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 🙂
Absolute Beginners with zero or very little ukulele playing skills
Your Ukulele Teacher
Sophia has taught Ukulele for years to groups of teachers, parents and children, private lessons with adult students and the general public from all walks of life.
Your own ukulele is recommended so you can continue playing and practising at home. There are spare ukes you can borrow at the workshop if you’re absolutely ukeless 🙂
