Other information

The ukulele is an inexpensive and relatively easy instrument to play. It is
perfect for communal music-making. This class is open to beginners and will
focus on techniques to strum basic chords to accompany songs. Some
singing is involved, but you don’t need to be a strong singer to join this

NB: If you have had some experience with ukulele or guitar, the Fun Ukes or
Beaut Ukes classes may be a more suitable group for you. Please contact
Minuk on minukrichards@gmail.com if you have any queries.

REQUIREMENTS: No previous experience required. Please contact the tutor
if you have any serious problem with normal hand/wrist movements.
Students must have their own ukulele. I am happy to give information on
selecting an instrument. A music stand would also be useful.

NOTE: Students should start within the first two weeks of the course. After the first two weeks, please contact Minuk on minukrichards@gmail.com. Students who have had previous musical
experience may be able to join. If she is willing to allow you to join, please ask her to contact the Enrolment team to request them to enrol you.

TUTOR: Minuk is an experienced music and language teacher who has been
trained in the classical music tradition. She enjoys playing music in small
ensembles and is keen to help others to gain musical knowledge and
develop technical skills that facilitate access to the joys of community musicmaking.

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.

    • 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.
