Our friendly & welcoming music sessions are back in Liverpool – let the good times to roll with our beginner ukulele crash courses, live music jams & performances.
If you like music, being happy and learning a new skill in a friendly & welcoming environment – this is for you! The YinYan Band gives people the skills & confidence to start making joyful music as part of a friendly & welcoming collective. You don’t need any musical experience or talent – we promise you will be playing songs you love within an hour of picking up a ukulele for the very first time!
The people who have done our ‘ukulele crash courses’ felt 95% better afterwards – how good will you feel?! No experience? Doesn’t matter!
5.30pm Ukulele Crash Courses – then 6.30pm Open Jam
At 5.30pm we’ll be providing a 60 minute crash course to get you playing and enjoying music on a ukulele. We love beginners with zero experience or previous skills, don’t worry if you haven’t got a clue what you’re doing – you’ll be in good company and welcomed into our community with open arms! The people who have done our ‘ukulele crash courses’ felt 95% better afterwards – how good will you feel?!
After the ukulele crash course (5.30-6.30pm) we’ll see where the YinYan Band jam takes us with no fixed agenda…we can try tunes beyond our beginner songbook, open mic, perhaps even come up with new music – we’ve got tunes that need lyrics so poets & writers, movers & shakers welcome. And if you want to sit back and just watch you’re welcome too.
