Stu Fuch

Ukulele Zen Technique

As you work through Stu’s band arrangements, this workshop will also offer you a rock solid foundation in ukulele techniques of rhythm, melodic playing & musicality.  Ukulele players from a beginning to an advanced level will benefit from the focus on a holistic and effortless “Ukulele Zen technique".  You’ll play lots of fun songs and learn many all purpose grooves, deepen your rhythmic sensibilities, and improve your tone and timing.  In addition you’ll learn great tips for both right & left hands - teachings that can quickly remove roadblocks and help your music to flow in a more natural and effortless way. 


Stuart's fun & compassionate teaching style is based upon his own method of "Ukulele Zen, a path of holistic music education that uses simple and accessible practices from the wisdom traditions of yoga, meditation & qigong.


Stu has practiced mindfulness meditation for over two decades and has facilitated these techniques at retreats, festivals and holistic centers worldwide.  The work and they are FUN! 


"Ukulele Zen" has helped thousands of people cultivate good technique through a focus on body alignment, breathing & relaxation techniques - all of which create a deep & joyful workshop atmosphere of supportive, community, deeper musicality, and a non-judgmental mindset for your music journey.

Strumming and Timing

We first learn with the fretting hand, but then the skills are really in the strumming/picking hand. With targeted workshops we help people develop their timing, their ear for good accompaniment, their strumming and their picking.

From feathering to emph-a-sis or emphas-is, from travis to inside-outside, strumming and picking is the bane of many an ukulele player’s existence.

Our strumming and picking workshop(s) use a variety of songs and genres to ac-cent-u-ate the positive and e-lim-inate the negative.


Mark Jackson

Ukestration

Our ukestras are fun, low stress and entertaining places to learn music togetherfrom experienced musicians who encourage you to find your own level of achievement.

Making music together is th perfest antidote to the feeling that you will never be able to play music. You can.  What's more, you'll enjoy hte company of others.  The very essence of ukestra is incusion, so the parts cater to a wide range of abilities. 

You will learn some really col and fun riffs and licks that make the songs sound so much more!

But our real aim is to leave you with new skills, techniques and knowledge, and a new sound that you and your audiences will enjoy for their diversity and musical skill.
