Join us for some Virtual Ukulele! 

Our aim is to help combat loneliness and use music to promote wellbeing so despite not being able to meet in person we can still meet virtually!  

 

Join our ukulele super group!

We are gathering together a number of ukulele artists to record a single of ‘With A Little Help From My Friends’ and we’d like the last chorus to be filled with ukulele players up and down the country! 

All you’d need to do is pop us an email with the heading Super Group and we will send you a backing track (this is to ensure we are all singing at the same tempo) you would then need to: 

  1. Record yourself playing and singing along to the track (we suggest you use headphones) 
  2. Use your Smart Phone to record yourself and any other family members singing and strumming along (this includes pets because they are our friends too!)
  3. Email us back your video and audio using a file sharing app such as WeTransfer 

There is no deadline as such but we are using an at home studio so unfortunately can’t accomodate 1000s of entries! 

Money raised from the single will go to charities helping those on the frontline during COVID-19 

Thank you in advance for getting involved!

Details of Lunchtime Concerts will be posted soon

There is no perfect system that allows us to play and sing along together BUT we have found Zoom to be the most effective as you are able to mute yourself so that you only hear the teacher to play/sing along with. So you really can sing like no one is listening! 

Lunchtime Concerts: Streamed live via YouTube join us for a lunchtime rest-bite wether you are working from home, home schooling or in self isolation. We will have some of our favourite ukulele artists performing some of their greatest hits! 

Over 60s: Strum/Sing along for those that already play who are over 60 years old! 

Beginner Ukulele: For all ages looking to get started on this great little instrument. Obviously you will need a ukulele for this but we will provide you with all the learning materials you need in a fun and engaging way. 

Toddler Group: For under 5s and their parents this will include a sing-along and a group chat, opportunity to share your story at the end. Being a parent is the most rewarding, amazing thing but it can be incredibly lonely so we are here to support you through this time that you are unable to socialise with your babies. (obviously chat is totally optional!) 

Beginner Kids Ukulele: aimed at 3-6 year olds. You will need a ukulele for this and a tuner or a good ear. We also recommend a pick for delicate thumbs.

Intermediate Kids Ukulele: for kids that can already play a varied number of ukulele chords. Come and learn popular songs including Billie Eilish, Stormzy! 

How to: Our how to sessions may vary but to begin we will offer How to Melody – looking at scales, using TAB learn to play well known tunes. No need to be able to read music. How to: Pass Grade 1 ukulele – looking at London College of Music’s Grade 1. Help learning the pieces, preparing for your on-line exam, tips and tricks. You will need to purchase a book on-line for this.
