About Ukulele Kids

Musical expression is made easy when Woody teams up with the entire audience to play the ukulele together!

The Ukulele Kids Project is the culmination of Woody’s vision to create a generation of young music makers. With the premise that all kids can be musicians, Woody’s work has taken him into schools and remote Indigenous communities, plus an extensive collaboration with his own kids (which saw his daughter win the ACMF School Songwriting Comepetition in 2018).
Ukulele Kids is the synthesis of Woody’s work in the children’s music genre, his 16-year career (as a outdoor, classroom and music teacher) and his passion for family music-making as his mobile ukulele school.
