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 and to 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.
Are you a school or community group looking to start a Ukulele club?
Applications for free ukulele sets are now open. Please fill out the form now to register your interest and we will be in touch.
We are very excited to be founding a Youth Ukulele Orchestra. We have a Junior (school age) and a Senior Squad (17-22 year olds)
In order to join the orchestra you will need to send in a video of you playing a piece that we have set plus a free choice piece. There will be an annual joining fee which will include 3 London based workshops, music and performance opportunities.
Our first workshop is 6th/7th April 2019
