This fun workshop is tailored to a wide range of players from (just beyond) beginners to advanced players.

Stuart Fuchs returns to Bernunzios for a fun-filled workshop based on the music of Chuck Berry. Stu is thrilled to return to Rochester where he gave his first ukulele workshops in our store years ago. Check out this VIDEO to preview what you will be learning.

Learn the stylistic nuances of rock n' roll on your Uke!  We’ll play lots of fun and easy songs from the Father of Rock n Roll, Chuck Berry.  By exploring songs from Chuck’s deep catalogue and applying Stu’s “Uke-a-billy” method you’ll give your ukulele playing that classic rock n’ roll style & edge.  You’ll learn new rhythms, melodic licks that can be used to solo, and learn to improve your ability to strum and sing at the same time.  In addition, you’ll gain an insight into the creative ways Chuck Berry weaves storytelling and rhythm & blues to help create the style of Rock n Roll music.   

If you tried to give Rock n’ roll another name, you might call it ‘Chuck Berry’ ” - John Lennon.
