Experience Levels

To help make HUG accessible to players of all levels of experience and ability we are coding the workshops in four bands – Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced and “Available to All”. If for example, if you are a beginner you are welcome to attend intermediate and advanced classes but be prepared to perhaps take more of an observer role and use it as a chance to learn what’s available in the uke world. Similarly, if you are an intermediate or advanced player you are welcome to attend any session but perhaps think of it more as fun revision and relaxation.


• Sam Muir in Concert – Classical ukulele playing by this virtuoso
• Cera Impala – Showcasing her unique and inspirational style of playing
