Yanti facilitates students learning to connect with their minds, bodies and spirit and create connections with others through learning to play ukulele.  Over the course of this year, Yanti has taught a revolving door of students who are interested in learning to play ukulele and share together in community.  Yanti’s group ukulele classes have grown from 3 students to over 30 students with many more beginner inquiries.  Yanti teaches group ukulele classes because there is a need, in our community and provides group classes with students from 5 – 85 years old.  Yanti believes in the positive effects of community through music and  her fun, patient teaching style is a fit for most ages and musical abilities.

GROUP CLASSES

With the inspiration of Jim Wiggins, founder of the  The…Penticton ‘Ukes’Community Strumalong and Sing
ukulele has hit Penticton…  The music stores can hardly keep them in stock!  The group’s  motto is “Having ‘Fun’ Making Music Together!”  Because ukulele is a super fun instrument to play, and goes hand in hand with singing, more and more people are looking to learn how to strum along with their favourite song.  Yanti’s beginner and intermediate classes can help make sense of strum patterns and practice chord progressions.  These informative practice sessions are held Monday afternoons at the Martin Street Art and Music Gallery.

Contact Yanti for more details.
