Hello and welcome to the Beginners Ukulele page. This is for absolute beginners. We meet on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of the month 2-4 pm at the Fire Station.
No musical experience is required, maybe a tendency to sing in the shower, and we have loan Ukuleles enabling new players to start learning straight away. There are no exams and you learn at your own pace. You provide yourself, your singing voice, Patience and Practice. We do not perform, only sing and play together in the session. The songs are presented as lyrics with pictures of the chords play in all the right places (and at the right time).
We are a very sociable group, we have a tea and biscuit break at half-time to catch up on what's happening locally. The music we play is quite varied, but starts with easy chords and at a slow pace. We re-visit tricky bits until they are no longer tricky.
Come along for a taster session and see if making music in the easiest way possible is for you.
When you feel ready you can move on to a solo career, or join Ukulele Singalong sessions and which has an excellent performing company 'Ukes On The Edge'.
