Other information

The ukulele is an inexpensive and relatively easy to play instrument that is perfect to accompany singing groups. Students will need to have some experience in ukulele or guitar to be able to participate confidently in this intermediate group. The ability to interpret chord diagrams and confidence in basic strumming skills will be assumed in class members. Some singing is involved, but as we will be focussing on ukulele playing skills, you do not need to be a strong singer to join this group.

This is an intermediate group where more experienced members are encouraged to share their skills with the group. Less experienced players will be encouraged to participate to the best of their ability and use the group sound to build confidence in their musical skills.

REQUIREMENTS: Students must already have a ukulele, be able to tune the ukulele and understand chord charts/diagrams. For face-to-face classes, a music stand is also useful. Students will need to be able to print out the song sheets or download the song sheets on to a reading device.

TUTOR: Minuk is an experienced teacher who has been formally trained in classical music. She enjoys playing music in small ensembles and is keen to help others to gain musical knowledge and develop the technical skills that facilitate participation in community music-making.

How to Enrol

On-line: after bookings have opened

On-line enrolments are preferred as this significantly reduces the amount of back-office work for our volunteers.

  • Login to the U3APP.org.au website.
  • Go to the Courses & Enrolling page.
  • Scroll down to find the course that you are interested in.
  • Does the course have spaces available?
    • Click on the course name to go to the booking page.
    • Click on “Book for this course or event”.
    • You will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.
  • OR is the course shown as FULL?
    • Click on WAITLIST.

Paper Enrolment Form: before bookings open for First Semester

  • Obtain a paper Enrolment Form either from the Office or by printing an online copy available here.
  • Complete the paper Enrolment Form and submit it to the Office.

The start date for acceptance of paper Enrolment Forms for first semester is published on the U3APP website and in the e-Bulletin. Enrolment Forms received before this date are treated as though they had been received on the start date (ie there is no advantage to be gained by submitting early). On the start date and thereafter, paper Enrolment Forms are numbered in order of receipt.  Paper Enrolment forms are processed by U3APP volunteers on the same day as on-line bookings.

If your enrolment is successful, you will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.

If your enrolment is unsuccessful,  you will receive an email telling you that you have been waitlisted.
