the scotland ukulele project

The Scotland Ukulele Project has been run by Sarah Farren, aka Ukulele Saz, since April 2021 but in 2024 she made the decision to step back to focus on her own teaching. Might you be the person to take up the mantel?

SUP has been growing and blossoming with style, networking with a wide variety of community groups and organisations.

Working with LGBT Health and Wellbeing, Maslow’s (refugee & asylum seeker organisation), MOSS After School Service, Universal Connections Mobilise Music Project(Youth Centre), Wise Women, Partnerships have been made with Kenny’s Music, a local music shop in Glasgow, as well as Village Music in East Kilbride, another local music shop.

We even had plans for a Glasgow Ukulele Festival.
If you’d be interested in taking on SUP, please get in touch, we’d LOVE to hear from you!

Check out some of the amazing work that Saz acheived below

SouthSide Strummers

Meet us in Shawlands. From 8.30-11pm, join us for a ukulele jam. Here you’ll be welcomed by a lovely community of ukulele players of all ages and abilities.
Bring your ukulele and join in!


Rainbow Ukes

Our LGBT+ inclusive to all ukulele jam group! In collaboration with LGBT Health and Well-being.

We meet each week. We also run beginner blocks of lessons in the LGBT Health and Wellbeing offices. These blocks are ran by members of the Rainbow Ukes group, so you feel even more welcomed when joining the jam.

We were initially funded by the National Lottery Community Fund who helped us get up and running, allowing us to deliver beginner workshops and cover our venue costs

Music SHop Partnerships

We work closely with Village Music in East Kilbride, and many of our community have been looked after when purchasing instruments there by the lovely staff.

We have a NEW partnership with Kenny’s Music, right in the heart of the city centre of Glasgow. Join us here for one off events/workshops, to purchase a new ukulele, or even some classes (coming soon.)

Mobilise Music

It has been over a year now we have been working with the Key, Universal Connections in East Kilbride, helping to deliver their mobilise music project. This is a fantastic scheme, funded by Creative Scotland to provide music lessons to kids from all walks of life for free. Kids and teens have the opportunity to perform, play in bands, record their own songs, and receive free music lessons. We have been delivering ukulele lessons to kids in Primary 6-7, and now with teenagers in high school.

We hope to be able to continue this when the current funding runs out.

This is an incredible organisation, caring for the refugees and asylum seekers who come to Glasgow. Maslow’s provides clothing and support to the community, as well as provides a free safe space to get involved in the community. They also provide a wide variety of skill development opportunities, including English classes, craft classes, yoga, self-defence and more. We donated 15 ukuleles to Maslow’s, and ran drop-in ukulele sessions open to all ages and abilities. We even received a visit from the First Minister of Scotland back in July! We hope to be able to work with Maslow’s again in the future when more funding becomes available
