A couple of weeks ago, Simone suggested playing the ukulele as an alternative to using CD music as backing for children's songs during kids' teaching time/Sunday School activities. Read about it here.
Because she told me she could teach me how to play the ukulele in ten minutes (perhaps a slight exaggeration?) I am not sure whether twelve hours of tuition is a bit much.
I checked out the tutor's website here. His name is Ukulele John and apparently he travels around the state teaching people how to play. Some of his ukuleles look very funky. I suspect they won't be the cheaper "settled in" ones.
It looks like fun. I think I will probably do it.
