We believe that music is for sharing joyous time together. Everyone should do it, and the ukulele is the best and often first way to do it together.
Maybe you need a beginners workshop? Or maybe you want to just go to the main game – ukestras! Read on for our schedule (including for the Newkestra for newbies every Saturday morning).
The ukulele is the best first instrument (and for many people – the last!), and the best way to learn uke (and to play music) is with others. Our ukestras are designed to help you learn and enjoy in a low-stress, fun environment. We have a lot of fun, and get to have new experiences in life because of the ukulele. We are sooooo proud of the following video, shot and produced by a lovely French couple (called Groovy Banana).
The Sum of the Parts (music) holds regular 2 hour beginners classes, followed by a structured 6 week course. None of this is obligatory, because if you already play guitar then you may just fit straight into a ukestra.
This Google Map will let you zoom right into the various Ukestra locations in the Lower Hunter.
