Two for One Workshop! Sarah Maisel and Craig Chee

Join us for an exciting opportunity to learn from not one, but TWO super-skilled players! Sarah and Craig will be kicking off an East Coast tour with a stop in Charlotte to work with us. They've designed a two-part workshop followed by a mini concert that, in all, will be over 2 hours of learning and fun. You will not want to miss it!

Tickets: Tickets are $28 presale or $30 at the door (cash only). Refunds will be issued for cancellations up to 24 hours before the event.  The instructors prefer to limit the class to 50 attendees, so best to buy ahead to be sure you get a spot. 

Workshop Part 1: Foundations 101 Instructor: Craig Chee

We will dive into many fun exercises to strengthen your fingers. These will focus on coordination, speed, tone control and show how they are implemented into more advanced techniques. This will push help push you to that next level! Learn more about Craig, here: http://www.craigchee.com/

Workshop Part2: Life After the Third Fret  Instructor: Sarah Maisel
We all play in ukulele groups, and we all learn to play and strum the same thing. In this class, we will focus on different ways to change chords, so you can enhance the sound of the group. This is a great class for all skill levels. Let's work together using substitution chords and possibly even chords up the neck to make your group sound even better! Learn more about Sarah here: http://www.sarahmaisel.com/

Grand Finale: After learning, Sarah and Craig will show us how it all fits together with a mini concert!

    From Craig:
    Sarah and I had such a great time on our eastern tour! Thank you so much for being a part of it. We were back for about a day and a half before jetting up to Oregon for the tunes in the dunes event. I just wanted to let you know that I have your emails on file now and will be making the follow up video as soon as I can once we get back home next week. I'll be sending another email once it's up and running with the link!

    Aloha,

    Craig Chee

    I've closed RSVPs and printed the list. Additional folks are welcome to come and pay at the door as noted. Dinner after is vegetarian potluck at the uke deck. All are welcome. Separate event posted for the dinner so we can get a solid head count and keep tabs of what folks are bringing. I hope many of you can join us for dinner.
