• What we'll do

For all beginners who already know how to tune, feel comfortable holding your instrument and play the basic strums & chords (one-finger chords: C, C7, CM7, Am. Two-fingers: F. And the mighty G7). We always do something different at each of these beginning workshops. [Note: If you don't meet the pre-requisites, please consider taking the 1.5 hour crash course for complete beginners. See meet-up.]

This is a drop-in class tailored to the skill levels of whomever RSVP'd and shows up. Please make sure you can be contacted via meet-up or simply contact the host (Anne Ku).

We will work on Christmas songs that are easy to play for beginning ukulele players. We have been working on the 18 songs from our songbook, evaluating each song for correct chords and chord placement, employing strategies to learn and memorise.

Download the "workbook" and join this session - our last in 2018.

Doors open at 5:15 pm. Please knock loudly on the windows to the right hand side of the double front doors or the inner front doors. You're welcome to stay for the free jam session afterwards at 7 pm.

$20 cash on site.

Please message me or use the link on our webpage to give your e-mail address to get on our list, for handouts etc.
