Victor Litz Music offerS Group Ukulele camps with Nani .
She is a self-taught ukulele player and has been playing the ukulele for over 40 years.

Her big music genre is Hawaiian music because of where she was born and raised in Hawaii.  She encourages students to relax and enjoy playing the ukulele.  Teaching style three fold:  1) listening to learn 2) good chord transition techniques and 3) economy of motion with strumming.

To keep students interest we choose songs that they want to learn besides songs that would help them in their learning.  I do not do a lot of music theory.  My concentration is for beginner ukulele players through intermediate lessons.  Individual and group lessons are available with Nani.    She leads the Monthly Maryland Ukulele Jam that meets right here in Gaithersburg!

Nani also leads the Litz  Ukulele Club every Wednesday, from 3:30-5:30, at Victor Litz Music Center. Individual lessons with Nani are also available.
