WHAT PREVIOUS PARTICIPANTS HAVE SAID ABOUT ANNE'S TEACHING: “Anne Ku’s strumming workshop focused on an oft-neglected but essential part of playing the ukulele. She demystified the process by breaking down (and slowing down!) each strumming pattern and having us practice it repeatedly. She also applied each strum to a specific song or songs so we were able to immediately apply our new skills. Later she sent us a handout containing all the strumming patterns so we could reinforce the techniques at home. Best of all, Anne is a friendly and relaxed teacher who treats her students, even the rankest beginners, like musical colleagues. I can’t wait to take her follow-up workshop.” “A carefully thought-out session, covering the essential ground and presented by someone who is clearly passionate about music. It was nicely tailored to the needs of the participants. Very useful, and exactly what I wanted. It was a thoroughly enjoyable session. I would happily sign up for another one.” “This is the class that you never knew you needed. But when you’ve done it, you’ll realize you should have done it years ago.” “The handout is excellent, and the class was both informative and fun.” ABOUT THE LOCATION: Historic Lower Mills is that part of Dorchester that borders Milton. The Walter Baker Building is within sight and walking distance of the Milton T station (which is a short ride on the Mattapan Trolley from Ashmont Station on the Red Line -- you do not pay extra for this ride). Free street parking. Watch this video about this part of Boston: https://youtu.be/NSgAUwHYOa4
