Christmas Workshop was Merry & Bright!

Posted January 2, 2014

Thanks to everyone who joined our Ukulele community at the North Carolina Ukulele Academy for the 2013 Christmas Music Workshop. Beginners and experts alike added some holiday jingle to their repertoires (all while enjoying hot apple cider, coffee and the fresh baked graham cracker brownies that Kent’s nearly famous for.)

Did you miss it? Awww…well, all’s not lost. Get our workshop book, Christmas Ukulele, Hawaiian Style and get strumming! Maybe it’s a little too early to start thinking about next year’s Christmas workshop but, hey, at least promise yourself to add ‘more ukulele playing’ to your list of New Year’s resolutions.

Mele Kalikimaka and happy holidays to everyone from all of us at the North Carolina Ukulele Academy!
