Happy NEW YEAR ! ~ 2014

Start this new year off with a TWANG!
Mark TWANG Levine that is... and Learn to play the Ukulele!
Learn to play with others of 'like' skill sets. In a safe, fun, nurturing environment.
NOTE: Recommended for ages 12 and up
Regardless of your musical background, by the end of this one hour workshop you will:
• learn how to hold and strum the ukulele
• learn three different chords
• play 9 different songs before the end of the workshop
We will be using an overhead projector for the songs.
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 15 years. Known for his humor and Ukulele jokes, Mark really puts the 'FUN FACTOR' into learning Ukulele.

COST: There is NO COST for this workshop.
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.
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!

Remember without “U” it’s just kulele!
