‘Ukulele Strumming Workshop is this coming Saturday, January 20 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Hale Ho’ike’ike at the Bailey House in Wailuku. Get an introduction to the joy of making music the Ukulele Mele Way from an experienced educator and professional entertainer with a unique method of forming ukulele chords with minimal muscle strain and strumming styles taught by no one else on Maui. Play fun, sing-along songs while accompanied by a professional ukulele-bass player.
Do you play C, F, and G7 chords confidently? Then you will have more fun at this workshop. We will go beyond the chalang-alang strum (even up and down strums) and give you a taste of other rhythm patterns. There is no need to read music as we play songs by ear without looking at music.
After the workshop you can discover ways to continue learning on Maui, online, by single song lesson downloads, and/or by packaged sets of book/DVD/CD for beginners, intermediate, and advanced ukulele players.
Cost for the workshop is $10 or $5 for museum members at the door. Seats are limited so pre-registration is recommended.
Come and experience firsthand how much fun it is to “Watch. Listen. Play. The Ukulele Mele Way.”
