CANCELLED: Fingerpicking Basics for Ukulele with Lil' Rev
Learn a variety of fingerpicking patterns and how to use them to accompany others or support your singing. We'll also study arpeggios, alternate thumb patterns and inside/outside, outside/inside patterns. Students should already know some basic chords; beginners will be lost.
Lil' Rev was born and bred in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with dual passions for music and education. After college he taught music to grade schoolers at the Milwaukee Jewish Day School and served as an adjunct music historian and lecturer at The University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. After many years of performing in the Midwest, Lil' Rev left his teaching jobs behind to pursue his musical dreams full-time. Since then, he has traveled hundreds of thousands of miles, visited every state in the Union (except Alaska and Hawaii), wrote almost a dozen instructional books, recorded over a dozen albums and taught thousands of students ukulele and harmonica.
Preregistration is required and can be located on the first date of the 2-day series listed on the event calendar. Open to adults and teens.
Additional students may be added to the class if they provide their own ukulele. Please note in the comments box if you are bringing a ukulele.
