Sally has a real love of all things ukulele. She has brought together all her knowledge of music composition and part writing to develop her own unique approach to playing the ukulele.
Her ukulele performance skills include jazz, Celtic tunes, pop songs, ragtime, bluegrass……..and more.
She arranges all songs and tunes that she performs, adding her own flavour to well known numbers with riffs, varied fingerpicking patterns, and of course her beautiful vocals that blend seamlessly with what she is playing on her ukulele.
Sally’s passion for ukulele also extends to sharing her ideas, discoveries and tips with others. She posts regular tutorial and performance videos on her facebook page Sally’s Ukulele.
Sally is available to provide online support to those who have any ukulele questions. She also runs online individual lessons.
Sally’s Ukulele is about sharing the love of ukulele with anybody who wants to enrich their ukulele journey. As a result, Sally has written two Ukulele Ensemble books of original tunes that catered for 2-4 separate parts, as well as a Ukulele Solo and Duo 1 book.
Ukulele Ensemble 1 is 94 pages of 50 original tunes ranging in difficulty for beginners to more experienced players. It is well suited to schools, community ukulele groups and festival performances.
Ukulele Ensemble 2 is 122 pages of 50 original tunes suitable for intermediate to more advanced players, although there are parts that beginners would be able to join in on.
Ukulele Solo and Duo 1 is 100 pages of 72 original tunes arranged for solo or duo ukulele playing. Beginners through to more advanced players will enjoy this book.
All books include the music score as well as ukulele tablature for soprano, concert and tenor ukuleles.
Sally has had experience with leading ukulele group masterclasses and workshops. Most recently, this was with the Goldfields Ukestra based in Bendigo, the 4-String Festival in New Zealand and the STRUM Ukuleles in Mt Gambier. Sally was also involved in the Buddies for Beginners program organised by Community Music Victoria in May 2020.
