Ukulele workshops all day, daily ukulele jams and open mics, and an all-star concert each evening. In depth ukulele classes taught by Lil' Rev and Tony Anthonisen. Lil' Rev will help you take your intermediate—advanced ukulele playing to the next level. By the end of Tony’s classes, beginners will be able to comfortably play ukulele songs and join jams.
Lil' Rev - When ukulele players talk about the best uke performers and teachers, Lil' Rev is always among the very best. His teaching materials, videos and both in-person and video classes are extremely good. He says, "you can find me traveling across the country, teaching and performing at Ukulele Festivals. Every autumn I tour the eastern regions of America, followed by journeys deep through the south and up through the west in the winter." Click here for more about Lil' Rev.
Tony Anthonisen - Tony’s classes and teaching style emphasize providing an environment for ukulele learners that is caring, encouraging, and 100% non-threatening. He firmly believes that “if learning and playing ukulele isn’t fun, why do it?” Click here for more about Tony.
