Must know the most common 10 or 12 chords without needing to check a reference sheet.

HOST A WORKSHOP IN YOUR HOME!!
Do you have friends or family who also want to learn? Why not host a One-Night Intro or a 4-Week Workshop in your own home? And consider this: the more friends you bring, the better your chance to get the workshop FREE!!  As long as there is a minimum of 7 students in the class, the HOST will receive the entire 4-Week Workshop absolutely FREE!! All you need is a well-lit room, large enough to seat up to 12 people maximum comfortably. A large dining room table is ideal, as there needs to be a surface for students to lay their papers.

  1. HI EVERYONE,
    FROM FEB.23 TO MAR.18. THERE WILL NOT BE ANY CLASSES, AS I WILL BE WORKING IN NEW BRUNSWICK. STAY TUNED FOR NEW POSTS ABOUT CLASSES IN THE SPRING. PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU’RE INTERESTED, AND I WILL INCLUDE YOU ON MY EMAIL LIST FOR UPDATES.

    EMBRACE THE UKULELE, AND IT WILL GIVE YOU ENDLESS PLEASURE.

    SEE YOU IN THE SPRING!

    JUDY

  2. Please keep me posted re the next set of beginner classes. I am a definite newbie. I could attend at the Musideum or in Aurora area.
    Sounds like fun!
    Donna

  3. I am interested in your ukulele group lessons. I did not see anything offered in the fall, September, October in the Newmarket area. Do you offer anything for totally beginners. I do not own a ukulele what do you recommend?
    Hope to hear from you soon, sincerely,
    Marianna. My phone is # 905-841-3294.

  4. I guess we need to be added to your email list. we missed this afternoon’s newbie session in Newmarket unfortunately. This would have been right up our alley and got us started. darn.

    however, I see the workshop for newbies in Mount Albert this coming Wedensday evening at the library. It asks in the ad that we register. it does not say whether we register with you or with the library. I will check their website. but anyway, there will be 2 of us, my husband and myself on Wednesday evening. the fee is $35 each according to the ad. please let us know if this event is cancelled for any reason. many thanks. dora

    • Dora, I’ve discovered that my website messages have not been being sent to me, so I apologize for not answering from here. Thankfully, I have now got you on my regular email list, and am hoping that you and Rick will be able to attend the Holland Landing workshop. Let me know if that’s going to be a problem for you. If so, I’ll try to work something out for us.
