Beginning Ukulele Workshop for Adults

The ukulele is a fun, portable, and affordable instrument that can be used to play a wide variety of musical styles. It makes a great beginner instrument as it is surprisingly easy to make nice sounds and play familiar tunes. In this workshop we will learn the basics including first position chords, strumming, fingerpicking, and note reading. We will learn a song together and students will develop the skills to independently learn songs they choose. This course will start you on your ukulele journey whether you dream of 4 string stage stardom or strumming chords on the beach.
