The 'ukulele happenings around the club and class at Alvarado Middle School in Union City, CA.
Saturday, October 3, 2009
Things are happening this coming week. Derick Sebastian, a wonderful uke player from Maui, is giving a benefit concert for the AMS 'Ukulele club on Wednesday, October 7 @ 6 pm. It will be at Alvarado Middle School in Union City - $3 for students and families, $5 all other. No one turned away for lack of funds. In addition, Rick Rasay and his local group Garden Island Blend will also be performing. It should be fun. I hope to get at least 100 folks to come. Derick is an inspirational type of player, having started playing 'ukulele while in middle school. I am looking forward to hearing again.
I'm a middle school teacher who enjoys playing the ukulele. I have started a ukulele club at my middle school and with the 2009-2010 school year I am now teaching an elective class for 6th graders - Beginning Ukulele.
I play regularly with the Royal Hawaiian Ukulele Band at the Templebar in Berkeley. I am trying to figure out how to play more.
