Kevin Carroll, director of the Austin Ukulele Orchestra, returns Nov 1 to the Anacortes Uke Community: last fall he provided us a very well-attended workshop on Ukestration. His 5pm community concert at the Anacortes Senior Activity Center will follow 2 workshops for uke players:
🌴🌺🎶 Intro to Hawaiian Ukulele 3:00-4:45 PM Hawaiian turn-arounds in multiple keys, authentic Hawaiian ‘anticipated” chords, and some sweet songs will be the focus. (Advanced beginners thru intermediate).
😎🎼Ukulele Jazz Band 1:30-2:45 Join this jazz-based workshop and learn about swing rhythms, syncopation, 6th and 9th chords as we dig into a classic Duke Ellington tune (Which one?? Find out at the workshop!!) And, discover ‘chord secrets’ and put it all together as we tackle the jazz standard Autumn Leaves. This high- and low-G friendly workshop will have something for everyone, but is best for Advanced beginners and beyond.
