The Making Music 4 Life team has been blessed to have taught music to thousands of people over the past 30 years​ and we truly appreciate the joy that has infused our lives through sharing our love of music with you all​!

We are taking a much needed break to recharge, reflect, and strategise for the future. Our regular course schedule has been suspended for 2024 but there are plenty of resources on this website for ukulele players and enthusiasts.

We are continuing to bring you incredible ukulele events througout the year including upcoming Uke-A-Holics Anonymous Sing & Strum Socials in March and May, special workshops & concerts by visiting artists including Cynthia Lin Down Under! in April 2024 and much more so please stay in touch!

​We thank you for being a part of our musical community and for your continued support throughout the years​. We truly hope you continue to make music 4 life!

Making music is a truly rewarding way to spend your time and we believe everyone should have the opportunity to make music to feel great, regardless of age or ability. We are strong advocates for music education across the lifespan and extremely passionate about teaching music to adults who may never have had the opportunity to learn an instrument before.

Since 2011, we have delivered a clear and structured learning pathway to help ukesters progress on their ukulele journey. Our short foundation level courses, specialised workshops and performance ensemble (the Lightly Strung Orchestra) helped individuals continue to develop once they gained playing experience.


In 2024, as we strategise for the future, we will continue to hold our Uke-A-Holics Anonymous Sing & Strum Socials for those who really want to sing, strum and have a blast with ukulele friends! We will also continue to hold special workshops and events from visiting teachers and artists. We are SUPER excited to announce that Cynthia Lin is heading down under to present a very special concert & uke jam in Sydney.  Click for more details about the Cynthia Lin gig on 7 April 2024!

Based on the hundreds and hundreds of people we have met on this ukecrazy journey, we know for sure that playing the ukulele can certainly "spark joy" in your life and connect you to some of the loveliest people you could ever meet!

We truly hope you are able to experience for yourself why playing the humble (but MIGHTY) ukulele may just be the happiest instrument on the planet!

Uke on! Make music 4 life!
