Participants in a Ukelele Zen Retreat

Explore this playful approach to the music-making process with Grammy-nominated musician and teaching artist Stu Fuchs.

Strum along with Stu Fuchs and learn an improvisation game that allows you to make music, stay present, and have fun.

The ukulele offers an accessible way to bring music-making into your daily life.

Whether you're new to the ukulele or have been playing it for years, join teaching artist Stu Fuchs in this weeklong Ukulele Zen retreat. Gain knowledgeable class instruction and learn how to create a deeper music practice for cultivating joy and relieving stress.

You focus on how to:

  • Listen deeply to the present moment in order to approach music-making from a more joyful, nonjudgmental, and relaxed perspective
  • Nurture your connection to the intuitive musician within
  • Access a more relaxed technique so you can enjoy playing for longer with less discomfort

Ukulele Zen is a unique method that weaves music study with mindful movement and accessible mindfulness practices from the Plum Village tradition of the late Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh. Leave with new skills and inspiration to continue your music journey at home.
