The ukulele, commonly known as the uke, originated in Hawaii in the 19th century and become very popular on the mainland USA during the early 20th century.
The uke is currently enjoying a renaissance in popularity and can be found in various styles of music including folk, rock, jazz and classical. The uke is a simple instrument for beginners to learn, yet also expressive and expansive in the hands of the masters.
Seth, our clinician, will demonstrate some basic chords and strums for beginners, and then progress to advanced techniques including how to arrange chord-melody style, combining melody and chord accompaniment on one instrument.
