Free Ukulele Classes @ New York Public Library in July
FREE UKULELE CLASSES @ NYPL
+ Myself and special guests perform
Pretty exciting stuff you guys — I’ll be teaching FREE ukulele classes at New York Public Library in two locations: Tompkins Square Park and St. George. In addition to learning how to tune your ukulele, hold, strum and play the dern thing, you’ll meet a bunch of bookish and hopelessly adorably nerdy people who also call the ukulele their friend, but hopefully not their only friend. In addition to learning the uke, you’ll also see some special guest performers show off their skills.
More information to come, but here are the dates:
St George Location:
Saturday, June 30th @ 12 Noon
Tompkins Square Location:
Every Monday in July, including
Monday, July 2 @ 5 PM
Monday, July 9 @ 5 PM
Monday, July 16 @ 5 PM
ADDENDUM: The lessons for Monday, July 23 @ 5 PM and Monday, July 30 @ 5 PM have been cancelled. But I am happy to teach lessons one on one. If money is an issue, I also consider bartering and can sometimes do a sliding scale. Lessons have also been added in a third location: Upper West Side in September, more details to come. Please visit www.yourocknyc.com for more information.
I think all you have to do is show up mostly sober and bring your ukulele. It’s gonna be fun and interesting. If you want to get yourself up to speed, check out my ukulele how to series on eHow.com, buy yourself a starter ukulele here and dance on over to one of the above locations when it’s time to be there. Cool? Cool.
