Introducing: Strum In Joy!
If ever there was a time that we needed to gather love, kindness and creativity around ourselves and one another, it is NOW.
In this series, Rural Soul Music Studio founder Chelsie Henderson will guide you through 10 weeks of group ukulele playing - and singing! - spanning many styles of music.
You will begin with the basics and by the end will be playing as part of an ensemble (musical group), and will be invited to play for community events.
This is for you if you desire to...
Learn a new skill that you will have for life and can share with others.
Stretch your physical and mental wellbeing.
Move beyond a rhythmic or playing “plateau”.
Be a part of a close knit and caring community.
Share your skills with friends and family (perhaps even teach them yourself!)
Meet other fun, unique and compassionate people.
Let go of blocks in your life and get out of your comfort zone.
SHARE JOY THROUGH MUSIC!
Here’s how it works:
10 weeks of invigorating IN PERSON GROUP CLASSES on Thursdays from 1:00-2:15 pm at Rural Soul Music Studio (90 Broad Street, Schuylerville). The classes will run from September 14 through November 16.
GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY. You will have the opportunity to play as a group at our final celebration and other community gatherings. This is totally optional but so fun and often people’s favorite part of being in the group!
The final celebration will be held on Friday, November 17 at 5:00 pm (location TBD).
ONE-ON-ONE TIME. You will be invited to schedule a complimentary 30-minute private lesson! This is your time to shine: improve your technique and work toward your goals. Even though this is overall a group experience you will get valuable individual insights and guidance to play with more confidence and ease over time.
BONUS MATERIAL and GIFTS!
Inspirational emails with tips and resources to keep you motivated and to dive more deeply into ukulele music, techniques, and history.
