Ukuleles are small, 4-stringed instruments are played all over the world by young and old alike, as a starting point to build creativity, unity, uniqueness, friendship, and community. In this hands-on workshop, everybody can learn the basics of how to play the ukulele. Ginalina will teach students (and teachers) how to hold the instrument, how to play a few common chords, and a standard strumming pattern. By the end of the workshop, everybody will have the skills to play a song together, and the group may even decide to compose their own song! Workshop is available in French/English, and in English.
