Do You Play Ukulele?
Take your playing to a higher level and learn how to really strum your ukulele. Uke 66 is offering a strum workshop featuring Erin McGrane and Jeff Freling of the Victor & Penny show, an award-winning duo from Kansas City. The workshop is at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 19 at The Library Center, 4653 S. Campbell Ave. in Springfield, MO. Registration is $25 and the class size is limited to 20 participants. Pre-registration is required, and the fee is non-refundable.
Erin and Jeff, who perform nationally and have some of the most popular workshops at ukulele festivals, will show you the difference between just strumming and driving the rhythm during this 90-minute workshop. Learn simple but effective strumming techniques and delve into the styles of swing, hot jazz, and gypsy jazz. This workshop is suitable for any player, but you should feel comfortable performing a basic strum on your ukulele.
Rock steady rhythm is the backbone of every good song, so register now, bring your uke, and jump on the train!
