument.

Ukulele fascination

The ukulele has also been widely celebrated for its increasingly social side.

The ease of strumming along to sung melodies and playing together has made this little instrument a popular choice as a favoured instrument, and has also led to the formation of ukulele clubs, orchestras and social groups around the world.

Join our group

Join our group if you are a beginner or more advanced and want to improve. The Ukulele only has four strings rather than a guitar's six, so chords are easier to make.

It doesn't take long to learn a few basic chords and then you are flying.

Playing for Fun and Enjoyment
Practically everything about the ukulele––its small size, lightweight frame and easily pressed-down strings––makes it one of the easiest instruments to play on the planet. If you’re looking for a starter instrument for fun, the ukulele is going to be your best bet.

Group Leaders Comments

"We just have fun, learn something different and build self-confidence in playing with others. We all make mistakes but even that is an enjoyable element to learning. It's a fun group"
