What’s it all about?

Have you ever wanted to learn a musical instrument but haven’t been game since your primary school music teacher told you not bother?

Playing the ukulele is an ideal way to learn music – it’s not too tricky to learn a few chords (with which you can play a lot of songs). It’s also a great instrument to sing along to and it’s pretty darn cool – you can’t argue with Elvis.

So come and join the wave of ukulele popularity that’s sweeping the world. Quick, before it goes out of fashion and the banjo takes over!

What will we cover?

– A basic history of the ukulele
– How to tune your ukulele
– How to hold the uke and good posture habits to get into
– How to play a few chords on the ukulele and how to read chord charts
– Different strumming patterns

And you’ll learn to play some songs with your new chords, strums and fellow uke-mates!
