Ukuleles are a great introduction to the music world for young people. They are suitable for little fingers and you can sing while you play – a good tool for songwriting.
Since 2004 Play It Strange has distributed 2,800 ukuleles to NZ schools as funding has allowed. The demand and enthusiasm is high.
To date our providing ukuleles has been driven by funding from David Richwhite, The Mazda Foundation, The NZ Community Trust and the ASB Community Trust, Youthtown and the Sir John Logan Campbell Residuary Estate who have all generously supported our programme.
The NZ Rockshop in association with Play It Strange have come up with an “education only” price on on a ukulele. Register on the NZ Rockshop Eduction website to find out more
