In this episode I’m chatting with Stuart Fuchs, performing artist, multi-instrumentalist, music educator & workshop facilitator.  He specializes in Ukulele, Gypsy Jazz and Classical Guitar, Didjeridoo, and Percussion.

Here is what we talk about

  • Why does music exist?
  • Music for healing
  • Biggest challenge to overcome as an artist
  • Why do we need to practice?
  • Music teaching and learning
  • Tips for finding a good music teacher
