Calling all ukulele owners, uke fantastics, uke beginners (in search of lessons), or plain old uke curious.
I started this group to meet other ukulele enthusiasts. We are really looking forward to building a ukulele community.
We will hold GUPPS meetups twice a week. So you will have the opportunity to come along at least a couple times a week, to learn how to play the ukulele or to practise playing in a group.
Each week (for those who would like to participate) there will be an opportunity to create an original tune for everyone in the group to learn.
Eventually we would like to offer low key performances for community, raising money for local charities. If you would like to be part of a ukulele community outreach for charity, we would love to have you in our group.
Our ukulele space has a chilled out relaxed vibe, so after meetups you will be able to stay back, hang out, have a cuppa, chat, and make new friends if you like.
All skill levels are welcome.
Why UKE? ... simply because it's a really cool, FUN instrument. It's a simple and relatively easy, way to learn a new skill that will help keep the brain functioning, AND promote and support our finer motor skills and coordination.
Now we have another reason to "Get Off" the couch and get out of the house. Learn a new skill or improve your existing skills.
Music is so beneficial for us, it can be relaxing, soothing, OR stimulating and invigorating. Kinda like yoga meditation which is also very beneficial for our health, the practise of which creates a very condusive environment in which we can stay relaxed, helps us to learn and to focus.
If you like GIVEAWAYS, COMPETITIONS, or to WIN stuff, we will hold Giveaways and simple competitions regularly.
The ukulele is a great little instrument, lightweight, compact, affordable and relatively easy to play.
Let's not forget that one very important component ... Did I mention FUN ..! YES ... it's heaps of fun. So, what are you waiting for.
Become a GUPPS join the UKE invasion and get ready to have some fun.
Hopefully at some point, we will be able to bring a little ray of sunshine into the lives of others in our community via GUPPS Uke N Fantastic charity works.
