(Primary-age ukulele group)
The ukulele is a great instrument for children to learn and is enormously fun and popular - you can learn to play in a group and sing at the same time! Having only four strings, chord shapes are much easier than on the guitar, and once you get the hang of learning how to read a chord chart there's loads of great repertoire you can learn.
We are looking to start a new ukulele club for primary-age children. If you have children who would be interested in taking part then please get in touch via the contact us link below.
The tutors are Anna Patteson and Lizzie Wood, both highly experienced teachers and workshop leaders.
Anna's aim is to make music fun, keep the energy flowing and cover different elements of music learning to make confident, better players and singers. As well as learning to play the ukulele, the sessions will build children's general musicality - including pulse, rhythm, pitching and maybe some songwriting.
Just some of the schools that Anna and Lizzie have delivered ukulele and music in - Mousehold Infant School, Nelson Infant School, Wensum Junior School, St Francis of Assisi Primary School, Clover Hill First School, St Michaels Junior School, Hingham Primary School and Rackheath Primary School, Queen's Hill Primary School.
Want to buy a ukulele? Some cheaper model ukuleles are better than others, we would commend an Octopus Soprano Ukulele as a good beginner model. We use these when delivering lessons in schools. These range from £24.75 to £32.99.
