You don’t need to read music as most of our music is in the form of lyrics and ukulele
We have group members with varying abilities but all contribute to the overall sound of our
ukulele group.
We encompass all genres of music from many decades right up to the present time; the
main thing is to have fun while improving your playing ability on this wonderful instrument.
The ukulele is currently experiencing much deserved popularity and we have already been
asked to perform locally.
Who knows, in the future, we may even aspire to become a Ukulele Orchestra!


I have been involved with music in one form or another for as long as I can remember.  My main instrument is Guitar but I also play ukulele, 6 string banjo and keyboard.
I was the vocalist for the rock-n-roll band “Ogri and the Cafe Racers” in my late fifties and currently sing with the Bourne2Sing Male Voice Choir.
With the growing popularity of the ukulele and knowing how much pleasure this instrument gives, I decided to form a group with the U3A in Verwood.
So if you’re interested in playing this amazing versatile instrument, don’t procrastinate, get in touch and join in!
