4/24 Update: Glen is being called out of town on urgent family matters and has tagged in his friend, Nani Lowery, to sub for him at this Saturday's event. Nani is an enthusiastic teacher of the uke at Victor Litz and is known throughout the area. Glen will lead his Uke class during Community Day this year.
Glen Hirabayashi’s Ukulele Workshop
The Ukulele, while accessible and inexpensive as an instrument, lends itself to many different uses in music. It is even said that if a song sounds good on the uke it means it is well composed. Glen will take the group through some history, some practical applications and some exercises to improve your approach to this powerful instrument.
Uncle Glen was born a long time ago on O'ahu. His first musical instrument was the ukulele. He is a master of " kanikapila" a relaxed style of uke that lends itself to many styles of music. Glen and his group, The Aloha Boys, have played at Carnegie Hall, the National Mall, the Kennedy Center Millenium Stage, the Barns at Wolf Trap, and in Rheims, France, Toronto, Canada, New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Charlotte, Southern California and Hawai'i.
All who register for this workshop will be entered in a drawing to win a Kala ukelele!
