The Australian Ukulele Teachers and Leaders Association (AUTLA) is hosting a fun-filled Professional Development day on Friday 13 at SPRUKE 2019.

The invitation is open for ukulele leaders, teachers and anyone interested in working with the ukulele in any context. No matter what population you work with, or in what setting, this forum will be a great opportunity to gain some strategies for teaching new skills, learn some useful tips on technique and skill development and have some serious fun playing music together!

The keynote speaker for this program is Dr Vicky O’shea Abad, President of the Australian Music Therapy Association. Vicky has achieved international recognition for her clinical work and research in the area of music therapy, parent-child intervention, and the impact of music early learning on family health and wellbeing. Vicky will be talking about the role of the ukulele in supporting children’s development, families and communities from a music therapy and neuroscience perspective.

***UPDATE*** Cynthia Lin, Youtube sensation and modern-day jazz ukulele diva from San Francisco, Californiais presenting “Arranging and teaching for a mixed level class.” Through her popular YouTube channel (20+ million views) and approachable teaching style, Cynthia helps people across the world discover the joy of ukulele.
