+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1st and 3rd Thursdays: Dot and Misspent Uke

  • The usual sessions with Misspent Uke.
  • We would like to ask for 6-9 months playing experience and offer support to anyone wishing to improve.

2nd Thursdays: Denis, Lizzie and Fiona

  • Includes more time for introducing new songs and reintroducing old songs.
  • You can use the email list to send song sheets for songs, links to video or recordings of songs, etc.
  • Please remember to bring at least 10 song sheets for new songs.
  • You can also use the email list to send song sheets to everyone and to let Denis and the rest of us know what you are planning.
  • If you want to give even more of a “heads up” you can include links to video or audio recordings of songs in your email. Some uke groups do this a lot more than we do and it helps to get everyone up to speed more quickly by practicing new songs between sessions. (Now there’s an idea for how to keep off the streets and stay out of trouble when we haven’t got a Thursday session!)
