Learn the ukulele, four strings of fun in a stress-free environment. Emphasis is on learning to strum popular songs to sing along with. This is a practical learning experience for all levels including beginners. The goal is to play songs of various genres in various groups sizes and to customize the experience. The unique club design of this course enables students to take it multiple times.

 

Supplies: Each participant brings a tuned ukulele to class – either soprano, concert or tenor. A Snark type clip or tuner or cell phone app is suggested for tuning. If you need to purchase a ukulele please shop local for help selecting a model that meets your hand size, dexterity, style and budget. Ask the store to do the initial tuning so you are prepared for the first class. Picks aren’t necessary, but if you wish to use one, purchase a felt one.
