3:30pm – 4:45pm workshop for ukulele enthusiasts of ALL LEVELS. Stuart is a performing & teaching artist with decades of teaching experience; he has presented his innovative & holistic music workshops at the top ukulele festivals across the US & Canada. While geared for beginners (with songs from a treasury of fun & easy tunes), there’ll be plenty of great takeaways for more experienced players who would like to go deeper into their study of the uke and music in general. Stu will review many of the fundamentals of strumming, rhythm, chords, how make practicing more fun and effective – and more! By the end of this session you’ll understand how to play with greater coordination, speed, tone, and a relaxed control. Stu will lead the group through a sequence of his “Ukulele Zen” exercises that will strengthen & improve flexibility in your hands & fingers, help you play your uke 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 & highly effective holistic practice techniques.
4:45-5:30: pre-ordered food will be brought up by restaurant staff. Call the restaurant with your order after 9am Nov 7th. I’ll post the menu, with phone #, mid October. (You may schlep beers and other drinks up the stairs, from the Wheelhouse Bar.)
