The Neenah Public Library will offer free weekly ukulele workshops with Sam ‘Ālika Bader beginning Thursday, January 17. Sam, a multi-instrumentalist and native Hawaiian, has been playing ukulele from the age of 9. He has been teaching group ukulele classes at the Library since 2016. At the Thursday workshops, Sam will teach new skills, new techniques, and new songs – something new every week! For confident beginners, advanced beginners, and intermediate level ukulele players.
Workshops are held on Thursdays, from January 17 through March 14, from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. in the Library’s Storytime Room. No registration required and no fee. Attend a few or all nine workshops.
A ukulele open jam follows each Thursday night workshop. Open to anyone interested in playing with other ukulele players. Bring your own ukulele – banjoleles and guitars welcome, too. Music provided – or bring a piece you’d like to share with others. The open jams are held from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. Open jams are open to all skill levels and all ages. (When no class or workshop is scheduled, the open jams begin at 6:00 p.m.)
