You will learn the essentials of how to play including basic chords, strumming techniques, finger picking and a new song to play every week. The classes are designed to give you the confidence to play just for yourself, for friends and family or to join a ukulele group.

Di Moore is a musician, performer and teacher who is passionate about sharing her love of the ukulele.

Mondays 6.15-7.15pm at Bluebird House (Cnr Carr and Swanston Streets, South Geelong). Commencing 22nd July until 26th August for Term Three 2019.

Subject to minimum numbers.

Workshop outcomes:

  • How to hold your ukulele

  • Basic chords

  • Basic strumming and finger picking techniques

  • Songs to play

  • You will be encouraged to sing as well

If you don’t already own a ukulele, there will be ukuleles available to lend but only for use while at the workshop. Please advise when enrolling if you require a loan ukulele and if you are left handed. 

It is recommended that you have your own ukulele to be able to continue to practice at home. If required, quality ukuleles can be purchased through Oxygen Music in Moorabool Street. Pop in and see Riley and mention you are doing this workshop.

Di has been teaching ukulele in Geelong for the last three years and started her own business "School of Uke" at the beginning of 2018. She offers private weekly lessons on Monday and Friday out of the Music Studio at Bluebird House.

After moving to Geelong in 2015, the Ukulele started to play a major role in her own musical life, so Di decided that she wanted to share her love of this incredible instrument with everyone who wanted to learn. Di trained with the Canadian Ukulele Virtuoso, James Hill, for three years through his Teacher Certification Program and is a qualified Level 3 Teacher. 

Di is also an experienced performer. One of her favourite memories is playing and singing My Island Home with the group “Ukestralia” at the Hawaii Ukulele Festival in July 2016.  She loves to encourage her students to get up and perform at the mid year and end of year concerts.

Di volunteers in the Children’s Ward at Geelong hospital playing the uke and singing for the patients and also leaves a couple of ukuleles in the ward for any kids who might want to have a play during their stay at the hospital.
