You will learn everything you need to get started, and be able to participate fully in ANY upcoming Dallas Ukulele Headquarters jam session 

WHO: The Workshop will be lead by none other than, Mark 'Twang' Levine, who is the creator and founder of Dallas Ukulele Headquarters. Mark is self taught and has been playing for some 10+ years. Known for his humor and Ukulele jokes, Mark really puts the 'FUN FACTOR' into learning Ukulele.

WHAT TO BRING: Ukulele, having your own tuner would be a plus, but not required. If you don't own a Ukulele we do have a few extras that we will bring, but please advise us in your RSVP that you will need to borrow one of ours. smile

SO, if you've never strummed, or are new to the instrument. Have played the guitar but not so familiar with the Ukulele, this workshop is for you. Let Mark's passion for the Ukulele inspire YOU! But most of all, come and have FUN!

    Thanks to all who are bringing ukes to share. We also have a limited number of ukes for this purpose. Our goal is for everyone to have a uke to try! If you said you needed a uke when you signed up for the workshop, we have you in our "uke count"! See you there!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
