A ukestra is an ukulele orchestra. Our ukestras are fun, low stress and entertaining places to learn music together. Teachers from The Sum of the Parts (music) are experienced musicians who encourage you to find your own level of achievement.
Making music together is the perfect antidote to the feeling that you will never be able to play music. You can. What’s more, you’ll enjoy the company of others.
Talk to us about the various options that exist for performing. It will push you that little bit further (if that’s what you want).
