Danny Wootton’s ever popular Ukulele for Beginners course is back and will cover basic chords, strumming and music theory.

The course will feature guest appearances from Arthur Jeffes of Penguin Cafe and the drummer Tom Ffyfe who will pop in to help with rhythm. We will learn how to play well-known pop songs as well as simple medieval and renaissance chord progressions and plucked melodies.

Ukuleles sound particularly great when played together. We will work out simple arrangements for the whole class to play together, and the course will end with a party and performance.

We are all musical and music is universal. The ukulele is an ideal way to re-engage directly with the love of music we are born with.

Here is a little video of the last beginners ukulele class performing at the end of term party, so you get a bit of an idea of what to expect:
