Margaret Crichton has been singing and playing instruments including ukulele, guitar and harp, for more years than she wants to admit! After a few years teaching secondary school and many years performing in kindergartens around Victoria, she discovered Community Music Victoria and began conducting choirs, currently leading two.
When ukulele started becoming popular she decided to offer a class at a local neighbourhood house. One quickly grew to three classes and a performance group, another at a second community centre and one more at a third, then another, and another, as well as workshops at festivals and events.
Margaret loves introducing people of all ages with no musical experience to the fun of ukulele. Playing in a group, big or small, is rewarding for students, and Margaret works with players of all levels of experience, usually all in one class!!
