Take a 4-week journey exploring the rudiments of playing the ukulele. We will cover tuning, chord vocabulary and applied music theory which will have you breaking out all kinds of tunes in no time! We’ll supply you with an arsenal of strums and easy licks. If you’ve played guitar before, the transition will be a snap with a handful of transposing tricks. Come prepared to sing and play and have a fun time.
You Could “Uke” meets once a week for 90 minutes over four weeks.
