Daniel has been featured multiple times in 'Ukulele Magazine. To check out one of his amazing articles (plus a video lesson)

Songwriting -  ALL LEVELS - $30 - 4:30PM


Use your ukulele to write better and more personal songs! In this class, we will focus on finding chord progressions and melodies on the ukulele, writing lyrics that are more meaningful and poetic, and finding singing styles that are best for our individual voices. Beginners are absolutely welcome, but those with a basic knowledge of chords and strumming may find it easier to concentrate on the writing and singing aspects of this class!
