Having professionally taught banjo, Dennis also has performed for Ronald Reagan and played with music groups around the world. “Bluegrass ukulele” began when Dennis was asked to adapt banjo songs on the ukulele for a student at The Strum Shop. This was life changing as Bluegrass Ukulele Celebration was born!
Dr. Fisher now teaches in-person and online lessons in in his favorite ukulele music style! Foggy Mountain Breakdown, Rocky Top, Dueling Banjos and many more classic bluegrass songs sound like a “hammered dulcimer on steroids” when played on the uke. His bluegrass ukulele technique has also been featured at the Reno Ukulele Festival. Dennis takes a special interest in students young and old helping spread his enthusiasm for the love of music.
