Ukulele

After being too long in the pandemic already, I decided to explore my musical talents. Follow my progress on this website.

In 2021 I signed up for the online Ukulele course by Brett McQueen. His lessons are so well structured, easy to follow and fun to play. Check this out and join the free four-lesson course: www.ukuleletricks.com
