Ukulele Workshop Series for Ages 8 to 88 | Classes are held one Tuesday each month, Feb-May, 2023.

Ben Hassenger’s “Next Step Ukulele” lessons are monthly sessions designed to teach a variety of techniques that will expand your skills and make you a better player. Attendees must know a handful of chords; including C, F, G7, and Am chords; switch smoothly between them; and keep a steady tempo. Materials will be provided and loaner instruments are available. (Each lesson is self-contained; register for one, two, three or all four.) 

February 21--Next Step Ukulele: Become One with the Strum. Learning to play a variety of strums makes your playing more interesting to you and your audience. We’ll explore folk, calypso, rock, polka, ska, and reggae strums along with the incredibly versatile “Benstrum” using some of your favorite songs.

March 21--Next Step Ukulele: Play (Almost) Every Song in the World. What do songs like “Last Kiss”, “Where Have All the Flowers Gone”, “With or Without You”, and “Say Something” have in common? They all use the same four chords. Learn to play every song ever written (well, most of them, anyway) with these “Fantastic Four” chords and find out how to switch keys easily

April 18-- Next Step Ukulele: EZ Tab Melody. Do you have a good handle on strumming, but would like to learn to play the melodies of songs on your ukulele? Ben will teach you how to read tablature, a way to read music for the ukulele without having to understand actual music notation. You’ll be playing everything from “You Are My Sunshine” to “Ode to Joy” by the end of class.

May 16-- Next Step Ukulele: Putting it All Together. We’ll take the strums, chords, and single-note skills that we’ve learned in previous workshops there take a well-known song and arrange a ukulele ensemble piece with separate parts for players of various levels

Taught by Michigan’s Ukulele Ambassador, Ben Hassenger, and sponsored by the Music is the Foundation non-profit. Registration Required, class size limited for personalized instruction.

"Looking forward to playing and singing with you soon-- aloha!" Ben Hassenger.
