Do you want a fun ukestra that takes you beyond the beginner stage, but keeps you learning, rather than just strumming?
Saturday mornings at the Carrington Bowling Club is for you!
Over the years, the Lower Hunter’s ukulele community has grown, in both size and skill. So much so that some people are scared to join (even though they are always welcome).
Every Saturday we run the Newkestra which is more for beginners, or for those want to go back and review stuff (chords, riffs, songs, vocal parts) that they might be struggling with in a regular ukestra. Every 2-3 months the Newkestra will reset and go back to the beginning. The songs will be easy, but there will still be learning and progress. And just like any other Ukestra, you can still go along to any other Ukestra at any time.
The Newkestra is a slow and steady Saturday morning Ukestra that is strumalong, but is still a learning and teaching environment that is naturally fun.
When? Saturdays – 10:30am – 12:30pm
Where? Carrington Bowling Club (first building on your left after you cross the Throsby Creek bridge). They open early (7:30am), with breakfast and good coffee. Zoom in on the below map if you need a location (and of all the other ukestras in the area).
How much? $17 casual or ask us about our uketens ($135 for ten sessions that must be used within 12 months)
Who are the teachers? Jane and Mark each run weekday or weeknight ukestras. They will be joined for the Saturday Newkestra by longstanding Ukestrans John Wallace and Kathy Wilson. We’ll mix it up a bit so you get a great diversity of session teacher/leaders.
Come join us on Saturday mornings, and/or at a weekday/night ukestra. You are always welcome.
