Mon Sep 23rdBeginners UkeleleNew Group commencing
Beginners Ukelele

This new group is aimed at both absolute beginners and those who may already have a ukelele but havent really played very much.
You don't need to read music as we use chords which will be learnt over the weeks, progressing from the simple to slightly more complex over time. The idea though is to have fun , have a sing and learn some easy numbers we can enjoy.
The initial meeting is Monday 23rd September 4-5pm in the Mayfield Room at the Memorial Hall and will cost £1.
We will then meet every week at the same time.
