Kia ora Koutou!
We are re-starting the “Hillview Community Beginners Ukulele Club” in term 4
Who is the club for?
Any student or family member of Hillview Christian Schoo- Please note any student in years 0-2 will also need to find a family member to learn with them. We’d love to see some grandparents, parents, stepparents, caregivers join students and learn together.
Have no skills but always liked the idea of a sing-a-long and know you’d look great with a ukulele? Then you are just the right person to say yes!
What will it cost?
You will need your own ukulele. If you don’t own a ukulele then ask around, borrow from friends, check TradeMe.
The main thing for the ukulele is that it needs to hold its tune. If you are considering buying one, then see Buying a Ukelele below.
Admin and printing fee – there will be a small booklet containing chord charts and music. This will cost $10 and will be added to your school account.
Everything else is free – the tutors are donating their time.
7:50-8am Ukulele tuning assistance.
8:00-8:30am All in learning together
Every Wednesday during term 4 starting on Wednesday 14th Oct.
In the upstairs classroom in the gym
Who is running it?
Parents Rory Jones, Miriam Fisher and Stefan Lendnal will run the club
