Silver Beginners Ukulele is a music session for people over 50 that will teach you the basics of how to tune, hold the instrument and play simple chords in a fun and social environment. 
Each week you will learn and play new material. The session structure is as followed:
Tune up
Warm up
2 songs
Technique check
New song

If you don’t have your own Ukulele to bring to the session, don’t worry! We have a small number of instruments available for you to use.

Learning a musical instrument has many benefits for health and happiness such as,

• Increased coordination
• Increases brain function
• Encourages self-expression
• Natural stress relief
• Improves concentration

Even if you’ve never been able to keep a beat or you haven’t picked up an instrument in years, it’s never too late! Come and enjoy a new and exciting hobby with a group of friendly and likeminded individuals.

ARC’s Silver Programme is supported by a Cultural Volunteers scheme which helps participants to attend and participate in over 50s activity.  For more information and to meet our current volunteers, please click here.
