This is for me if I...
am a singer/songwriter looking to use the ukelele as part of my act or as a writing tool.
already play the ukelele and want to get better.
play guitar but don't want to learn ukelele necessarily. This is a chance to learn from a master soloist. Bring your guitar for the lesson portion, as the ukes and guitars can all play along.
love music and the chance to hear a remarkable performer in an intimate environment and be able to ask questions.
Admission: Proceeds from the event go to the Youth Program Scholarship Fund at The Songwriting School, providing after-school and weekend songwriting and music learning opportunities for young people of writerly age. There will be a suggested donation of $20. Pay what you can. Those who pay $20 or more get their name entered in a raffle to win a ukelele.
