This is a NEW module where Daphne will be sharing her song writing approach and  techniques. So whether you are already writing songs on your Ukulele, or would like to start writing songs, this 5 week module is perfect for you.  Each week there will be a teaching section of the class and a section of the class where you will be welcome to bring a song that you are working on and Daphne will give feedback and tips on how you may bring the song to life even more!

Daphne Roubini is also a jazz vocalist and singer songwriter with her bands Black Gardenia and Ruby & Smith. She’s an English major, poet and published author. Here are some reviews of her songwriting, she believes that the songs pick you and you just need to be ready to hear them.  This class will give you those tools!

Of the Ruby & Smith album ‘a ukulele album’
“the best part of A Ukulele Album are the nine originals, with equal measures of traditional and new.” Kenny Berkowitz, Ukulele Magazine. Read whole review

Of the Black Gardenia album ‘Lucky Star’ (#2 in the NACC jazz charts)
“Transporting listeners back to a time of martinis, lounge suits, and hazy cigarette smoke, all with an audio clarity that eludes remastered editions of jazz classics, Black Gardenia offers authoritative modern versions of those staples. The fact that Roubini’s originals are indistinguishable among the stacked lineup is the biggest compliment of all.”
Georgia Straight, Read whole review
