What we're about

Come and join the ukulele revolution with Melbourne's newest ukulele orchestra! Yarra YUkers is for anyone wanting to learn ukulele - the world's most sociable little instrument - and enjoy community music making. All skill levels are welcome: we'll teach you how to play and share the singing and the fun.

Learn and play Ukulele

The Retreat Hotel

Calling all shower singers and aspiring ukulele players! Part 1: 6-6:30pm basics. (FREE!) We start at 6pm with easy beginner songs and skills. Harry will show you the ABC of how to hold, fret and strum your little music box to deliver joy. Part 2: 6:30pm+ ($10) We play and sing songs for fun and to build up our skills - both with the ukuleles, with our singing together, and with arranging songs into parts to add interest. We build up sets of songs to perform either at Open Mic nights or gigs at ukulele festivals, street markets or even a couple of local nursing homes for special occasions. The ultimate aim to get so familiar with our tunes that we can stop being hypnotised by music sheets and smile even more at each other (and the audience!). ;-) Bring your ukulele! (btw, you can find more details at www.greatbigukes.com)
