Ukulele, upright bass - 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.

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.

You can now pre-order your copy, print or digital, of 50 Miniature Studies for Ukulele

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.

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