DUE TO THE CORONA VIRUS ALL SCHEDULED SESSIONS ARE NOW CANCELLED UNTIL AFTER THE SUMMER RECESS.
We hope to restart on 18 September and, all being well, we will do this.
In the event of things not being back to normal by then we will email everyone.
In the meantime, the ‘UKULEERS’ will still be keeping in touch with each other with items about the ukulele, including self help videos. What a good time to learn to play the ukulele! You know you always wanted to play a musical instrument – and it’s one of the things you can do to keep dementia at bay.
Even under Coronavirus Lockdown, there is still a great opportunity to learn, remotely, how to Play Ukulele! thanks to Leader, Tony Crimlisk. Contact Tony for more information – see above.
The A&O U3A ‘Ukuleers’ is a friendly, fun, group who meet together to sing well-known and popular songs accompanied by strumming along with our ukuleles. Playing a musical instrument is known to keep the mind active and to help avoid some of the mental problems of older age, and the ukulele is one of the easier instruments to learn. Anyone who already plays the Ukulele a little is very welcome to join us, as indeed are those who just wish to ‘sing-a-long’, see what we do, and maybe try it out for themselves.
Almost all our members have only learned to play over the last year or two.
Maybe, after seeing how easy it is to get started and how quickly you can progress, you too will “get the uke bug”!
The UKULEERs enjoyed performing at the 15th Birthday Celebration on 13 October 2018 –
