Announcing Classes and Workshops for 2014 WCUR

Here they are: the long awaited-classes and workshops for the 2014 West Coast ‘Ukulele Retreat. A little something for everyone and some quality time with each member of our esteemed staff.

Registration is still open, but fees go up on February 14, so I encourage you to get your registration in as soon as possible. Early registration also guarantees you a place to stay at Asilomar (rather than off-campus) and enrollment in the classes and workshops of your choice.  

So, without further ado, here are some of the offerings for this year. For more information on each of the classes and workshops, please visit our website.
