S17A3 Ukulele for Beginners

Ukulele is one of the most widely sold instruments in the world. Why? Because it's fun, easy to learn and extremely portable. Learn basic ukulele chords that can be used to strum and sing hundreds of songs. The class will play common sing-a-long songs and children's songs that could be sung with grandchildren. How to tune the ukulele, ukulele resources, and strumming techniques will also be covered. A limited number of "loaner" ukuleles may be available for the session. Contact the instructor to reserve an ukulele or for instrument purchase recommendations.
