The Silver Strings Ensemble

Join in the fun of the Silver Strings Ensemble on Sydney's Northern Beaches. If you LOVE playing the ukulele and singing your heart out while developing your skills along the way then this weekly group is for you!

The Silver Strings Ensemble is an ukulele group for people looking for opportunities to develop their skills in a relaxed and fun weekly session.

 

If you love playing and singing popular songs while developing ukulele techniques at an easy pace, this group is for you!

Through ongoing participation in the SSE, and following completion of the Intermediate Course, participants in this group will gain the necessary skills and experience to graduate into the Lightly Strung Orchestra if so desired.

Anyone who can play the uke and wants to play for fun each week can join the SSE, however, it is highly recommended that you have the following prerequisite skills before joining:

  • Have completed an entry or foundation level Beginner Course or equivalent

  • Have an understanding of the foundation (open) chords in first position

  • Can play a variety of different strumming patterns (desirable but not compulsory)

  • Can finger pick (desirable but not compulsory)

Ready to proceed? To receive EFT payment details or find out more details about the LSO, please email your enquiry to janine@makingmusic4life.com or phone us on 0410 466 546.

Fees are charged on a term by term basis and we offer a range of passes to suit your schedule:

  • 10 Class Pass: $150 (attend up to 10 day OR evening sessions during the term)

  • Unlimited Pass: $200 (attend as many daytime and evening sessions as you like during the term)

  • Trial class: $20

  • Casual rate (pro-rated x # weeks): $20

  • Please note that NO payments are processed during class time. If you know you will be away during the term, your casual term fee is still required IN ADVANCE for the pro-rated number of weeks you will attend.

There may also be a fee for the Silver Strings Ensemble Songbook if you are joining partway through the year.

There are no refunds or makeup classes for missed sessions. However, if there are exceptional circumstances whereby a participant is unable to attend rehearsals for an extended period of time, this situation can be discussed with the musical director and arrangements agreed upon.

If you postpone your enrolment to a future term within 5 days of the term start date, or after you have commenced a term, you will incur a $20 administration fee.

Weekly sessions will run on Mondays and Thursdays at the Montgomery Theatre, 10 Endeavour Drive, RSL Anzac Village, Narrabeen.

Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 restrictions surrounding social gatherings and forced closures of most of our teaching venues, SSE sessions are temporarily suspended at the War Vets. However, effective 23 March 2020, online videoconferencing sessions will replace our scheduled session times. Please email me for more details on how to join in these sessions. In the meantime, stay safe.
