Beginners’ Ukulele Group Course
The ukulele is a lovely, small, accessible, portable instrument, that brings a smile to your face when you play it. If you are a total beginner and would like to take the first steps slowly, then give this group a try. This Beginners’ Ukulele Course is a series of 6 fun and instructive 1 hour sessions. Groups are small with a maximum of 5 beginners in any one class. Beginners only are permitted onto this course and assessed for suitability before signing up, so you will be in the company of people of the same standard to you.
“Straight away I felt less stupid that I couldn’t do it on my own. I was shown how to hold my ukulele and how to use my tuner, and taken through some chords in the first session. I really feel like I can learn to play the ukulele now after just one lesson.” Lucy
Once this course is complete, participants will have the option to join the Igloo Band at The Spring Arts and Heritage Centre, (Igloo Band). Additional training sessions available. All members, no matter how new or experienced, are also encouraged to come to our monthly jam night to meet more musicians and have a ‘group practice’, which really helps embed skills and develop musicianship. Igloo ukulele groups are fun but also instructive – you will be coached and mentored through the process of learning, and supported at every stage.
“I really enjoyed the beginners ukulele course I did with Igloo. I went to a taster with a friend, and we both got the plucking bug after that! The classes were paced really well, learning a couple of new chords and going over previous weeks to keep it fresh, and the songs were brilliant – I loved having a sing along almost as much as the playing! The teacher was open to suggestions of songs to play, and everyone in there helped each other out. Thanks Igloo – it’s encouraged me to try more tasters of things!!!” Caroline
