You can play ukulele!

Face to Face Recovery College Courses (18+)

Have you always wanted to learn a musical instrument but think you are not musical? Maybe you have seen the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain and wished you could play like that!

With the right support, step by step guidance and alongside others you will learn to play at least one song on the ukulele by the end of the course. Mel has taught ukulele to a variety of people and provides a fun, friendly and supportive environment.

Playing an instrument and singing is extremely beneficial for your mental wellbeing, reduces stress levels and is fun! If you are an absolute beginner this course is for you.

Surprise your family & friends at Christmas with your newfound skill!

Please note:

  • If you have long false nails, they are great for strumming but not so good for placing your fingers on the fret board.
  • Ukuleles are usually played right-handed, most left-handed people play right handed so they can pick up a ukulele and play anywhere. Please let us know, prior to the session, if you would prefer to learn left-handed.
