Workshop – So you’ve got a uke? Now what?

This workshop is designed for complete beginners who have just got a ukulele and do not know where to begin, or for those who know a little but would like to go over the basics again. Donna will teach you the absolute basics of how to hold, tune and strum your uke and how to read chord diagrams and make the chord shapes.
By the end of the workshop you will have played several 1, 2, 3 and even 4 chord songs. The hand-out will allow you to take your new uke away and start practising. This workshop will give you the basic skills and confidence to join in the local ukulele jam or just enjoy playing at home more.
During this one-hour course you will;
• Learn how to tune your uke.
• Learn how to hold your uke.
• Learn how to read chord charts and play the chords.
• Learn some basic strums.
• Learn to play some songs.
