Dec 2017, I teamed up with the lovely folk at Work-Shop Brisbane to produce a yummy Christmas themed ukulele workshop for those closet players ready to embark on their musical quests.
It was a great turnout (although I forgot to take pictures with actual people in them) and fabulous to see such a diverse mix of people coming together to learn such a fun and simple instrument. Ukulele really is for everyone, whether it be someone picking up music for the first time, or a seasoned musician ready to have a little fun on a new instrument.
We did all the favourites such as Feliz Navidad, Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer and Jingle Bells (which I think was the most popular as it only had 3 chords!!). And even had a little girl jumping up to sing 'Jingle Bells' into the microphone as her new backing band played along ;)
The finger picking section of the workshop was one of the most popular activities and one I was very impressed by everyone picking (excuse the pun) up very quickly.
I'm very excited to announce I'll be doing another 2 workshops with Work-Shop Bris (in a new an exciting location) January (10th) and February. January is going to be focusing on mindfulness and Ukulele, a fun way to switch off from the stress that may arise in the year ahead, and February is going to be themed with Beatles songs!
