Workshops and learning opportunities in and around Austin:

Dr. Jill Reese’s Workshops, March 1, 2019, 7:30-10:00pm
Join Dr. Jill Reese for two great ukulele workshops.

Session 1 – Uke and Strum (You Can Strum!)
When you can play a funky strum pattern on your uke, you’re a one-person rhythm section. Explore strumming from simple rhythms to syncopation in the context of folk, pop, and rock tunes. By the end of the session, we’ll be jamming with the musicians in the rhythm section of the original recordings. Some experience with basic chords on the ukulele is helpful, but not necessary.

Session 2 – Jam with the Band
Experience the joy that comes from performing with your favorite bands. We’ll begin with 3-chord tunes and–in no time–we’ll be jammin’ along with Beach Boys, Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Beatles and more! Challenge level for each tune will vary, but everyone will be able to play and sing along regardless of expertise.
