Master Class – Dave Egan: Jazz Standards for the Ukulele
Tuesday, August 11, 2015 @ 7:00 PM
Dave Egan is a prominent ukulele instructor, teaching UCSC’s OPERS class series and at the nationally attended West Coast Ukulele Retreat in Monterey and on the island of Hawaii, as well as at the Wine Country Ukulele Festival in Napa. His unique approach to adapting jazz standards to the ukulele focuses on including the rich complexity of the original chord voicing while preserving the elegant simplicity of this cherished instrument. This class is for all levels and will include practical techniques for adapting jazz standards to the ukulele for accompaniment and instrumental arrangements. Bring your ukes and a notepad. The group will play some classics, and Dave will help you understand some basic rules of song arrangement.
