About this event
Have you always wanted to try the ukulele? Musicians of all skill levels are invited to try one of seven weeks of workshops with Glen McCarthy, instructor at the Mason Community Arts Academy and at George Mason University, who has shared his expertise with the Veteran community through the Veterans and the Arts Initiative since 2015.
At the end of the Series, they will also offer a bonus workshop. If you have always wanted to sing and play the ukulele – but aren’t feeling quite ready, get tips on how to improve your singing technique and your confidence in a bonus workshop on Zoom November 2. The bonus workshop will be co-led by Adiza Jibril, professional singer with The United States Army Band “Pershing’s Own” since 2013. Jibril also provides musical leadership at the Fort Myer Memorial Chapel for multiple denominations.
These workshops will take place Tuesday evenings, and are FREE to Veterans, Servicemembers, military family members, and military caregivers. Please reference our information sheet for details, including minimum age of participation for military family members and community policies. We will provide more information about the online platform by email to all registered participants.
