- DURATION 60 mins
The Ukulele Project uses the ukulele as a tool to tackle loneliness and promote wellbeing so we are super excited to be running a workshop for Mirthy. We will demonstrate the ukulele, its accessibility and joy! We will look at how it can be used to play melody, rhythm and harmony. How it can be used in mindfulness exercises and we will talk a little about the history and why it is growing so much in popularity. If you have a ukulele sitting at home then fabulous! Otherwise sing along or sit back, relax and listen to some joyful music.

Meet the Host, Tara Maysey from the Ukulele Project
Tara Maysey is passionate about the Ukulele and honestly believes she has the best job in the world teaching the ukulele to people of all ages from 3 years old to 87! From classrooms, to online to pubs and festivals you can’t help but smile when you hear the ukulele. In her 12 years of teaching music Tara noticed that the ukulele was brilliant at bringing people together and the friendships made inspired her to set up a not for profit with the aim of tackling loneliness one ukulele at a time!
Preparing for the Event
For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).
We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
What if I can’t make the event?
If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.
Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?
Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy the event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.
How do I watch the live event?
Rest Less events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.
How do I sign-up for and access the recording? (Recorded events only)
Book the event as normal (as if you are attending live). After the event ends you will automatically receive a post-event email with a link to the recording, as long as the event was recorded. You do not need to do anything else and there is no separate booking process for recordings only. Please note it can take up to 24 hours for Zoom to process recordings.
