Our Philosophy & Mission
About the London Ukulele Project
Founded in December 2018 by teacher and musician Tara Maysey, we aim to support and encourage people to build communities to help combat loneliness and promote wellbeing.
We believe that music should be accessible to EVERYONE of all ages, regardless of age, race or background.
We aim to raise funds to donate ukuleles to schools and community groups promoting wellbeing. We also aim to run workshops and events affordable and open to all. We have founded The London Youth Ukulele Orchestra for school age and 17-22 year olds.
We are starting in London but aim to support ukulele groups and communities across the UK and hopefully one day have ukulele projects all up and down the country.
We were delighted and grateful to have been awarded a grant by The National Lottery Community Fund in 2019 which got us going.
