• What we'll do

This is the first of ten consecutive weekly workshops for non-beginners. Please visit the EVENTBRITE website for details on registration and payment. $150 advance payment for all ten sessions (excluding Jan 19th MLK weekend). Drop-ins are welcome at $25 per session.

Minimum 5 required to run. If not five, then start date will be postponed.

Unique opportunity to play music in what was the oldest chocolate factory in America. The Walter Baker Building is home to working artists. The Common Room contains a temporary exhibit launched from the annual Holiday Stroll.

'Anne Ku’s strumming workshop focused on an oft-neglected but essential part of playing the ukulele. She demystified the process by breaking down (and slowing down!) each strumming pattern and having us practice it repeatedly. She also applied each strum to a specific song or songs so we were able to immediately apply our new skills. Later she sent us a handout containing all the strumming patterns so we could reinforce the techniques at home. Best of all, Anne is a friendly and relaxed teacher who treats her students, even the rankest beginners, like musical colleagues. I can’t wait to take her follow-up workshop.'
