This group is for ukulele beginners who want to strum and sing along with their ukuleles. All skill levels are welcomed and at every session we play about 5 easy songs that are suitable for beginners. Each week, we try to learn 2 or 3 new songs and 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 (donations are welcomed to help pay for our running costs).
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!
Let's play the biggest hits from biggest-selling band ever. Songs like:
Love Me Do
Here Comes The Sun
All You Need Is Love
I Want To Hold Your Hand
Twist And Shout
and many more
If you are a complete beginner, don't worry. We always play a few simple songs at every session. I guarantee you will be able to play at least two songs by the end of the session :)
Feel free to invite a friend or two.
