Beginner & Intermediate Uke W-shops in Newtown, CT
Join Jumpin' Jim at this beautiful farm in Newtown, CT for two uke workshops in one Sunday afternoon. Here are the details:

Beginner Ukulele Workshop: “Strummin’ With Jumpin’ Jim”
Jim Beloff (Jumpin’ Jim songbooks; The Joy Of Uke DVDs) introduces you to the basics of playing the ukulele including holding, tuning, strumming and making the chords. We will play through a dozen well-known songs learning new chords, strums, tips and techniques along the way. Bring a GCEA soprano-tuned uke and be ready to have a lot of fun. At the end of the workshop you will have made a new life-long friend—your ukulele!

Intermediate Ukulele Workshop taught by “Jumpin’ Jim Beloff”
This workshop takes off from where the beginner workshop ends. More challenging arrangements and chord solos are introduced with sophisticated jazz chord changes. Also, finger-picking patterns and performance techniques will be highlighted. Time will be set aside at the end of the workshop for those who would like to perform a song.

Each workshop $25 or both for $45. See uke there!
