What will you learn?
In the first hour, you will learn the basics of tuning by ear and uke holding, some basic chords, strumming and playing a song or two on your ukulele. The second hour will be spent adding a few more chords, different strums, and practising in dyads for peer feedback and a bit of fun. At the end of the two hours, you will have learned basic ukulele playing skills you can build on - with a smile on your face and a song in your heart :)

    We had a wonderful time and it went really fast! Lots of fun learning the ukulele with tuning, holding, hand and finger positions, jimi jimi strumming, ukulele chords and transitions, then fitting the singing in as well. By the end of the workshop we had learnt 5 uke chords and sung a heap of 3-4 chord songs! What a great bunch of happy ukers! Thank you to all who came to the happy uke workshop. Much gratitude and thanks to Sue and Mitsuo Okano for being such gracious and generous hosts at their lovely venue. They know how to Uke & Spread the Love :)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
