Aloha e Ukulele Afficionados,
We are incredibly fortunate to have ukulele master, Curt Sheller, coming to Northern Virginia on Saturday, March 18, 2017. He will be conducting 3 workshops in the afternoon, and performing in a house concert setting that evening.

Get Sound Fundamentals, Good Habits, Practicing Technique, and Basic Music Theory in one compact session,
3:00-4:30: Exploring Jazz Chords on Ukulele
Explore contemporary 4-part chords on ukulele. Learn the principles of chord construction, and learn the notes of the ukulele fingerboard, so you WILL be able to create ANY chord you come across just from the name.
5:00-6:30: Ukulele Improvising, Introduction to Scales and Soloing on Ukulele
Here is a workshop for any level ukulele player on creating your own music, taking what you already know and creating music.
From a few SIMPLE chords and a few single notes you can create music and entertain yourself for hours.
Pot Luck Pupus at 7:00 and concert at 8:00 p.m.
In my opinion, Curt is one of the most knowledgeable ukulele teachers today. His two websites, CurtSheller.com and LearningUkulele.com provide a hint of his knowledge and abilities. His LearningUkulele.com website has more than 600 lessons. Curt seriously studied and performed jazz guitar for more than 30 years before taking all of that knowledge of music and guitar and meticulously applying it to the ukulele.
Seats are limited. Tickets must be purchased and reservations for workshops must be made online. Please visit Eventbrite Ticket Site to do so. The password is "Aloha".

This is a wonderful opportunity to grow as an ukulele player.

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books! — Peter Rhee
Aloha, Curt, All I can say is WOW! What you have accomplished is simply incredible! All the best — Glen Hirabayashi, The Aloha Boys
