Play Ukulele By Ear Vol. 1 (All Levels-74 minutes)
Get the most out of your ukulele experience by learning to Play Ukulele By Ear. This entertaining and informative workshop will give you the tools you need to tap into your innate musical abilities. Playing by ear is easy, fun, and it will propel your understanding of how music works to a new level. This workshop will make you a better listener and student! All skill levels welcome, however, knowledge of basic chord shapes (C F G7) is helpful.

Comments from Jim D’Ville’s Play Ukulele by Ear Workshops:
*“A fabulous, logical and freeing way to approach music.”
“Now I will use my ears! Duh-why didn’t I think of that?”
*I learned more in an hour from you than I have in one year of trying to learn by myself.”
*”I’m a music minor in college, and I went through music theory classes, but I just never thought about music like that!”
*“Lots of ‘Ah-ha’ moments!”
It should be lots of fun.
We’re looking forward to seeing you all on the 14th!
