Michigan's ukulele ambassador, Ben Hassenger, plays with the Ukulele Kings and is cofounder of the Lansing Area Ukulele Group, the Mighty Uke Day festival, Interlochen's Uketoberfest and the Midwest Uke Camp in Olivet, Michigan. He teaches ukulele workshops regularly.
Ben also plays guitar in the Blue Jello band and writes songs about dogs, love, Michigan and other important topics.
Ben's first lesson, "Become One with the Strum," teaches a variety of techniques including strums suitable for folk, rock, reggae, polka, ska and calypso as well as his own Benstrum.
The second lesson of the day, "Playing Well with Others," teaches how to use strums and chords that complement what others in an ensemble, big or small, are doing.
