If you’ve been visiting this site at all, you may have noticed that I haven’t posted for a very long time. Alas it’s been a very busy year for Judy Marshak the actress and singer. I’ve been on stage, out-of-town, in a variety of theatrical productions almost non-stop since last May/2015. Very gratifying as an artist, but very frustrating as a wife, mother, friend, gardener, dog-owner and ukulele teacher! Being away from my home for so many months is not easy, and although I will be leaving to do one more show this spring, I will be officially home by the end of this May and ready to start teaching again. I appreciate all those who have waited patiently after contacting me about lessons and workshops while I was away.
So for all of you ultra newbies, eager to finally figure out what to do with that ukulele you got for Christmas, I’ll be holding a 2-Hour Crash Course on Sunday, April 3, from 3:00 – 5:00 in Newmarket. Cost is $50. More details on the Classes page.
And for those who are ready to take the next steps to expand your skills with new material and techniques in a fun, weekly group setting, stay tuned for news of The Ukulele Sessions starting back again when I return. I plan to run them throughout the summer. If you’re unfamiliar with The Ukulele Sessions, check my past posts or the Classes page for more info.
*** I’d like to thank Michael del Mundo for this gorgeous sketch, which he clearly did for a workshop in 2010. I felt that it so expressed exactly the feeling when a group of players convene for learning or jamming, and it is so beautifully crafted.
(And you also may have noticed that this page has lost some of it’s background graphics. I am in the midst of doing some updating to this site, so things should start looking snazzy very soon! )
