As you know, if you have read my previous post, before Christmas, I bought myself a Ukulele and signed up to a night school course for beginners at the Quay Arts Centre in Newport.

I started to explore YouTube for lessons before going to the class, and as with most subjects on YouTube, there are some great videos and some not so great.  They got me started with holding it, hand position and a couple of chords.

I have been to the night school for the last 2 weeks, and there are about 10 of us in the class.  This is a good number, because if there where many more, the tutor would struggle to get round us all.

We have started off with learning to play ‘Yellow Bird’ and ‘Hush Little Baby’ and this week we have progressed to ‘Paint it Black’ and ‘Yellow Submarine’.

Its great fun and I have met some lovely people that are in the same boat as me.

I would definitely recommend either getting individual or group lessons like these, rather than going it alone.

First of all let me apologise for the lack of recent posts on this site.  The reason for it is that both Carole and I took the decision about 18 months to move house to the Isle of Wight.  To some of you this is probably not a big surprise if you know us, as we have spent so much time over here that we where almost residents a year ago.

Well now we have moved to a small town called Shanklin and we live a whole 10 minute walk from the seafront and loving every minute of it.

 

Loads to do on the house, but that’s for the future.  Now I must build the business back up and start getting my name out there, this side of the Solent.

I am playing next week at the Freshwater Resource Centre for their Christmas party, these are a great bunch of senior citizens who definitely know how to have a laugh.  Plus they have invited me to join them for Christmas Dinner that day, how cool is that.

I have already met a few potential new students that are looking to learn or improve, and I am doing Skype/FaceTime lessons with some of my Leicester students too.

I have 8 Island weddings in the diary for 2019, but there is loads of room for more.

I will be aiming to put regular posts up here, so please feel free to comment or contact me if you are interested in my services.

 

I look forward to speaking to you soon.
