Jewkelele / Ukulele: Part One - a beginners workshop
To: 18 December 2017
Ukuleles are fun and easy to play but are they Jewish? You’d be surprised!
Come to this enjoyable, informative and practical 7 week short course on the history and practice of the ukulele which includes fascinating stories of Jewish ukulele players, Hawaiian Holocaust heroes, a globetrotting Jewish/Arab ukulele ensemble and more.
You will learn chords, strumming styles, some fingerpicking and other ukulele techniques along with tales of Jewish ukulele players from Molly Picon, the 1960’s icon Tiny Tim through to modern players like the Hawaiian Jewish princess of the ukulele Brittni Paiva.
Bring along a ukulele and a clip-on tuner (or a tuner app on your phone) and learn to strum and pick out the melodies of Hebrew, Yiddish and Sephardi songs. No previous experience required.
As this is a workshop, numbers are strictly limited.
