Beginners Ukulele Oasis

WHAT: Located outside the SPRUKE Command Center, C Block (Indigenous Wing), the Beginners Ukulele Oasis provides a quiet haven for beginners, away from the hustle and bustle of the festival furor. All Oasis activities 'Beginners Ukulele Bootcamp' and 'Learn a Song Sessions' are free. Registration is recommended as sessions are limited to 15 participants.

Beginners Ukulele Bootcamp

Get in early and kick start your day with Julie and Keryn at Beginners Ukulele Bootcamp.

If you're starting afresh on your ukulele pathway, Bootcamp will prepare you for participating in many of the festival activities. Limber up with finger yoga and ear training, and build confidence with practice tips, and chord change and progression drills.

Focus on mastering three chords per session.
