Class Ukulele 

This class serves as an introduction to ukulele. Students will work on ensemble pieces, solo work, and technical fundamentals. All levels of experience are encouraged, as our capable instructor layers instruction to fit each student's ability. This class can also be used to explore guitar, as many aspects of guitar translate to the ukulele. This class serves as a good proving ground to see if a student is a good candidate for private ukulele or guitar lessons. For this reason, students are encouraged to take a private lesson for further instruction upon completion of the class and with the recommendation of the teacher.
