You're totally charmed by the cheerful sound of this little instrument you see popping up more and more often? This is the place to learn to play it yourself! During this course, we enthusiastically get to work on the basics of the ukulele. We start with tuning, position and two easy chords.

Step by step, beat by beat, we move on to the real thing. We travel from the golden ukulele era of the swinging 1920s through the Beatles to pop music of today. We work on a solid foundation for strumming and even venture into picking for a while. You will learn to play more than just technical ukulele: you will learn to make real music! This course does not require you to be able to read notes or have any musical knowledge: we work by ear and using lyrics and chords.

At the end of this course, you have the opportunity to take part in the performance moment at the WISPER presentation days on 30, 31 May or 1 June, more info will be communicated at the beginning of the course.
