The branch meeting entitled ‘Uke Can Do It 2 Folks”” continues to explore vast repertoire of Folk Music from Ireland and abroad adapted for Ukulele. This workshop will focus on the versatile use of the Ukulele as a teaching tool in our classrooms: from kickstarters for your beginners to solo and ensemble pieces for performances. This workshop will also support teachers in implementing a structured approach to developing Ukulele technique. Have your instrument to hand to get a grip on technique and discover top tips for teaching and learning the Ukulele. The workshop will be facilitated by Daniel Dunne.

Looking forward to seeing you all at the online workshop!

Best wishes,
Áine Balfe
