We provide plenty of ways to get started on playing the ukulele, or if you’re an old hand on this four stringed wonder then we offer plenty of ways to join a more advanced group and take part in performances. Check out all the options below…
Ukestras meet every week around Newcastle and the Lower Hunter Valley. We also perform at many gigs throughout the year including at Ukulele Festivals, around the country and even internationally!
What will you get from your involvement in a Ukestra?
You will undoubtedly learn some ukulele technique (and songs), you will probably sing, you may end up playing for the family at Christmas time! You will probably spend less time in front of the telly, and, at worst, you may find yourself up on stage performing at festivals with a bunch of other people who have discovered the joys of making music together and who are having a huge amount of fun.
In order to participate in a Ukestra, you need to at least have some basic knowledge of the Ukulele. Don’t have that??? Then come along to one of our regular (roughly monthly) beginners workshops.
But if you are uke-ready to join a Ukestra (and most guitarists should be fine without a beginner workshop), contact us and you can get started.
Jukestra (Junior Ukestra)
We run a special Junior Ukestra (hence the name Jukestra!). Get more info here…
The Sum of the Parts (music) runs a special school Ukestra program where we teach the kids the joy of playing the Ukulele in a fun and engaging atmosphere. If you’d like to enquire about starting a Ukestra at your school get in contact with us.
