It’s easy to get started on the ukulele. Just three lessons and you’ll be playing!

With knowledge of just a few simple chords and strums a ukulele can bring a lifetime of musical enjoyment.

Session 1, Part a: Getting ready: tuning and setting reasonable expectations.

Session 1, Part b: Let's play! 3 chords, 1 strum, a hundred songs. We'll work on learning 1- and 2- finger chords, practice switching from one to another, and play some simple songs. We'll also learn to read a chord diagram.

Session 2: A few more chords, a few more strums, access to a few more hundred songs. Focus is on expanding our chord repertoire, changing chords quickly, and singing along as we play songs. 

Session 3. We'll finish up with the last few most-used chords and playing still more songs. Along the way we'll talk about feeling confident in joining local music gatherings, finding alternatives to challenging chords, and continuing your learning after the class is over.

Don't forget to bring your ukulele!

Note: this class is for adults and motivated teens.
