Ukulele: Relax and Play Music  

Take care of yourself and learn to play the ukulele. We will start from the very beginning with lessons in chords, strumming patterns, introductory music theory, and maybe even a little fingerpicking. You will learn to play and sing a variety of popular songs, including ukulele classics from the 20s and 30s, Pop tunes, Rock, Blues, and Folk. We will also take advantage of the joy of playing music with others from the very first class. Please bring a ukulele to class. Note: A Concert or Tenor size ukulele is strongly recommended. While the Soprano size is very familiar and cute, the larger sizes provide a more comfortable and accessible learning and playing experience. Additionally, please bring a music stand, clip-on tuner, and recording device (phone is acceptable) to class. Required textbooks: The Daily Ukulele: 365 Songs for Better Living, by Liz and Jim Beloff, and Jake Shimabukuro Teaches Ukulele Lessons: Book with Full-Length Online Video.
