Music Month update

It’s week 3 of NZ Music Month, and there’s still a whole lot more to come at Auckland Libraries.

In last week’s ukulele lesson, we worked our way through Iko Iko and Pokarekare Ana, and tried to come to terms with the D major chord.

For all our students who would like to learn more, check out these links:

  • Kiwi Ukulele
  • Ukulele Hunt
  • The Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra
  • Ukukele method books at Auckland Libraries

  • And if you don’t yet have a uke, here are a few good ideas:

    The Rock Shop has ukuleles from $35 to $1299.

    Mr Hewitt at Hewitt's Fiddle Shop makes Kapono, some of the most beautiful ukuleles around. See his site here.

    And of course there’s an interesting range of new and pre-loved ukuleles on Trademe.

    So what’s coming up?

    The Grey Lynn Ukuladies continue to tour, playing Grey Lynn Library on Friday 27, and Blockhouse Bay on Sunday 29!
