Fun Ukulele for Beginners

Discover the joy of learning, singing and playing with this fun instrument. Playing the ukulele is one of the easiest ways to learn music - no musical experience is required.

The course has brought much joy to many people over the years, particularly those who thought they would never be able to play an instrument.

Many have also surprised themselves with a singing voice they didn’t know they possessed. With Linda’s help, you’ll discover how to play simple chords, various strums, and various playing styles.

There is no need to know how to read music or have any musical experience to enjoy this course. Those who have played uke for a while can also join in the fun.

Following this course, you’ll have no trouble livening up any gathering by playing the songs you learned at Camp Creative.

As well as regularly performing, Linda founded Hum-n-Strum Ukulele Group, plays in ukulele groups, and supports walk-ups in the mid-north coast of NSW.

Linda plays both the ukulele – she has a collection of more than a dozen – and also plays U-bass and double bass. Her passion for ukes has her playing with different bands, both live and in the recording studio.

Linda came to music as a mature adult and, as a result, knows how to relate to beginners without a musical background.

With her many years of experience as a trainer, Linda continues to bring the fun of ukeing to cruise ships, health care programs and community events.

She enjoys jamming with other musicians and loves to give others the confidence to sing out loud and play in front of an audience.
