Beginning Ukulele
This is the perfect starter class for the new ukulele player or the novice who wants to sharpen their skills.  Students will start with beginner lessons that cover how to hold and strum a ukulele, plus all the basics of tuning. This class will teach you to strum a few basic ukulele chords properly and comfortably before you start looking at music books, chord charts, tuning diagrams, and tablature, so you won’t have to figure it out all at once.  Bring your ukulele, a music stand (if you prefer to use one), and video recording ability to make videos for practice at home.
