Choan Gálvez

Ukulele composer, player, and teacher - Barcelona

I'm now offering online ukulele lessons, mail to hola@choan.es and schedule a free test lesson.

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.

50 Miniature Studies for Ukulele is a set of pieces created to develop diverse musical performance abilities and fingerpicking techniques.

Print and digital editions are now available from The Ukulele Bookshop.

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.

I'm also working Ukes2dies, a set of 12 ukulele duets.

You can follow me on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
