This first Monday back was a busy one with a number or new members joining the bronze group.
We have a couple of concerts coming up quickly here in January and February so we are going to continue practicing the songs that we worked on for the poinsettia concert as well a learning a few new ones to go with them as well.
In January we will be doing a concert on Saturday January the 17th at Oak Bay High School for the Vancouver Island Ukulele Workshop. More details will be coming about this concert.
On February 8th we will be doing another concert out in Sidney and I will be getting you details about that as well as soon as I know!
This Monday we worked on refreshing our songs from last term and introducing one of the songs we will be doing this coming term. Please continue working on the In the Hall of the Mountain King, Five Foot Two and Do you Want to Build a Snowman? for the concerts in January and February.
One of the new song that we will be doing this term is Touch the Wind. Please practice singing and strumming through the song and picking the chorus. Here is a link to Touch the Wind for you to listen to so you can get an idea of what it sounds like.
This term we will also be working on Tremelo picking so if you have a pick please remember to bring it in. If you don't have one don't worry we will supply you with one. Practice your C scale so you are ready for next week!
