In this class we will learn to read music for ukulele, starting with open strings and building up to reading and playing simple music in the key of C. We'll be using Book 1 of the "Ukulele in the Classroom" series as well as supplemental handouts. We'll demystify the notes on the page, learn more about playing in an ensemble, and strum and sing some fun songs. Join us!
Note: A ukulele with a low G string is highly recommended for this class. Please contact me for more information if you need help getting and/or installing a low G string.

This class is for those who have a fair amount of experience reading music notation for the ukulele, can play in a number of keys and read chromatic melodies. We will be using book 3 of "Ukulele in the Classroom" as well as supplemental handouts. We'll be exploring some new and fun material, some new keys, and getting more comfortable with sight-reading music for ukulele. We will also be working on playing in a group, exploring dynamics, tone and practice techniques. And of course there will be lots of fun singing and strumming as well.
