With its chunk-a-chunk sound, whispery nylon strings, and diminutive body, the ukulele is having a moment. Find out why the ukulele is making a strong comeback in this beginner-level class. Students who have some experience with the ukulele are also welcome. Learn about tuning, strumming, fingerpicking, chords, reading tab...then put it all together to learn your first songs. Scales, technique, and easy music theory will also be discussed. Ukulele should be soprano, concert, or tenor size. Ukuleles are available to purchase at local music stores, eBay, or Amazon. Please bring an electric tuner. Students are asked to purchase Hal Leonard Ukulele Method, Book 1, ISBN 9780634079863, from bookseller of their choice.
