Every Saturday at NOON it’s a fresh festival-style ukulele workshop on an intimate scale. After teaching really big classes in Reno it’s great to switch gears and get one-on-one (or two on three) with people.
Here is the schedule thru the end of June…
5/10 WHAT THE PLUCK?! With Heidi Swedberg and Daniel Ward All levels are invited to learn plucking patterns. Simple and beautiful ways to give dimension to accompaniments, great tool for songwriting.
RAFFLE FOR KALA TRAVEL TENOR AT THE END OF CLASS!!!!
5/17 NO CLASS (We’re gigg’in!)
5/24 Tiptoe Thru the TULIPS It’s the Song that broke the ukulele! We are going crazy and resurrecting the song made tabu in the uke world by Tiny Tim. Not only do we have a heartfelt appreciation for his artistic courage, but we also agree that it’s a GREAT song with really cool changes and takes well to jazzy chord voicings.
5/31 WEST COAST UKULELE RETREAT Come find us in Asilomar! NO CLASS
6/7 UKULELE BUILDING BLOCKS Daniel Ward reprises his ever popular techniques class. If you have taken this before, don’t worry- he will teach you the next level of tricks and exercises to get you playing better, faster and more comfortably.
6/14 Here’s your chance to learn a great jazz number- why not take ALL OF ME ? It’s a great song, for your repertoire. Simple structure and chords that can get as complicated as you are ready for.
6/21 FLAMENC-A-LELE with Daniel Ward Classical Spanish guitar songs and strums for the ukulele
6/28 NO CLASS (We are in Santa Fe for a very special wedding!)
