In 2024 there are two Ukes4Fun groups - 'Getting Started' and 'Just Jammin'
"Getting Started"(Semester 1)
“Have you always wanted to play a musical instrument? Perhaps you have played a ukulele, guitar or banjo in the past and have always wanted to get back to playing music? The ukulele is simple to learn and lots of fun as an activity with others. Using ‘Uke3A Introduction to learning the ukulele’ as a guide you will learn how to hold, tune and play simple chords on your ukulele, with a variety of strumming patterns. You will get lots of support and will have fun learning together. Before you know it, you’ll be accompanying songs. You will need a ukulele of reasonable quality, a music stand, and a tuner.”

"A group for uke players who can use basic cords and strumming patterns and enjoy getting together for a weekly jamming session, playing and singing songs, and having fun.
'Pop up' sessions guided by more advanced players will assist players keen to learn more complex strumming patters and chord progressions.
Songs played at our 'Just Jamming' sessions may be performed by interested players at U3A and local events during the year. News of learning opportunities at ukulelel musters and other ukes related events which include skills building workshops will be shared."
