Next Steps Ukulele Saturday 3.15-4pm

This group is a continuation of the group lesson in that you will be continuing to learn new chords and techniques, developing your playing as an individual and as part of a group. We play contemporary repertoire and progress at a quicker pace than Sing & Strum.

Intermediate Ukuleles Saturday 4-5pm
This ukulele group is for adults and young adults who play the ukulele fairly confidently.
You will already know the basics and will now be looking for a challenge. We work together to decide what songs we’d like to learn and then give it a go. As well as learning well known tunes and songs you will also learn more complex strumming patterns, additional chords and explore ukulele tabs and finger picking. The group is a cross between a jam session and a group lesson.
