It’s ukulele folks, but not as we know it. Original, inventive and very kiwi, The Nukes have been wowing audiences up and down Aotearoa and across the ditch for over a decade. They’ve performed at events as diverse as Arts and Folk festivals to WOMAD in New Plymouth, and their appeal is wide.
An important aspect of the Nukes work is visiting schools. A typical visit involves a workshop with a group of keen ukulele students (15 is the optimum number for each session - with various levels of skill and experience).
After learning the fundamental skills required to play the Nukes tunes and NZ Waiata the workshop participants then become part of the band, performing with The Nukes in a whole school show. The visit is interactive and hands-on as well as being informative, entertaining and highly engaging.
No teacher experience is required as all the resources are provided with online tutorials and Photocopiable Music-sheets.
Each year The Nukes tour the Country, inspiring thousands of school kids with songs designed for all levels, backgrounds and ages. Get in touch with The Nukes and arrange a visit your school, we’ll make it as easy as singing ‘My Dog Has Fleas’ (with flexibity to meet your needs).
