Welcome to Choan Gálvez’s website. I’m a musician –I play string instruments, currently ukulele and upright bass are my main tools– and ukulele seller. Some times I am a writer, a programmer or an ukulele teacher.
On this website you’ll find videos, ukulele lessons, and, occassionally, links to download ukulele tabs, info on my musical activities, my discography, and, well, anything I decide to tell the world about.
The video release of the Waltz in Progress series is now complete. Time to work on the book!
I'm also working Ukes2dies, a set of 12 ukulele duets.

Sitting by the Fountain
Add my fondness for waltzes, my passion for the guitar music from the 19th century, my tendency to use unexpected dissonances, sit by a fountain, and you'll get just this.
A piece in which I take the classical tremolo guitar technique to the ukulele. Performed here by Donald Bousted.
