(Come to any and all as often as you wish.)

Level  1

Ukulele For Raw Beginners
2 months

Maybe you’ve never played an instrument or it’s been a while. It’s always good to start from the beginning. By the end of the first hour you’ll have learned 4 chords and done 3 songs. Guaranteed!

Level  2

Beyond Beginner Ukulele
Duration: 2 months

Now we’re rolling! Enjoying popular songs from the ’50’s through the ’70’s. Almost everyone knows them.

Level  3

Beyond The FUNdamentals
Duration: 2 months

Plenty of new challenges. For example, more than 1 strum rhythm per song, chucking, and a sprinkling of more difficult chords. We always remember that we just came to have FUN, as we discover that the better we get the more fun it is.

Level  4

Songs, Songs ‘n More Songs (Strums, Strums ‘n More Strums)
Duration: Ongoing

Any songs in our collection, which keeps growing. I offer up new challenges to see what flies, as well as respond to what’s asked of me.

Level  5

Old Romantic Standards
Duration: Ongoing

These are classics from the first half of the 20th century – gorgeous songs with jazz chords – barring and 4 fingers. And more strum patterns – more vocabulary allows you to better express yourself.

Feature Fridays

A popular, all-levels ukulele class
Duration: Ongoing

An instruction and technique class focusing on one genre or theme for 2 months. The material ranges from Level 1 to Level 3, so there’s something for everyone, but not everything is for someone.

Past themes have included ‘The Country Collection’, ‘Summer Songs’, ‘A Woodstock Collection’, and ‘A Celtic Collection’.
