Do you have a ukelele hanging around your house that you want to learn to play? Maybe you’ve been considering taking up an instrument for the cognitive benefits? Or perhaps you’ve put your uke down and want to get started again? Whether you are a complete beginner or want some motivation to play again, this class will get you on your way.
In each session we’ll explore four primary content areas:
- Instrument ownership & care
- Simple chords & progressions
- Strumming & picking techniques
- Basic theory & sight reading
We’ll learn easy songs from folk, pop, blues and traditional Hawaiian music (singing along - with our masks on)
No experience playing an instrument required.
