Welcome to Plymouth Ukulele Society. Whether you are a seasoned Ukulele Pro or are looking to learn an instrument for the first time, this is the society for you. We are mixed ability group teaching everything from absolute beginners to fingerpicking techniques and instrumentals. Besides the teaching, we also run weekly jam sessions to relax and practise playing as a group.
We meet weekly on Wednesdays in Rolle 018 & 006 at 7 until 9pm. The first hour is teaching, where the group will (usually) be split between advanced, intermediate and beginner sessions. After the lesson, we re-group in Rolle 018 and jam.
All of these classes will also be broadcasted directly through our Facebook members page, so if you don't feel safe or our sessions are fully booked up, you won't miss out on anything.
We wouldn’t be a University society without socials. We have two socials per month, one drinking and one non-drinking. As a taste of what is coming up this year we have our traditional Hawaiian social: You had me at Aloha!, our Valentine’s Day Lonely Hearts' Quiz and Shrek Spectacular. And we'll close out the year with our Annual Spoonies Awards Night!
With the lockdown restrictions, the safety of our members is our number one priority. Because of this, many of our socials will occur virtually, but we will still be holding physical gatherings of appropriate sizes where possible!
As a society we're dedicated to giving you opportunities to show off your ukulele abilities to the people of Plymouth (whether they like it or not). However, due to current restrictions we can't perform like we normally do... But don't worry, we want to participate in lots of virtual (and totally optional) gigs, such as the video below we made for Pride that we did last year. We think gigs are a fantastic experience and only enhance your abilties as performers. In the past we've performed at the Societies Awards Evening, Plymouth's own National Marine Aquarium and the Dance Society Winter Showcase. If we get the go ahead, we're excited to perform at those too!
If you are interested in seeing what we do come along. We run a Give it a go session on the first of each month to try before you buy, so why not come along?
