Thursday Night Ukestra 7-845pm A face-to-face (mask-to-mask) ukestra at the Carrington Bowlo with Mark, Jane and John. Slightly more rambunctious (that’d be the beer/wine factor vs. the daytime coffees). A younger demographic doing the sorts of songs that younger folk like. This is a mid level ukestra with mixed level repertoire (easy and hard), for all levels of players. We broadcast this session on Zoom so you can zoom in if you choose to.
Saturday Morning – Newkestra 10-11.45am A face-to-face (mask-to-mask) Newkestra at the Carrington Bowlo with Jane, Mark and John. Perpetually focussed on being a little easier for newbies, whilst still providing challenges for the more experienced. We also broadcast this session on Zoom to a bunch of online regulars.
Sunday Morning Newkestra –10-11.45am A face-to-face (mask-to-mask) Newkestra at the Carrington Bowlo with John. This is the best option for those who are new to the ukulele. Back to basics, with some balance for the more experienced players. There is no zoom broadcasting.
NEW TO THE UKULELE?
Maybe you need a beginners workshop? If you haven’t played a stringed instrument before (primary school recorder does not count) then we suggest you try our beginner session first.
WHY THE UKULELE?
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.
