Uke Lift Project has been running Uke Clubs in primary schools in Chester and Bristol since 2013.

 

As well as developing musical skills, learning the ukulele in a group can help children develop their skills in other areas. 

 

With experience in teaching whole-class instruction, Uke Lift Project provides curriculum-based teaching of the ukulele for a full class.

Uke Clubs take place after school or can be arranged during the lunch break, if requested.

 

Each session is 45-60 minutes long and is suitable for groups of up to 15 students.

 

Students will learn how to hold and strum their ukes, make chords, play and sing well-known songs and create their own compositions.

While teaching members of Uke Club the basics of playing the ukulele, Uke Lift Project has also conducted performances with the children in their assemblies, giving the students a chance to show off their newly-acquired skills.

 

Some of our groups have also produced a CD with an original song composed and performed by the students to raise money for charity.

Uke Lift Project communicates directly with parents via email to confirm term dates, collect club fees, etc. which is less admin for school staff. So, if your child is interested in learning how to play the ukulele, get in touch with Danielle to find out more.

Danielle is awesome - she is so friendly and relatable as an educator and as a person! Her classes are always fun and she's the reason I first picked up a ukulele.
Ukulele Club was not a thing at the school at all but Danielle got the headteacher to invest in buying the children instruments and once it started, they all really loved it!
She's been spreading the musical love through education ever since and it's more than a job to her - she absolutely loves it and it's very evident in her practice!
