"One of the most complete uke players in the world today."
~ Kamuke Magazine #2 (2011)
UkuleleZaza is a firm favorite in the European ukulele community & has been at the forefront of the ukulele revival for over 10 years. His gentle touch, right hand wizardry & tasteful arrangements have inspired, & continue to inspire, ukulele players worldwide. (For more of UkuleleZaza's bio, see our website: http://www.theukuleleplace.com/events/.)
WORKSHOP #1: Strum Fun! 1-2:30pm
Music is all about expression, & in 35 years of playing, Zaza has developed a unique smooth & groovy playing style. In this workshop he'll demonstrate his techniques. You'll learn to add color & emotion to your music with strums & dynamics that are easy and efficient, & some that require a bit more practice, like his own invention, 'The Peacock'. All ideas in the workshop work for most genres of music. Suitable for all levels.
WORKSHOP #2: Swing It! 3:30-5pm
In this workshop Zaza will teach you the basics (& beyond!) of swing music, from laid-back after-beat variations to fingerpicking swing, & of course the quintessential, fierce, gypsy jazz rhythm. Most toe-tapping techniques taught in this workshop work for other music styles as well. Suitable for all levels.
Remco says, "I've been playing ukulele for about 35 years (I'm 45 now). My main focus is 1920s/30s jazz & Hawaiian music, & I play quite a few original tunes as well. For the past 12 years, since the uke revival started, I've organized ukulele festivals, performed at ukulele festivals throughout Europe, & toured in Australia & Japan. This is my first real US tour & I'm very excited!"
