Hi all

Cant wait for our next class at the new venue St Margarets Episcopal church on Easter Road.

Saturdays

10-1050

£5 per family

Remember we are on every week except the first Saturday of the month and the occasional Summer date (will keep you all updated on that- if in doubt check the Facebook page)

Here’s a picture from The Calton Centre days. As much as I miss our old venue, the new one has windows! :

Hi All

..one final post for the 2016 before i have a rest!

…heres a link to an interdisciplinary music project created over 5 weeks with P4s and 5s at Leith Primary as part of the Sounds Like Music singing and ukulele workshops. Well done to all the children who took part in the project, leading the way with their creative musical skills. Thanks so much to my co worker Nora Winstanley for her expert teaching and recording skills:)

New venue for the new year

December 15, 2016 § Leave a comment

After 5 years at the Calton Centre we are now relocating due to its imminent closure as a community venue.

But not to worry  as Happy Ears for 0-3s class starts again in the new year on Saturday 7th January 10-1050.

Its still a drop and still only £5 per session.

At St Margaret’s church, 170 Easter Road, Edinburgh EH7 5QE, a short walk form the Calton Centre.

Access via a short flight of steps and blue door to right of main church entrance.

See you all soon

Ukulele at Hermitage Park primary school

November 8, 2016 § Leave a comment

I had a great experience teaching ukulele to P4s and P5s at Hermitage Park School in Leith from the start of term until last week. Its a shame to have to leave but the project is only funded for 5 weeks per class. It is part of a city-wide council initiative to provide ukulele tuition to P4s and 5s in the classroom setting. It has been a fantastic project to be involved with and long may it continue. I received some fantastic feedback from staff and learners. See the images below.
