Cynthia Seputis- October 6th 2018

Join clinician Cynthia Seputis and FVAOSA on October 6 for Uketoberfest!  The ukulele is fun for both children and adults to play.  Come learn some tricks andtreats to use in teaching the ukulele to your students while singing and playing a variety of kid-tested songs and pieces.  Ideas for adapting the ukulele for students with special needs will be provided.  Bring your own uke if you have one, but instruments will be provided for those who don’t.
