More Information on this Workshop

Aloha! No, we aren’t having a class in Hawaii; however, we will bring a little bit of Hawaii to Indiana as students build a popular Hawaiian instrument, the ukulele. By the end of the week students will have their own tenor ukulele to play and sing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow!” John will provide the highest-grade materials, including figured Tasmanian Blackwood and Macassar ebony. The instrument will be built from scratch, including neck carving. The ukulele will be ready for finish at the end of the week. Whether you are new to building stringed instruments, or are an experienced builder, this class will teach new skills and methods such as soundboard bracing, joining necks to the body and much more. Mahalo!
