There is a wealth of research showing that as we grow older, active music-making can enhance social cohesion, increase personal development and help contribute to all-round wellbeing. The aim of the group is to enable anyone who wishes to join together with like-minded people in order to learn and play the Ukulele - however, all levels of skill are welcome.
The ukulele is an easy instrument to learn and most newcomers will be able to play and sing a number of simple songs after 2 or 3 meetings. We will use song sheets with chords shown, so you do not have to be able to read music. We meet on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday for hourly sessions, which are open to anyone with a U3A membership and a desire to learn the ukulele.
