Thanks to Rachel for sharing details of these additional classes. Ed
For anyone interested in learning to play the ukulele, Quay Arts in collaboration with JC Grimshaw, has been running a very successful course for the last five weeks on Saturday mornings.
Due to the massive popularity and over-subscription of the course, Quay Arts has re-booked JC for a three-day summer workshop in August as part of their Summer School programme, and two five-week courses follow in the autumn: one for beginners; one for intermediate players. Monthly tick-over sessions are scheduled for the summer.
Background on the expert
JC is a multi-instrumentalist. He developed a passion for the ukulele as a teenager with a particular interest in the hot jazz era.
Over the last few years JC has enjoyed teaching ukulele to his own two children, who have performed with him and ‘The Gramophone Party’ on various main stages on and off the Island. Today his workshops incorporate all manner of styles.
As well as being a respected performer both locally and internationally, JC also has years of experience as an instrumental teacher, as well as teaching composition at Platform One.
Quay Arts’ Summer School programme
Quay Arts’ Summer School programme will be announced shortly with tickets made available for all workshops, including Ukulele with JC – all abilities are most welcome but under 16s should be accompanied by an adult.
