WHAT IS UKESTRATION?

Ukestration is where contemporary songs are arranged into parts for a ukulele orchestra. The very essence of a ukestra is inclusion, so the parts need to cater for a wide range of abilities.

Need a part that can be played by old arthritic fingers? Ukestrate.

Need a part that can hold the interest of a seasoned social player? Ukestrate.

But a great part of ukestration is also incorporating good vocal arrangements.

A ukestrated song not only holds the attention of a wide range of players, but also of the audience.

All abilities welcome!
