Beginner Ukulele


with Paul Migliaccio

Calendar Nov 6, 2017 at 7 pm, runs for 6 weeks

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.

This is a beginner class, but students who have some experience with the ukulele are also welcome. Learn about tuning, strumming, fingerpicking, chords, reading tab...then putting 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.

Just Once Piano for Busy People


with Don Pride

Calendar Nov 13, 2017 at 6:30 pm, runs for 1 week

You don't need years of weekly lessons to learn piano. In just a few hours, you can learn enough secrets of the trade to give you years of musical enjoyment.

How do we do it? While regular piano teachers teach note reading, piano professionals use chords. And you can learn all the chords you'll need to play any song in this one-evening. Any song. Any style. Any key. If you can find middle C and know the meaning of Every Good Boy Does Fine, you already know enough to enroll in this workshop.

Required materials fee of $29.00 for workbook and practice CD is payable to instructor at the class.

Students do not need to bring keyboard to this class.

Do you sing in the car, by yourself? Love music but hesitant to sing in front of others? It's time to get beyond all that and make a joyful noise! In this class, participants become an instant choir – beginning with the simplest forms of duet improvisation and harmonic possibilities.

Large group, small group and solo-opportunities will be offered. This class is not about songs – it is about singing!

Martin Swinger, accomplished vocalist and musician, leads you safely and gently through vocal warm-ups, vocal techniques, hitting pitch and breath control, dealing with stage fright and into creative singing games!
