Ukuleles aren’t just for luaus! After mastering the fundamentals (tuning, holding, and finger placement), we’ll focus on really getting comfortable with your instrument. Watch, listen and play along as you build on the basics of chords, strumming, playing up the neck, and trying out some variations and tempos. No musical experience is needed. Bring your ukulele, and let’s make some music.

What to bring to class:
Please bring your own ukulele (soprano, concert, or tenor - no baritone) and required text: Hal Leonard Ukulele Method Book 1 with audio CD.
