Master Class - UKULELE PHILOSOPHY AND THE POWER OF DIVISION

This workshops will deal with fingerpicking techniques, songwriting and arrangements.

Learn how to make real music with two or more ukuleles together, or to involve other instruments and develop the potential of our uke.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

All Level Workshop - UKULELE PHILOSOPHY and RIGHT HAND RUMBA (AND CHA CHA CHA)

A workshop for everyone!  Lorenzo will teach the "thinking forward" method! This is a philosophical way of thinking which will allow you to play like a professional.

Next he will teach how to play 2 wonderful strumming techniques - the rumba and the cha-cha-cha. You'll find out they are very versatile, and they have many modern applications.

The rumba, allows you to amaze the listener with the speed of your hand and the hits on the body of the uke, is perfect for playing dance music!

And if you just slow down it becomes the perfect strumming for ukulele songs like "Somewhere over the rainbow/what a wonderful world". Then if you change the accent of the strum it becomes the ultimate reggae tempo.

The cha-cha-cha is perfect to give a wonderful Latin flavor to songs like "Besame Mucho", but it's imitation of the sound of the guiro on the fingerboard makes it perfect for songs such as "Stand By Me", "Goodnight Moon" or "Sign your name".

This promises to be a fun filled workshop with something for everyone!
