Join us for an Intro to Ukulele class this August

Joel Jacques Ukulele Extraordinaire at the Ottawa Folklore Centre

Come find your musical voice through learning to sing and play the ukulele.  This introduction to the Ukulele is for those picking up the ukulele for the first time.  Students will learn to play the ukulele as an accompaniment to voice and sing popular songs together in a group setting.  We’ll cover a variety of accompaniment techniques to get you playing interesting and fun versions of songs you know and love. At least one song per week will be covered (yes, we can get you playing a song in a week!!!).  Though the focus will be on playing songs together in order to learn the basic techniques of the ukulele, certain fundamentals of music will be introduced and worked through so that the ground is broken for future musical study, whether through further courses or through independent study. 4 weeks, Wednesdays, 6:00-7:00pm, Aug 1-22, $68 members, $80 non members. GUKE12.08B1

Friday Featured E-Store Item: Earl’s 5th String Suspender Capo Earl's 5th String Suspender Capo

A fantastic alternative to railroad spikes or other fifth string capos, Earl’s 5th string capo wraps around the back of the banjo neck via an elastic strap (aka suspender). It holds on to the fretboard near the 1st string and has a rubberized foot that pins the fifth string down wherever you want it.
