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.

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

"Our group only started in January and we are all amazed that we have learned so much in such a short time. Our experience and ability covers a wide range but we enjoy being in the group and we leave our sessions feeling that we have achieved something - and full of good intentions to practice more!"
