Music is for everybody!
This course will introduce the basics of the ukulele and how to play it. Students will learn primary chords and be able to play songs and sing along while playing. Suggest your favorite songs! You will also learn principles of a jam, how to play as a group and the history of the instrument and its popularity. Each participant will be given their own binder, and new pages and resources will be added as the course progresses. Taught by Susan Jones.
No instrument? No problem! We have ukuleles available on loan, or you can purchase a uke from our friends at Chesbro Music.
A desire to make music with others!
