Event

Ukulele Zen: "All You Need is Love...and a Ukulele" (Eugene OR)
Do you love the ukulele? Do you love the music of the Beatles? Then this is the event for you!

The music of the Beatles and the ukulele are like peanut butter and jelly; they simply belong together. Is it that John Lennon played a ukulele? Perhaps it's because George Harrison often kept his car's trunk full of ukes so he'd be prepared for a spontaneous uke jam with friends! Whatever the reason, it's clear that the music of the Fab Four fits perfectly onto the fab four strings of the ukulele.

Over the course of this fun & soul satisfying workshop, renowned ukulele teacher and performer Stuart Fuchs will lead a spirited and deep immersion into the music of the Fab Four.  By studying the music of the Beatles you'll gain an understanding of many genres of music including blues, rockabilly, RnB, Soul and their own original style of songwriting.

You'll play Beatles' tunes from the band's early and late period with easy-to-play ukulele band arrangements. Stu has created his own arrangement with different parts to accommodate all levels of playing ability. Stu also teaches some of the most famous riffs and melodies, and shares fascinating facts and stories about the band's legendary history.

This workshop is open to beginners and up - some basic experience playing ukulele is recommended.

Schedule for the evening:

6:30 pm  Arrive, tune up, meet up
7:00 pm  Ukulele Zen Workshop
8:30 pm  Solo concert by Stuart Fuchs
