Ukulele Tone and Wellness

A workshop in two halves, both designed to ensure you are practicing in a way that is efficient and constructive and also in a way that is not damaging to your physical health. First, participants will be encouraged to consider their tone by paying close attention to their left and right-hand techniques, before expanding to the wider body to focus on posture, warming up, and healthy amounts of time to play.
