Just bring your uke! I’ll bring all other needed materials 😉

Here’s a little bit more about what we’ll be playing: Avalon, a tune written in 1920 and considered a classic in swing and jazz circles ever since. You’ll leave the workshop with a complete arrangement for the uke accompaniment of the song at hand, perfect for framing your singing, if you’re into that sort of thing. Not a singer? No worries, I’ll include plenty of strumming techniques, right-hand rhythmic ornaments, and uke-friendly swing approaches. It’s a lot to cover in an hour and a half, but I also want to touch a bit on the chord melody arrangement as well, if we can.

Get a quick preview of the song we’ll be working on, and take a look at the charts ahead of time, if you like!
