The ukulele is a BRILLIANT first instrument for young and old and probably one of the most fun and accessible instruments on the planet! Once you pick it up you'll be hooked! Even if you have absolutely NO musical background whatsoever, it doesn't take much to learn the skills necessary to start playing the songs you love.
Over the past 10 years, we have developed and designed a clear and structured learning pathway to help you progress on your ukulele journey. This includes a variety of short beginner and intermediate level courses as well as a regular ukulele ensemble (The Lightly Strung Orchestra) to continue your development once you have gained some playing experience.
We hope that playing your ukulele brings you hours of endless fun, nurtures your spirit and opens up a whole new world of social connections with ukesters in like-minded musical communities. Join us and experience the "happiness factor" that comes with playing the ukulele - it's UKE-tastic - and we hope it inspires you to MAKE MUSIC FOR LIFE!
"I absolutely loved these classes, plenty of fun energy, upbeat, a great pace and kept me engaged along the whole way. I was amazed how quickly I managed to pick up the concepts quickly. I've virtually had no musical experience prior so was a bit apprehensive that I may not be able to keep up."
- Pam, Beginner Uke Student
"I now feel more confident with chord changes and strumming. The course was very enjoyable, because you made it fun. There was no pressure, but it was still stimulating and challenging. You have excellent organisational and interpersonal skills. I also enjoyed the social aspect, meeting new people. I think I am now ready to go on to Stage 2."
