This Saturday at McCabes you can hone your ukulele skills AND win a FREE KALA TRAVEL TENOR Ukulele!
Kala Ukuleles have come on board as sponsor for the Weekend Ukulele Warriors. Every week in class we will be raffling off tuners and t-shirts, giving away cool swag and every month we will raffle a fancy new uke. Your name will go in the hat once for each workshop you attend. On the final Saturday of the month we will hold our drawing for the free instrument.
This week, Daniel Ward teaches UKULELE BUILDING BLOCKS- a workshop designed for all levels, great for absolute beginners or seasoned players who want to become faster, better and cleaner on the strings. He’ll teach you great exercises designed to help you learn proper alignment, shed bad habits and play better with less effort.
