What we're about
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
