Bring your young family to Sage Gateshead and join our fantastic Family Ukulele Band!
With no previous experience needed, our fun and skilled musicians will take you through the ukulele basics, introducing new chords, strumming patterns, techniques and songs, with the band developing and learning something new every visit!
We need lots of family musicians to make up our band, and there will be lots of ukuleles that need strumming, percussion instruments that need playing and songs that need singing that will suit every family member at every musical level.
These classes promote the development of musical skills such as basic music theory, fine motor skills, rhythm, movement, ensemble playing, singing and pitch awareness in an engaging and enjoyable way.
Activities and content will be aimed at 5-8 year olds and their carers/parents, but older and younger siblings/family members/friends are very welcome too. Each family member will need a ticket.
Ukuleles and percussion instruments will be provided but you’re very welcome to bring your own instruments along.
