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.
The Waltz in Progress collection for solo ukulele is now available in book form.
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.
