I offer a variety of finger style instrumental workshops for players of all levels – from beginners to advanced. Popular workshops include How to Read Tab From Scratch, First Tunes, Turning Chords into Arpeggios, Campanela Style and Classical Ukulele. Workshops cover a range of technical and musical aspects and can be tailored to suit the needs of specific groups depending on time restrictions. Some time is also devoted to playing together as an ensemble. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss a classical ukulele workshop for your group or event.
Here are some recent festivals and events where I have both performed and given workshops:
The Grand Northern Ukulele Festival (GNUF) is one of the biggest ukulele festivals in Europe. My Classical Ukulele workshops at GNUF 2016 & 2017 covered three main areas: 1.Arpeggios, 2.Study piece & 3.Repertoire piece. For the 2017 festival I composed a study piece called Gnuffly. Here’s a Youtube video featuring Gnuffly:
