Tina Hebner’s Workshop
In part one of this workshop, Tina will show you how to play a simple version of a classical guitar song on your ukulele, entitled “Romance.” This is designed for people new to playing fingerstyle on their ukulele. In this session Tina will share some fingerpicking fundamentals that you will be able to use in other songs and will offer different levels of the song so that you can choose your playing comfort level.
La Vie En Rose
In part two of this workshop, Tina will show you how to play a simple version of her arrangement of the song “La Vie En Rose.” This portion of the workshop is designed for people with some experience reading tab and fingerpicking. There will be the opportunity to use some of the techniques that we learned with “Romance” with this song. Tina will also provide different levels of this song so that you can find your comfort level with playing it.

She has studied with a variety of classical guitarists within BC (Canada), including Capilano University and the Victoria Conservatory of Music.

You can find Tina in Kamloops where she lives with her husband, two children and two music-loving cats.
November 13 -- Avery Hill, Portland, Oregon
Avery Hill has been teaching her entire adult life, and teaching music since 2013. She grew up going to music festivals with her father and being dutifully shlepped to music lessons by her mother. After hearing one too many stories about traumatizing piano teachers and choir directors, Avery realized how lucky she was to have had such quality musical instruction, both formal and informal. As a result, Avery believes in demystifying the habits and skills of musicians, and sharing the joy of making music with others. In the classroom, she considers herself part expert, part guide, and part cheerleader.
12-Bar Blues: From the Basics to Beyond! The wonderful thing about the 12-Bar Blues is how easy it is to get started, and how quickly you can customize it and advance your technique. Join Avery Hill for what has become her specialty, learning the basics of this pattern, and some fun tricks to add some extra fun. We'll focus primarily on the Key of C as we layer on, but materials will be provided for further study in other keys.
