Direct from the Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow, Finlay Allison, senior tutor with Glasgow Fiddle Workshop, brings all the fun and accessibility of the ukulele to life in this series of workshops.
Finlay will provide a ukulele for you to try and will have some basic models for you to buy if you’d like to take one home and carry on with your playing.
Ukulele School is primarily for those with some experience of playing the ukulele. You should be familiar with the chords of C, F, Am and G7. Finlay will be teaching you how to play in other keys as well as developing strumming techniques with hints, tips and explanations to help you build your skills and raise your game!
The four workshops (two on Saturday; two on Sunday) are designed so that players should be able to advance through each one as their skill level and confidence builds. However, you can opt to take as many or as few as you wish!
We also offer a Complete Beginners one-off session on the Saturday morning for anyone keen to give this verstatile instrument a first go!
