Stuart Fuchs -- Ukulele Zen Workshop and Concert

Stuart Fuchs is a talented and innovative musician and teacher featured at many ukulele festivals. He will be in San Luis Obispo for a workshop and concert at the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art, 1010 Broad Street, in downtown San Luis Obispo (near the Mission).

When practiced regularly, the playful and holistic method of "Ukulele Zen" will improve your body awareness, and enable you to experience deep relaxation and a sense of effortlessness while playing your ukulele. You'll become "One with the Strum"!

This workshop is open to beginners through advanced students (some basic experience playing ukulele is recommended). 

Schedule for the evening:

  • 6:00 pm Arrive, tune up, meet up
  • 6:30 pm Ukulele Zen Workshop 
  • 8:00 pm  Solo concert by Stuart Fuchs
