Making music

We will be starting from the beginning and we are very fortunate to have Ian Murray , Musical Director of Duke’s of Uke in Biggar as our tutor .

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.

Playing for Pleasure
I like playing the ukulele because it allows me to be part of a friendly team of people that welcome anyone at any level of experience to be part of their group. In addition to bringing a grin to each and everyone in the group, they make everyone that sees them perform feel happier.
