Come and join international ukulele star and teacher: Ralph Shaw. This class will improve your ukulele playing while learning favourite Christmas songs.
Seasonal songs from the Vancouver Ukulele Circle Christmas book (which you can download at no cost) will be used as a vehicle to learn: Strumming Techniques, Simple Picking Patterns, and other easy-to-understand ideas. The goal is to make your festive repertoire sound great as well as being satisfying and fun to play.
(IMPORTANT – you need to download and print the book using the link below. Some books will also be available to purchase.)
You will come away with a package of seasonal songs that you can strum for all your future Christmases!
Everyone and all ages are welcome.
