Beginner’s Session starts on Tuesday, September 15, 2015
The Beginner session is held on Tuesday nights from 6 pm. to 7 p.m. at the Grace United Church, 18 Chapman St. W., Port Dover. Dennis Murphy, retired music teacher, will cover the basics of chords and strumming downstairs in the Parlor.
Please print out the Two-Chord Ukulele Song Book. You’ll need a binder or a duotang, folder, etc. because sheets are handed out occasionally. Please look over the first couple of pages in the 2-chord booklet. You will notice that you’ll print out 3 copies of the same song (there are 6 songs). This is because each song is studied in the Key of C, the key of G and the Key of F. (We usually start with the songs in the F and C7 chord.)
If you haven’t already, you will need to buy a tuner at one of the music stores. We tune our ukes to “C” tuning, which is G, C, E and A. Lastly, a music stand would be helpful as well.
Please read our group’s Mission Statement at the bottom of the About page.
AND, to complete your ukulele ensemble, you need a yellow DUH! shirt. Shirts will be available at meetings on Tuesday nights upstairs in the Hall at Grace UC.
