Ukulele - Musician - Chorister Groups

Tauranga Ukulele Group

Tauranga Ukulele Group at weekly jam session
1.30 - 3.30pm  Mondays 

The group has grown from just 6 members four years ago to 30+ members today. We cover a fairly wide cross section of music, which we all contribute to. We are very fortunate to have June Pharo lead the group and she does her best to get us to play and sing the songs to the best of our ability. However the overriding theme of the group is to spend a couple hours every week having fun with music and enjoying each other’s company. Convener Eileen 07 576 3183

Tawa U3A Ukulele Group

Tawa Ukulele Group  1:30pm Fridays  Tawa Library

It is a common experience that people will often say that one of their main regrets in life is that they never learned to play a musical instrument. Playing the Ukulele is also a first-rate way of developing and maintaining a good level of mind/body coordination especially as such skills deteriorate with age. Each time the group learns a new chord on their four-stringed instruments they open a whole new range of tunes for them to learn and perform.
