Continuing Sessions Post-Covid

Zoom Class from Binary Studio

Thanks to further easing of restrictions we can now have conservatively up to 50 people in the studio based on the 1 person per 2 sq m rule and Covid safe checklist. Please remember if you are feeling sick or have any Covid symptoms, do not come to our uke sessions, just log in via Zoom if you need your weekly uke fix! Our Thursday 10am class is always available online. To get the link, purchase your ticket at trybooking:

Easing More Restrictions

As of 17th November, in Queensland we can have 1 person per 2 sq m in indoor venues, so our studio is virtually unlimited again, with 120 sq m of audience space we can have up to 60 in the studio. So if you have friends who have held off joining us, you can assure them that we are now allowed to go up to full capacity.
Happy strumming!

Covid-19 Easing of Restrictions Stage 3

We are now allowing a total of 30 people in the studio space at one time, in line with the small venue limit of 1 person per 4 square metres. So over the past few weeks we have had almost full-houses in our Thursday morning 10 o’clock class.
We are continuing to allow Zoom logins for the convenience of people who are remote or in self-isolation.
You can join the Zoom meeting with the same credentials as for the last few meetings. These are provided via email when you purchase a ticket. We would ask everyone to please either phone in (3488 2230) or purchase a ticket online if they wish to attend the 10 o’clock Thursday class, so we can limit the numbers in line with government guidelines.

Stay safe and please observe social distancing when you are in our uke classes. Please email me or phone through any requests for songs to be performed at our sessions.



Easing of Covid-19 restrictions – Classes now Live!

As announced by the Queensland Premier this weekend, as from noon on 1st June we are at Stage 2 and are therefore able to have gatherings of up to 20 people in our studio.
This means that our Thursday 4th June classes will have the following timetable:

9am Beginner Ukulele Class – live in the studio (pay at the door).

10am Beyond Basics Uke Class (up to 17 in the studio plus 3 presenters, or join the Zoom Class online if you prefer).

In order to comply with restricted numbers, all tickets will have to be pre-purchased via the Trybooking website, with a limit of 17 Studio Tickets available for purchase. So you can buy a Zoom Ticket or a Studio Ticket.
The Trybooking link to book tickets is:

Although you won’t be able to hear everyone, you will hear and see me as I lead the session and display the uke charts on your screen in the usual way. You can enter requests in the chat window, and I will pause between songs for comments etc.

In the studio, we will be observing strict social distancing, and the studio is disinfected prior to the session.
