This group is for ukulele beginners who want to strum and sing along with their ukuleles. Every week, we learn two or three new songs that are well-known and easy for beginners to play. Over time we will learn dozens of songs that we can play and sing to. We meet once a week (weekdays) after work hours in Kensington (3 km from Melbourne CBD). Our meetups are free.

I started this group because I believe playing music and singing are good for mental and emotional health, when done on a regular basis. Also, it's a lot of fun :) Looking forward to playing music and singing with you!

best regards, Fi
