“Bob Cook” brought his love of the ukelele, and 9 ukeleles to Valemount Jan. 16th. “The ukelele has 4 strings vs. 6 strings on the guitar; it is the fastest way to get people playing music,” he says. Some 13 people took this course, sponsored by Valemount Arts and Cultural Society. A grateful participant wrote “excellent, really appreciated this entry level instruction. Bob was very fun, positive and encouraging.”
