Ukulele

Ukulele Boot Camp

This one-class session is designed to get grownups oriented to the ukulele so they can enjoy self-study with a uke and facilitate a kid’s casual exploration of the instrument at home. Please bring your own ukulele. Kids are welcome to attend with an adult, but because of the pace of the class, the kids are not necessarily expected to absorb everything. Cost is $20 per teen/adult age 13 and up, or $8 per child age 12 and under.

Ukulele Classes 

Is your five-to-eight-year-old thinking about playing guitar? Violin? Ukulele is a great stepping stone, and a great instrument in its very own right. In a fun, relaxed setting, we include core music activities such as rhythmic movement, singing, percussion, and pre-literacy, along with team turn-taking games. Kids will learn rhythmic strumming plus, if they are able, picking patterns; and three to five chords to accompany songs. They can even learn to play a simple melody! The group will discover important vocabulary for contrasting musical qualities and the major scale. Caring gently for a musical instrument and building relaxed practice habits are foundations for a lifelong love of learning and music-making. Class is delightful and the learning is infectious!

If your school or group of friends pull together six or more children, we can run a ukulele class for you.
