Ms Barbara & a Rainbow Ukulele

Kids Free Online Ukulele Class! With Ms Barbara & her Niece, 9-year-old Sophie
5 Saturdays: July 11 ~ August 8; 1-1:45pm(ish)

Sophie & Ms Barbara are co-creating this class, so they decided to also co-create a video to tell you all about it! Please watch our video here.

Barbara Gail (who co-owns The Ukulele Place with her husband, Jeff Hanna), & her 3rd-grade niece, Sophie, invite all children going into 2nd, 3rd, & 4th grades, to join them for 5-weeks of online, group learning & music-making fun.

Their upcoming class will be held ‘live’ on zoom, & offered for free & by donation.

Jeff playing his Ohana Willow Wood Ukulele, Among the Palms

Beyond Level 2: An All-inclusive Ukulele Class, Join from Anywhere, on Zoom

9 Wednesdays: July 1 ~ August 26; 5:30-7pm

Although taking a couple of months off from most classes, Jeff wants to offer just one a week to keep the music joy vibes going. Right now, Level 2 has the greatest demand.

He welcomes all Beginner Class graduates, all Level 2 players, & the more advanced folks, too, because there will be some NEW SONGS they don’t have (yet!).

He’ll continue adding new songs to keep it interesting. Some songs may be more challenging than others, it’ll be a mix. Enjoy playing what you’re able, try your best at the others, & don’t sweat it.

Whether a work-in-progress, or polished, whether amateur or pro, we invite you to share your latest creations! It’s a safe place to give it a try, so come on into our Zoom room, & play.

And there’s the equally important role of audience!
