AJ Leonard & Jenny Rowlands Workshop and Concert
Multi instrumentalist, arranger and recording artist A.J. Leonard is one of Australia’s pioneer ukulele players and is highly regarded to be among the best in the world. After attending the VCA Jenny Rowlands continued her study of the cello overseas and has performed professionally throughout the classical scene in Australia. Together they are a true melding of musical minds, known on the world circuit for their unique ukulele/cello interplay and finely crafted arrangements.
AJ’s Philosophy- In the 70’s I was fortunate to learn strumming techniques from a master that I still use today. These techniques as far as I know are unique even in today’s omnipresent ukulele culture. Our strumming hand produces the sound. The right hand or “the engine room” is so called because it’s what drives and controls the rhythm and dynamics. It’s like a runaway horse that needs to be tamed and controlled.
- Skill Level- A knowledge of common chords (Intermediate)
- Learn multi task strumming to enhance the rhythmic possibilities in your playing
- Requirements- Bring your ukulele … Baritones are welcome but perhaps helpful if they bring a capo!
