Music in the Community

Why the Ukulele?

Ukuleles are accessible, inclusive and super fun! In just one lesson you can learn a number of songs. They are easily transported and more affordable than many instruments.

The ukulele can be easily adapted to work in so many settings including SEND. It is a great tool to encourage singing and can really help build confidence. Research has shown that relationships are made stronger based on a shared experience. The ukulele really helps to lower social barriers whilst including all the health benefits to playing music.

It is the perfect instrument to take out into the community with many of our ukulele groups visiting care homes, schools, performing at farmer's markets.

Another reason we love the ukulele is that it is intergenerational whether you are 5 or 87!
