I have arrived in my old stomping grounds of Portland, Oregon. Fresh air, big trees and lots of ukulele players! I’ll be presenting my Finger-Picking Ukulele By Ear workshop at PUA President Marianne Brogan’s home studio on Saturday, August 11, 2012. The 10am workshop is sold out, so I have added an 8:30am workshop also which has six slots remaining. The workshop is 74 minutes in length. Cost is $25 per person at the door. I’ve developed a new approach to learning to finger-pick for all levels that also provides some great ear training. Email me for more information or to sign up (dville (at) teleport.com). I’ll also be available for a few private lessons in the Portland area on Friday, August 10.
