Welcome to the London Ukulele Project

Music for Everyone

About

Our Mission

The London Ukulele Project believes that music should be accessible to EVERYONE, regardless of their age or ability. We also believe it is a fantastic tool to promote wellbeing through building friendships and communities. 

Founded in 2018 our mission is to encourage and facilitate music-making for all, with the aim of building communities and enhancing wellbeing. Through events, donations and grants we will raise funds to provide FREE ukulele sets to schools and community organisations support folk to spread ukulele joy! We shall be providing an annual songbook for schools to register to which will include teachers workshops. We are also building a ukulele directory (If you know of any we haven’t already included we would be really grateful of your help in building this) and working on a tips and tricks section to help anyone wanting to set up a ukulele group in their community.  

We will be founding The London Youth Ukulele Orchestra for school age and 17-22 year olds. We have a number of events planned for 2019 such as a children’s festival and other fundraising events to inspire and bring community groups together.  We are starting in London but aim to support ukulele groups and communities across the UK.

A HUGE thank you to That's TV for sending the lovely Shan Robins to our event at London Waterloo Station. Unfortunately we had to change our name shortly after from 'Trust' to 'Project' in case you were confused, we were!
We are super excited about children's festival. A huge thank you to the artists for allowing us to use their videos for this trailer. To buy your tickets click on the link at the top of the page

London Youth Ukulele Orchestra

We are very excited to have founded The London Youth Ukulele Orchestra. We have a Junior (school age) and a Senior Squad (17-22 year olds)

In order to join the orchestra please send in a video of you playing a piece. This is not an audition but more so that we can see where your skills lie ie is Melody your thing or do you like to play chords to accompany your vocals? You can choose your own piece or have a go at either of the pieces that we have suggested. 

Our first workshop is 6th/7th April 2019
