Hello, Ukulele Nation,
I’m posting this today so that all my friends, former students, folks who contacted me with interest in ukulele, and local strummers will know about an exciting and unique opportunity to expand your ukulele skills and horizons. For the last four years, I have had the privilege of studying Hawaiian music (via Skype) with a kumu (expert/teacher) ukulele who lives on Hawaii Island. And now I have the honor to announce that Kumu ‘Ukulele Irma Kahikina DiCenzo is coming to Ashland to teach an ‘ukulele workshop and to lead a Hawaiian-style kanikapila (jam session).
All the details are below. But please let me add that this rare event, when we will have a chance to talk-story and play ukulele with my wonderful teacher, will allow everyone to participate in the traditional, direct teaching of Hawaiian culture and music, that is, we learn from watching the kumu and trying to imitate her. Plus . . . Irma is fun and likes to laugh!
To reserve your space in the workshop and/or kanikapila session, or if you have any questions, please click on the Contact tab and send me an email. Also, note that Kumu has asked for a ‘sliding scale’ for tickets, and finally — all tickets will be sold at the door.
