Introduction To The Ukulele - Ages 5 to 7 - 10 week class

This class is designed to give young children a fun and positive first experience with a musical instrument. 

Students will learn how to hold and strum the ukulele and some basic technique. They will learn five chords and twelve songs.  They will not have to learn to tune the ukulele, we will do that for them in each class.  Purchasing a tuner is optional but recommended if a parent would like to learn how to tune the ukulele.  Children will receive songs to play along with at home but no practice at home will be required.  Students will not be ready to take the Beginner Classes until they are 8 years old.  An approved ukulele will need to be purchased for this class.  


Beginner Ukulele Part 1 - Ages 8 and up - 10 week class

The Introduction To The Ukulele class IS NOT required before taking this class.  Students will learn how to tune, strum and play commonly used chords on the ukulele.  They will receive recordings of the practice songs to use at home.  Learning the ukulele is easy and fun and students will be playing songs from the first lesson giving them

success and keeping them engaged and excited.  Some practice at home will be necessary.  An approved ukulele and tuner will need to be purchased for this class.  Parents are welcome to take this class with their child and they receive a discount.  This class is appropriate for beginners of any age, even adults!  

Beginner Ukulele Part 2 - Ages 8 and up - 10 week class

The Beginner Ukulele Part 1 is required before taking this class.  Students will learn strum patterns and basics for singing along with the ukulele.  They will learn more chords so they are able to increase their repertoire of songs. They will receive resources for continued learning at home such as play-along-videos.  We will also work on mastering orchestrated songs to perform.  

Ukulele Club - Ages 8 and up - ongoing class

The Ukulele Club is an ongoing class for those students who have completed Beginner Ukulele  1 & 2.  It is a time for students to connect with others who share a common interest.  They will build friendships while simply playing songs together and will participate in learning from and teaching one another.  Students are encouraged to bring or suggest songs to share with the club.  The instructor will lead students in learning new chords and new songs.  The more they play, the better they will get.  The club price is $47.00 per month.   

Summer Camps - Ages 5 and up
