In this workshop Stu will also lead the group through a sequence of his “Ukulele Zen” exercises to strengthen & improve flexibility in your hands & fingers, help you play your ukulele in an ergonomic way & lead to a pleasing tone, playing single string melody lines, and more. You’ll sharpen your ears & your playing through simple and highly effective holistic practice techniques that Stu has used for decades.
