Ukulele Sessions in Whitleigh

Ukulele Sessions in Whitleigh

 

UKULELE SESSIONS

Whitleigh Arts

I very much hope to start our very own Ukulele Sessions at a local venue, possibly The Albemarle Inn, Budshead Road (which would be free) but also we have other options if we pay to rent out The Salvation Army room/s. This option, would of course, mean charging a small fee to rent a room.

The Albemarle Inn are very keen for us to use their premises on a Monday or a Tuesday night but I must also consider our local children who would like to learn to play the ukulele too!

If we decide to use the Albemarle (free) it is only fair that each ukulele player, no matter what age, buy at least one drink. I say this because we only have one pub left in Whitleigh, they need to survive as a business.

Considering that children may want to learn to play the ukulele, we need to agree on a suitable time. Time enough for adults to get to a session if they have been at work all day and time for the children to finish their homework before they have fun learning to play the ukulele.

What time would suit you?

6.30pm -8.30pm or 7pm – 9pm

COSTS

The ukulele is one of the cheapest ways to learn music.

Free if we use the Albemarle

Rooms for hire at the Salvation Army, Lancaster Gardens. From £10 per hour (costs would be split beteen players)

Hall & meeting room for hire at St Chads Church, Whitleigh Green. From £12.50p per hour.  (costs would be split beteen players)

Photocopying music (Sadly I do not have a photocopier/printer) approx 10p per photocopied sheet of music. Or print off your own music.

Music stands and table top music stands cost from approx £12.00p

Folder and plastic sleeves for your music. Very cheap from Cheerybuys, Whitleigh Green.

PLECTRUM

Some players do not use a plectrum, but I do use a plectrum. Plectrums cost from approx 20p each from your local music shop.. A soft and pliable plectrum works well with a ukulele.

TUNING A UKULELE

Here is a great link that will help you tune your ukulele. This is the one I use and is very easy to understand.

You can also buy a clip on tuner (batteries needed) from your local music shop, ebay or Amazon. Here is a link to show you what they look like and how much they cost.
