Ukulele Adventure Workshops

Ukulele Adventures Workshop (Ukulele Vs the Advanced Beginner) developed as Richard took on the challenge of learning ukulele and transferring his knowledge of fingerstyle techniques from the 6- and 12-string guitar to the 4-string ukulele. During this hands-on workshop in one to four hour sessions, Gilewitz applies his honed techniques of fingerstyle guitar, such as banjo-style picking patterns, classical arpeggios, tapping and harmonics, as well as a rhythmic and percussive approach. He demonstrates the art of finger substitution when mapping out a piece that will aid in the fluidity of the music. Throughout the workshop, Gilewitz offers tips and encouragement for ukulele players from 2 to 92, showing off the flexibility of the instrument and incorporating heaps of fun during the process.
