Ukelele 101 Workshop

Ukulele 101 Workshop
Thursday, August 9th at 6:30 pm

Registration required. For those ages 10 and up. You don't have to have an instrument to come, but if you have one, you can bring it.

Instructor David Firman will help us learn all about ukuleles. This hands-on workshop is geared more towards the beginner, from someone who has never held a ukulele to those who may have been playing a little while.

You'll learn a variety of different chords, strums, as well as some songs (everything from Woody Guthrie and the Beatles to oldies rock).

David is a founding member of the Kansas City Ukesters and has been performing and teaching throughout the Kansas City area for years.

When the creator of the world dies, suddenly everything is in flux. Upon his death, a mysterious video is released, in which the founder reveals that he has planted an Easter Egg into the game. This Easter Egg is the key to his fortune. When Wade Watts discovers the first clue, he throws caution to the wind and becomes obsessed with getting the egg.
